June 30, 2013 – Luke 15 – In Faith, etc…

Today’s passage: Luke 15:1-11

How do we make a impression that is lasting and permanent in our faith in Jesus Christ? We see the personality of Jesus when he captivated the crowds and the power of Jesus by his healing acts. Jesus not only taught the message with authority, but he himself was also the message. How can we be fulfilled in our faith in Jesus? How does Jesus change our understanding of him?

June 9, 2013 – Judges 6 – In Discouragement

Today’s passage: Judges 6:1-6

Discouragement is nothing new to anyone who has ever lived in this world. It comes to us merely “because [we] are human”. There are times when we reach that point of desperation and depression and cry out, “Lord, what do you want me to do?” How do we get back up?

The Bible provides many examples of people in discouragement, most of which are far worse than our own experiences. BUT the Bible also shows a loving god who listens intently and actually does something about our situations.
