everydayHOLINESS

“And in accordance with this will [of God], we have been made holy (consecrated and sanctified) through the offering made once for all of the body of Jesus Christ (the Anointed One).”  -Hebrews 10:10 (AMP) Holiness. That’s a hefty word. Some say only God is holy, others say you have to be holy by not falling into sin. We’ve heard …

everydaySYMPATHY

“For we do not have a high priest that cannot sympathize with our weaknesses …”  -Hebrews 4:15 (NKJV) So you tell someone about a hard time you’re going through—you spilled your guts— told them everything, the entire story, and they only smiled, patted you on the shoulder, and said, “There, there, it’ll all be okay.” That wouldn’t help at all …

everydayFORGIVENESS

“Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all evil types of behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgive you.” -Ephesians 4:31-32 (NLT) Every person is different. We all have quirks and different personalities, so naturally it is easy for people to get …

everydayLIGHT

“I have come as a Light into the world, so that whoever believes in Me [whoever cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] may not continue to live in darkness… For I have not come to judge and to condemn and to pass sentence and to inflict penalty on the world, but to save the world.” -John 12:46-47 …

everydayHELP

“Real help comes from God…” -Psalm 3:8 (MSG) Help is a good thing. Yes, that needs to be said—especially in a day when we are taught to live independently since kindergarten. What is help? Help is to give assistance or support to; to make pleasant or bearable.  Do you ever find yourself needing help? In our everyday lives—in our families, …

everydaySELFLESSNESS

“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me…”  –Galatians 2:20 (NKJV) In John 5:30 Jesus said, “I can of myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge…” Jesus didn’t rely on Himself to live life. If anyone could rely on self, it would be Jesus, but Jesus only did what …

everydayGUIDE

“However, when He, the Spirit of Truth, has come, He will guide you into all Truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.” – John 16:13 (NKJV) What is a guide? I know that might seem like such a simple question, but really …

everydayMERCY

“The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.” – Psalm 103:8 (NKJV) At some point in our lives we can all agree that we have messed up in some way or another. Some of the things we have done are even worthy of punishment depending on the severity of the situation. But the worst thing …

everydayBOLDNESS

“The wicked man flees though no one pursues, but the righteous are bold as a lion.” – Proverbs 28:1 (NIV) The definition of boldness is, “to be confident, to be secure, or to put trust in.” In today’s society we see boldness as almost arrogant or brash. However, looking in Jesus’ life it’s clear to see He was bold, yet …

everydayFREEDOM

“For the Lord is the Spirit, and wherever the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” – 2 Corinthians 3:17 (NLT) Could you use a little freedom today? That’s what I thought. Today, we’re going to look at a scripture that you have probably heard a lot, but maybe never looked into. The scripture is 2 Corinthians 3:17, “Now …
