A Picture I’ll Never Forget | Remembering Good Friday

On Good Friday in 2000 I was sitting on the back row in a Lutheran church and was overwhelmed by God’s presence just a couples hours after getting high.

That was the last time I got high.

That was the last time I felt alone.                                

That was the last time I felt hopeless.

Jesus’ sacrifice for my freedom was overwhelming.  I felt consumed by his love and mercy.

Good Friday

God spoke to me and said, “My power is greater than the hold that has on your life.”

I believed Him.

This photo continues to serve as a reminder to me of Gods grace and mercy that I experienced (and still do) 17  yrs ago on Good Friday.

Good Friday

The following passage of scripture is one of my favorites.  It completely describes what I experienced on Good Friday seventeen years ago.

I love God because he listened to me,
listened as I begged for mercy.
He listened so intently
as I laid out my case before him.
Death stared me in the face,
hell was hard on my heels.
Up against it, I didn’t know which way to turn;
then I called out to God for help:
“Please, God!” I cried out.
“Save my life!”
God is gracious—it is he who makes things right,
our most compassionate God.
God takes the side of the helpless;
when I was at the end of my rope, he saved me.
Psalm 116:1-6 (the MSG)

Do you want to receive the same grace, mercy, love, and life that I received?  Accept God’s offer to help you.  He is so willing to give to those who are willing to receive:

2 Peter 3:9 (NIV) The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

If you would like to begin a new life say this simple prayer with your whole heart to God:

Dear God, I acknowledge my great need for You in my life. I believe that Jesus, Your Son, came to this earth and lived, died, and rose from the dead all for me so that my sins could be forgiven. I want to give my whole life and heart to You. I want to turn away from evil and follow You. Forgive me of my sins and please lead my life.  Amen.

The Heavens & Earth | God’s Existence

The Bible states that God created the universe:

The Bible also states the humans would deny Him even though all that we see speaks of His existence: Continue reading

Moral Law | God’s Existence

 And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that He exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek Him.[1]

Let me start about by stating the obvious, it takes faith to believe in God.  I can already hear some of you: “If God were real, realizing that He is would not be dependent on a book or a ‘faith’ that you possess.”  It’s interesting if you think about it though, it requires faith to believe that God does not exist, I say even more so.

God has provided so much for us so that we can know Him. The issue that each person must settle is do you want to know Him.  Ask yourself, do you spend more time trying to find reasons not to have faith than you do exercising it? Continue reading

Spiritual Growth Tips For Those In Their Twenties

Spiritual Growth is important at any age but below are seven tips specifically for people in their twenties.

1.      HONESTLY EVALUATE.

I recently was introduced to the following three questions and they have been so helpful for creating goals, discovering what needs to change, and encouraging what is working.  They are: Continue reading

WHY IT’S NOT SO WRONG TO SAY SOMETHING IS WRONG

Phil Robertson recently made “controversial” comments  during an interview for GQ.  In light of this I wanted to see for myself exactly what the entire story said.

Phil’s comments certainly reflected his personal beliefs but as far as I can tell from the article, there are some things that others may participate in that he believes are wrong but that doesn’t seem to affect his respect and care for them as a human/person.

On a side note, I also thought it was interesting that there seemed to be a tone of admiration for Phil and his family from the writer for GQ.
