Make That Change

"Make That Change" is how Michael Jackson finished his song "Man in the Mirror." I love that song. To me it talks about the value of personal responsibility but I'd like to add that as Christians, we must first go to God. Now I know that God and His words have been taken out of context as well as our actions (or inactions) in history to choose our way verses God's way. Those decisions have caused ripple effects of pain and death all around the world for generations. As I try to look at the entirety of the Bible, I can see how God has indeed provided the Way for us to live in these times today, however difficult they are. Please let me know if I've twisted the Truth of God or hold it high in this latest blog post, which is what I always aim to do. I hope this encourages you in some way to continue to go to the Lord in prayer. He is already working throughout these difficult times and may we continue to trust in Him following His lead to love as He has loved us.

Bible Time & Worship Episode 29 – Living Hope

If you're surprised by the reactions you are facing with these changes going on in the world, remember that Peter was too. We remember how Peter denied Jesus three times although he didn't think he would. But Jesus knew (Matthew 26:30-35). Jesus called him by name through Mary when he told her to tell the…
