Every story of faith has highs and lows. When things other than God take center stage in our heart we drift away. God has always provided a clear path back to Him, and the promise of a loving Father awaiting our return.
So, today, I want to focus on Samson as a man of great faith. A man who’s life can be viewed as a type, a picture of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
How can your faith help strengthen you, help you persevere, and even experience something beyond your wildest expectations?
We all have biases, sometimes overt, and other times more subtle and hard to see. Our faith calls us to see people the way God sees them, and to act in a way that glorifies God. Racism works its way in when biases are left unchecked.
Redemption is “regaining possession of something lost in exchange for a payment.” We all have brokenness and pain in our lives from wrongdoing (ours or someone else’s). Redemption in Jesus purchases back what we have lost.
What is the difference between living a moral life (a life of good morals, values, etc.), and living a life that is Christ-centered?
When Jesus sat with the twelve at the final Passover meal, he did more than just proclaim his impending death. Jesus unfolded to the disciples something God had done more than 1500 years before (3500 years ago), and why it is relevant today.
Spotting or seeing the injustice, immoral, and lawlessness behavior of a person or nation is the easy part. In fact you don't even need to be a christian to do so. How we respond to the immoral, injustice, and lawlessness will give more insight on our own lives over their actions
Today’s “story of faith” is about how God calls us to things that are difficult, and require a great amount of trust from us. It is in those challenging times that God provides greatly and makes Himself known to us.
Today we see how God created us to live, what sin has stolen from us, and how Jesus restores us to our proper created purpose. What was lost in Adam, has been redeemed in Christ.
