Rather than just respite from a hectic, stressful world, Biblical peace offers the promise of the unity of God’s Kingdom. Rather than feeding the contempt of others that can come from amplifying our differences, it shows us that we have oneness in Christ.
Where do I find peace in a world of contempt?
March 5, 2023 • Jason McNutt • Galatians 5:13–23, Ephesians 2:11–18
How do I stay faithful?
April 2, 2023 • Jason McNutt • Galatians 5:13–23, Deuteronomy 11:18–20
In Scripture we see faith and faithfulness translated interchangeably because faith is more a belief. Faith manifests itself in faithfulness, which is obedience and action in accordance with the Lord’s will. We know how to do that through daily devotion to the Lord remembering who He is and what He has done.
Can gentleness aways be my motivation?
March 26, 2023 • Jay Owen • Galatians 5:13–23, Matthew 11:29
Jesus described Himself as "..gently and lowly in heart" (ESV), a remarkable claim to a world that values bolder qualities. Yet throughout His earthly ministry, time and again, He showed that gentleness led to unlikely relationships with unlikely people in unlikely places.
How do I show kindness in a culture of hostility?
March 19, 2023 • Jason McNutt • Galatians 5:13–23, Ephesians 2:14–16
Daily we observe acts of kindness and goodness or generosity. As Jesus' disciples, these acts should have depth. Our attitude should be to act in a way that we are affirming the infinite value in people with our time, money, talents and other things God has put at our disposal.
