I know there's been a lot of believers struggling at this time and I wanted to encourage in any way possible. I know for myself I've been trying to overcome my thoughts and really try understanding the word and putting it into practice to explain my faith to feel confident with my bible study...

An Original Work / April 12, 2018
Based off 1 Peter 3 & Philippians 2
If we are encouraged
From being in Christ,
We share in his comfort,
And Him we are like.
We share in his passion,
With tender hearts, too.
We share in the Spirit.
He’s made us anew.
Then, filled with compassion,
Sometimes our bodies get tired and need rest. Other times our spirits get tired and need refreshed, i.e. our emotions sometimes get drained, or even our spiritual lives might feel like something is missing. Sometimes it is because we lack true Christian fellowship with the Body of Christ, and...
Love One Another

For His name’s sake.
Jesus Christ, God the Son, the second person of our...

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Phil. 1:2 ESV
I’ve been trusting Jesus Christ as both my savior and lord for a week now. Most of my life I thought I was a good Christian, but my lifestyle proclaimed a different story. I’ve written a good amount on my past life, which was steeped in sexual addiction and sinful habits, but some...
The Lord Jesus led me to read John 16 (Select vv. ESV).
“I have said all these things to you to keep you from falling away.”
What are “these things” Jesus said to them to keep them from falling away?
Well, first off, He spoke “these things” during the Passover Feast with his disciples. Jesus...
Is the goal of being likeminded with other Christians even realistic? If we think about all the church denominations and all the various doctrines and theologies and practices which are out there, is it even possible that we could all be of one mind, united in spirit?
I mean, there are those...
