Kingdom Character: Growing in Joy

0 Comment

Joy is something that everyone wants, but most never find true, deep joy. Joy is not only a fruit of the Spirit; it’s also a spiritual power with a force behind it. It’s more than “happiness” (which is fleeting). The true joy of the Lord is sustaining; we find this to be true especially when.. read more →

Kingdom Character: Growing in Peace

0 Comment

If you turn on the television or radio or observe social media, much of what you’ll see is trouble, heartache, and fear. Peace is something that people desire to have down deep inside, but it’s not easy to achieve without God. Jesus knew that we would face trouble in this world when He said to.. read more →

God wants us to mature in our character to become more like Christ, and self-control is an area that people can get the wrong idea about. When you hear the words, “self-control,” don’t hear, “You have to do it all on your own.” That’s not true. We can’t do everything by our own self-will. The.. read more →

Kingdom Character: Growing in Compassion

0 Comment

What comes to mind when you think of compassion? Maybe giving to the poor … helping someone in need … your heart being moved for someone else and their situation. Perhaps you think of the compassion that God showed in sending Jesus to reconcile us to Himself. Regardless, one thing is certain: God’s heart beats.. read more →

We live in such a materialistic, success-driven world. It seems that everyone is looking out for number one – for themselves. But God calls His people to live differently: He calls us to live generously in every way, every single day. In order to honor God and live generously, our character needs to be refined.. read more →

Growing in generosity isn’t just about giving more; it’s about the condition of our hearts as we give. We may think that we are generous because we give to the poor, help the needy, or drop a donation in a bucket outside the grocery store. But generosity is about much more than just money. God.. read more →

As we grow in character, humility is one of the things that we definitely want to display more and more. We understand that our model, Jesus Christ, had a gentle and humble heart (Matthew 11:29), and He demonstrated it wherever He went. No matter the circumstances, He never lacked humility, and with his help, that’s.. read more →

5777: The Year of the Sword

0 Comment

“For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” Hebrews 4:12 Several years ago, the Lord highlighted the Hebraic calendar to me. I think the times and seasons of the.. read more →
