So, let’s make one resolution this year: to anchor ourselves to God’s grace.
Christmas beckons us to the King who conquers every darkness. Our Saviour. Immanuel, God with us—no matter what distracts or threatens us. This is the message we proclaim year-round at Insight for Living Ministries.
While Rome was busy making history, God arrived. He pitched His fleshly tent on straw in a humble Bethlehem stable. Reeling from the wake of the Greats—Alexander, Herod, and Augustus—the world overlooked Jesus.
As Scripture fills my mind, something changes deep within my heart. I quit focusing on my burden, I stop comparing, and I start considering the load another may be carrying.
The same power that first pushed up the mountains moves within the simple words of the Gospel: Jesus died for sinners and is alive today. Believe in Him, receive His forgiveness, and follow Him into the life God intended.
Right about now, I’m shaking my head. How could anyone handle such a series of grief-laden ordeals so calmly? Think of the aftermath: bankruptcy, pain, 10 fresh graves...the loneliness of those empty rooms.
Too many churches have forfeited their charm and become places of shame, not grace. Let’s put an end to that!
The phenomenal happens through our daily faithfulness to align our thoughts with God’s—to think biblically in order to act biblically...to fulfil our role in God’s plans!
Hope. It’s the one thing you and I cannot live without. But trying to hold on to hope can take all your strength, particularly when hope’s old enemy, doubt, drags you toward despair.
