When the ground seems to be falling away beneath us, we need solid ground to stand upon. We’re tempted to cling to fixed rules and structures to give us a sense of security, but these are a poor substitute for what really matters. In the book of Galatians, we find ancient wisdom that can help us thrive in anxious times so that we can experience the freedom Jesus gives.
Most of us do our best to avoid thinking about death, and if we’re honest, we’re often in denial. Yet facing the hard truth that we are going to die can enable us to live fully in the time we have — and to allow Jesus to transform our life before and beyond death.
If we want to find joy, thinking too much about our own happiness can actually be counterproductive. Instead, we need to think of ourselves less—to practice humility.
Sometimes we think life would be better if we got everything we wanted, but often, our desires are not all they’re cracked up to be. As we learn to pray, “Thy will be done,” we find that God’s will and desires for the world are better than we could have imagined.
Relationships are hard, but they’re also vital. Our annual relationship series is back to help you strengthen and prepare for your most important relationships!
It’s not easy to tell someone something they won’t want to hear—either we deliver the message too forcefully, or we avoid the conversation altogether. Yet these courageous conversations can help people grow and transform our relationships, and Jesus shows us how to have them well.
