We all have something to be happy about - you're probably thinking about that since you began looking at this. Do you have a reason to be happy? If you don't, you need to place your faith in God and be thankful to Him for His indescribable gift to us - His grace that comes to us through His resurrected Son. Because of that, we have the supreme reason to be happy!Are You Riding on Empty?

Life can bring some tough challenges and overwhelming temptations. And when your faith is weak and spirituality is running low, you could be riding on empty as you face these tough moments. God gives us the fuel to stay strong and remain up to speed, but we have to allow Him to refill our tank with our praise, obedience, and righteousness.Transformed

The real distinction here as presented in scripture is not just a change in appearance by something applied superficially, but a renewal. This renewal brings everlasting, through and through, immortal, incorruptible life. This is God's meaning of becoming His child, touched with His grace when we put on Christ.Keep Your Eye on the Goal

This is certainly good advice when anything worth achieving is on your plate. Then you must also understand the forces that can keep you from your goal. External forces that may not be under your control can be provoking and distracting. But what about the internal forces that we allow to misdirect us and cause us to take our eye off the goal of salvation?How Will the World Know?

A revealing question to the life of a Christian. Can anybody tell you're a Christian? If you were accused of being a Christian, could you be convicted as a Christian? You must be found faithful to God, loving Him, loving others, and doing the work of good in your faith.What to do When We Fall!
March 09, 2014 10:11 AM PDT
This is the reality of the true question and is not, as some may think, what to do IF we fall. We are going to sin, and sin again. We can't be perfect, but we can put on perfection through Jesus Christ, to be buried with Him in baptism. Then, and only then can we find forgiveness through repentance, turning away from sin, a change, and then being restored to God.If Anyone Loves the World...

Clearly, we are faced with the choice of either loving the Lord God, or loving the things in this world. That's a choice of living eternally with God, or spending eternity with the consequences of a life here without God and eternally remaining as an enemy of God. Where does your love lie?Commit to Spiritual Growth
February 23, 2014 10:16 AM PST
Like any process of life that works on a span of time, it has to grow, mature, and get older. Our spiritual maturity also has a beginning and requires a life of growth. If you do not commit to nurturing your spiritual wellbeing, just as with any living thing, it will die. Without growth, knowledge, and wisdom, your faith is left a victim of every temptation that it comes across, and is left for dead. Commit to growth - commit to study yourself approved unto God.Examine Your Faith
February 16, 2014 10:20 AM PST
This examination can't be performed just once-in-a-while, but is a test that comes everyday in life. One must check to see if it is a faith that has works of obedience, demonstrates love, and longs for a hope to put on and be with Jesus Christ. A healthy faith is required to remain in contact with God's grace and mercy.I Love God With All My Heart
February 09, 2014 10:15 AM PST
Considering all that God provides for us and the life we are honored to have and share, a fundamental commandment requires we love God - and how much we should love God. Having a nature of love that we are created with, it shouldn't have to take a commandment to compel us to love God. It shouldn't have to take the sacrifice of His Son to compel us to love Him, but it's a reminder of sorts, that we must start there with a love for Him before we can express that true love for one another.
