The Only Way to Land Safely - #6147
That cross isn't just history or religion. It's personal. It's deeply personal. It represents the total sacrifice of Jesus on your behalf. And it is the place where you can leave every wrong thing you've ever done and have it completely forgiven by God; erased from God's records so you'll never meet those sins on Judgment Day.
Les Miserables is a parable of love, grace, law and forgiveness.

Extending grace on game day
The worlds of college and professional sports are not always marked by gracious and sporting behavior. But sometimes an act of genuine class takes place, elevating the participants above the all-consuming rush for victory. In this instance, a Christian school did something beautiful on game day.
Finding beauty amidst brokenness
Can beauty come out of brokenness? God has the startling ability to bring out moments of grace and beauty out of even the most wrenching despair.
No Such Thing As a Secret - #6125
The Bible makes it clear that there is no religion or human goodness that can erase our sins. Amazingly, it was the very God we have rebelled against who reached out to give us a way to belong to Him. A way that cost Him the most precious thing He had - His one and only Son.
How to Have Everything You Need When You Need It - #6104
How will He supply what you need? Oh, He has so many ways, but you can be sure that, as in Elijah's time of need, God has "ordered His ravens" to deliver it. And when will you have it? You can be sure you'll have everything you need on the day you need it. Until then, your assignment is clear - be where God wants you to be, doing what God wants you to do that day.
Why God Sends the Storm - #6101
Could it be that the storm that's hit you lately - the storm that even threatens to break up your ship - is God's tool to drive you into His arms? Not because He's mad at you, but because He loves you.
The Illusion of Safety - #6094
The God you will face one day has told us bluntly that all our goodness will not make us right with Him. Then He explains what will. "Righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe...all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by His grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus."
The Infallible Umpire - #6087
Those who don't spend regular time in the Word of God are unlikely to recognize the will of God. As are those who come seeking God's direction, full of their own will. Many have missed God's best because they tried to manipulate God or His Word so that their will would be God's will. It does not work that way.
Looking For a Love You'll Never Find - #6084
Christ's love is the only one you can never lose, because it's not based on your performance. It's based on His promise, "I will never leave you." (Hebrews 13:5 ). The One who knows you best loves you most! He's the one person the real you can finally be safe with.
