How the Gospel Frees Us To Risk

I want Christ, but I too often want Him as a kind of quantifiable spiritual asset, as something I can always check to be sure of just as I can check my bank account balance or my cholesterol level. I want what God has promised, but I want power of attorney to execute those promises when I’ve determined I need them. That’s not what the gospel of Jesus Christ is all about.

Confusing Times Call for Presence-Based Leadership

If even Jesus, the Son of God, could do "nothing of Himself, but only what He sees the Father do," how much more so do we need to depend on living in the Presence of God, sensing what He is doing in the situation and partnering with Him to carry it out.

Enduring Well: Responsibility

In response to a negative situation, the lie says, “I can’t do anything about this.” In contrast, the truth says, “I may not be able to change everything, but here’s what I can do about this.” Even if it’s only a small thing at the time, internally taking responsibility, rather than simply resigning in despair, is the path of healthy thinking.
