The Bible says, ‘God paid a ransom…it was not paid with mere gold or silver…it was the precious blood of Christ’ (vv. 18-19 NLT). You must come to a place in your life where you are secure in who you are ‘in Christ’; where you don’t allow your sense of worth to be based on the opinions or...

We learn from looking at the breastplate worn by Israel’s high priest that: a) we are precious to God; b) we are close to His heart; c) He will never turn His back on us. You say, ‘If God will never turn His back on us, does that mean we can live any way we please?’ No, and here’s why. As a...

Notice two more things about the breastplate worn by Israel’s high priest: 1) It was close to his heart. Once a year, on the Day of Atonement, he went into the ‘Holiest of Holies’ where God’s presence was, in order to obtain forgiveness for the people’s sins. And he wore different things, each...

Comedian Jerry Lewis joked that his best wedding gift was a film of the ceremony – because when things got really bad in his marriage he could go into a room by himself, run the film backwards, and walk out a free man! We smile, but you can’t go back and rewrite history any more than you can...

If you’re serious about managing your anger, here are two things to keep in mind: 1) Don’t hang out your dirty laundry in public. Keep it in the laundry room. When you’re hurt and angry, spreading gossip about your offender comes naturally. Don’t do it. The Bible says, ‘A gossip goes around...

The Bible says: ‘Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. And do not bring sorrow to God’s Holy Spirit by the way you live’ (vv. 29-30 NLT). Notice, when you lash out in anger you not only...
