From scabs to salvation!

From scabs to salvation!
‘As He was going into a village, ten men with leprosy came toward Him…’ Luke 17:12 CEV

Imagine…your fingers so numb and damaged you can’t work, next your toes, and you can’t walk. Now your internal organs are failing. You’re all scabby, and every day you lose a bit more life-then a guy speaks to you, and suddenly you’re not dying a slow, painful death anymore… you’re completely restored! Read all about it in Luke 17:11-19.
Ok, so things may not be nearly that bad for you, but here are five helpful hints if you feel like you’re losing more bits of yourself every day: (1) Turn to Jesus-make the choice to let Him help, and He’ll give you back your peace and joy. (2) Shout to Him! -if you want something desperately, act like it! Lift up your voice to God, and He will hear. (3) Do it! Just do what He tells you; faith doesn’t demand a reason! Don’t try and bargain with God; it doesn’t work! Your experience won’t be the same as everyone else’s. Some Jesus spoke to, some He touched, some He told to go; and they were all healed. You’ve got to walk it out (Luke 17:14). Each step brings you closer-but nothing happens ’til you take that first step of faith. (4) Praise Him! Only one of the ten came back and said thanks to Jesus; and He noticed. So don’t forget your manners; it’s much easier to ask for help next time if you’ve said thanks this time.

Okay. I’ll admit it. You know those people who adopt ‘cool’ words and just say them over and over again? That’s 100% me. I don’t even mean to—I just get sucked into word trends and then spend the next six months with nothing but ‘awesome’ or ‘rad’ in my vocabulary. One word I used to…

Genesis 1 Points to Bethlehem

The Bible is full of hidden surprises. Right in the very first verse, God left a clue that Jesus would one day be born in Bethlehem. Yep, those famous opening words, ‘In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth,’ tell us more than you’d ever think. To find out how they do this,…

Taking a Faith Step

Sweaty palms. Tight chest. Heart racing. Breath escaping. Body shaking. I open my mouth and no words come out; instead tears form and heat fills my cheeks as I bolt from the stage to the nearest bathroom.
