Kingdom Strength

Posted by Chuck L. Betters on

When we develop personal goals we usually will focus on areas of weakness that we want to improve. However, we also need to focus on cultivating our unique strengths and channeling those towards building the kingdom of Christ! What is your greatest strength? Whether that be a character trait, a...

Let It Be Jesus In Our Hope

Posted by Peter Lammé on

Hope is deliberately future-oriented. When we look into the future—What good thing is around the bend? What light is at the end of the tunnel? That’s our hope. Most of the time our hopes are small—hoping for a restful vacation or a season of greater blessing. And while these...

Let It Be Jesus As Our Focus

Posted by Steve Coward on

How focused are you on Jesus? During the Christmas season, it seems as though everything is battling for our attention... and often, Jesus gets none. In Luke 2, there is a man named Simeon, who seems to have a singular focus. His focus was on Nothing But Jesus. We are told that he was "waiting...

Let It Be Jesus As A Wife

Posted by Melanie Betters on

Proverbs 31:10 tells us that “a wife of noble character is hard to find. She is worth far more than rubies.” This chapter outlines a beautiful template of a wife who places high value on her relationship with her husband. We can see Jesus all over Proverbs 31. A wife who seeks to be...

Let It Be Jesus With My Friends

Posted by Tyler Schoenberger on

“Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends," John 15:13. In this verse, Jesus gives us the highest standard of what being a friend means - to lay our lives down for them. (And remember, Jesus not only said this, he actually did it!) Now...maybe in...

Let It Be Jesus In Our Anger

Posted by Peter Lammé on

When it comes to our anger, anger isn’t the problem. We are. Anger can be a great emotion. When anger fights for the right things—anger is exactly what we should feel. When we really let it be Jesus—we should get angry! We should get angry that we fail to worship Jesus like...

Let It Be Jesus In Our Grief

Posted by Steve Coward on

While the Christmas season is an incredibly joyous time of year, for many, it can also be a very difficult time. For many, it is a reminder of family members with whom they are no longer able to enjoy Christmas. In Luke 2 we meet a woman named Anna who knew grief well. She married her husband...

Let It Be Jesus In Our Solitude

Posted by Tyler Schoenberger on

In a culture of screens, constant entertainment, and overloaded schedules, solitude is something that we rarely find ourselves having; but, when we do find those rare moments of solitude, where do our minds go? The irony of our solitude is that we are rarely ever "alone." We fill our minds with...

Let It Be Jesus As A Coworker

Posted by Peter Lammé on

The more and more we live in the world of Nothing But Jesus—where the work of Jesus and the love of Jesus is ultimate, the more and more foreign the working world can. We enter a place where we are judged by our works—not those of Jesus. Every workplace is ruled by a law—the...
