When I Just Don’t Feel I’m Enough

Each of us feel that we are NOT equipped for some of the challenges we have in our lives. We don’t feel adequate. Some of it is nagging self-talk that’s been hanging around for a long time. So, what do you do about it? It certainly does not help to sit and hope we were...

Many of the people who came to Jesus were those that did not fit the mental model we have of a Christ follower. After all, don’t people have to be shiny and clean, with their act together? Instead, they were outcasts who Jesus called His friends. And you are too. So how you relate to...

Is One Way the Only Way?

Many people think the idea of Jesus as the only way is a narrow-minded position. Yet in today’s passage, as Jesus clears the temple, the religious leaders question his authority in matters related to the temple.

How Jesus Opens Doors
