Day 11 | Empowered to Prosper

Day 11 | Empowered to Prosper

3 John 1:2, “Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.” What is the common response to someone sneezing in our culture?  Saying, “God bless you!”  Have you ever thought about why we give “blessings” to strangers when they have a physical response […]

Day 12 | Cross-Eyed

Day 12 | Cross-Eyed

1 Corinthians 2:2, “For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” If someone were to ask you, “What is your main focus in life?”  Or in other words, “What do you look to as inspiration?”  What would you say?  Some might say, “My family,” “My country,” […]

Day 13 | Jesus is My Sensei

Day 13 | Jesus is My Sensei

Luke 6:46, “Why do you call me, Lord, Lord, and do not do what I say?” “Wax on, wax off!”  Do you remember Mr. Miyagi from the movie Karate Kid?  Mr. Miyagi was the sensei (karate expert) to young Daniel LaRusso in the movie.  Daniel Son, as Mr. Miyagi liked to call him, came to […]

Day 14 | Wholly Holy

Day 14 | Wholly Holy

1 Peter 1:15-16, ”15 But just as he who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; 16 for it is written: Be holy, because I am holy.”  Imagine you’ve been playing volleyball in your friend’s backyard all afternoon on a sunny fourth of July with the temperature in the 90’s.  After […]

Day 15 | Loving God, Loving People

Day 15 | Loving God, Loving People

Matthew 22:37-39, “37 Jesus replied: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.” Did you know that Jesus was a master at making complicated […]

Day 16 | Living by Faith

Day 16 | Living by Faith

Genesis 12:2, “I will make you into a great nation and I will bless you; I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.” When God gave the above promise to Abraham he didn’t even have one child and was 75 years old.  As a matter of fact, his name was still […]

Day 17 | One Way

Day 17 | One Way

John 14:6, “Jesus answered, I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Have you ever driven the wrong way on a “one way” street before?  If you have, you probably heard someone yell out something like, “Stop- you’re going the wrong way!”  And if […]

Day 18 | By Grace Alone

Day 18 | By Grace Alone

Ephesians 2:8-9, “8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God– 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.” You cannot save yourself, only God’s grace can save you.  Imagine going skydiving without a parachute and trying to use the […]

Day 19 | His Masterpiece

Day 19 | His Masterpiece

Ephesians 2:10 (NLT), “For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Do you own anything that is valuable, if so how do you treat it?  Maybe you own an expensive piece of jewelry and keep it in […]

Day 20 | More Than Conquerors

Day 20 | More Than Conquerors

Romans 8:37, “No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.” When we believe in Jesus’ work on the cross we become “more than conquerors” because Jesus defeated death, hell, and the grave on our behalf.  Jesus became our substitutionary sacrifice and made atonement for all our sins, past, […]
