Jesus on the Topic of Stress

"Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to your life?” How apt Jesus’ words are, in fact, worry and stress can take away hours, day, months even years of our lives. Not many people find Jesus teaching on worry offensive but that is because they often view it as nothing more than a “Don’t worry, be happy” philosophy, a nice reminder to relax. However, pastor and author of Gagging Jesus: Thing Jesus said we wish he hadn’t, Phil Moore argues that Jesus’ teaching is far more radical as it tells us that stress is the chief symptom of our idolatry and self-worship.

Vision 2017

 The call to follow Jesus is not passive following. His call for us to follow was not a call for us to be “Jesus groupies.” It was not His intention for us to just to follow Him around, to just sit at His feet and eat from His hand. His call for us to follow Him was so we could learn how to be like Him, to do what He did. Jesus knew that He had a limited time on this earth. If the good news was to be perpetuated from generation to generation and to grow in scope, He had to pass on who He was and His purpose on this earth and send each of His disciples to the “ends of earth” to do the same.

Getting Out of the Boat

There is something – Someone – inside each and every one of us as believers who is prompting us to the truth that there is more to life than just sitting in the boat. You were made for something more than just avoiding failure, maintaining the status quo and feathering your own nest. There is something inside of you that wants to walk on the water, to leave the comfort of routine existence and abandon yourself to the high adventure of following God.

Choice

The choices we make today have an impact on the decisions we will be making tomorrow. They establish a pattern and a foundation for our life. We make decisions each and every day of our lives; some major and some minor. As long as we draw breath there will always be decisions and choices to be made.
