Why We Must Be Devoted in Our Marriages

Posted by Ryan Thompson on

God used Hosea and his marriage to reveal himself to us. In the same way, God uses us and our marriage to reveal himself to others. The way we act in our marriage almost always aligns with how we act in our relationship with God. It also shows what we think of God and the gospel. If we always...

Why Does God Want Us to Pray?

Posted by Ryan Thompson on

What are the characteristics of God that come to mind while praying? Is he a distant, unconcerned, reluctant yet powerful God who thinks of our prayers as trifles compared to his divine plan? Scripture gives a much better picture. In Luke 11: 11-13 Jesus asks this: “’What father...

How to Know You are Relying on God

Posted by Ryan Thompson on

What is the difference between trusting in God and confidence in ourselves? Isaiah 50:10-11 contrasts those who rely on God and those who rely on themselves: “Let him who walks in darkness and has no light trust in the name of the Lord and rely on his God. Behold, all you who kindle a...

Share the Gospel Without Fear Like Elisha

Posted by Ryan Thompson on

In 2 Kings 5: 1-19, Elisha demonstrates how to share the gospel in a way that we can learn from today. When we think of speaking to someone about Jesus, there are often fears that stop the words before they come out. Sometimes we feel like we don’t know how to speak, or we are not good...

Delighting in the Law of the Lord

Posted by Ryan Thompson on

Psalm 1:2-3 says, “But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.” If we want to grow in Christ and...

Begin with the End in Mind

Posted by Ryan Thompson on

There is a reason the word ‘end’ has two meanings. It tells us when something is complete. When our life is complete and we have lived out the days God has given us, we come to the end. But end also means purpose. A good statement to remember is this: the chief end of man is to...

Why We Struggle to Live for God

Posted by Ryan Thompson on

Solomon started his reign so well. What happened? We experience the same failure. We fail to persevere in wisdom and holiness for the same reason. Solomon didn’t want it. He didn’t want holiness as much as he wanted riches, glory, women, power, and fun.  In our lives before we...

Experience the Presence of God Daily

Posted by Ryan Thompson on

We are the temple of God if we are in Christ. Do we live in the presence of God throughout our day? If we take a minute to think about our day as it comes to an end, there are many stretches of time in which we didn’t feel God’s presence at all. It could be while we were taking...
