Social Media Christianity?
The modern Christian media personality may be an Instagram Christian. We read their books, watch their presentations and love their body of work.

They also may be empty suits playing a part.

The Word of God is Precious
The Old Testament can be intimidating. There is a definite learning curve involved in reading it. It is longer than the New Testament and contains unfamiliar names and terms. Yet, it is no less valuable. It is God’s Word just as filled with His Spirit as the Gospels. It is, therefore, more valuable than gold. You should get to know the Old Testament despite the trendy dismissal of it in some circles today.

A Christmas Hero | Pastor Unlikely
Joseph does not get a lot of attention in the Christian faith. Sure, we briefly talk about Him around Christmas time but he is almost an afterthought. Jesus is rightly the center of attention. After that, Mary is usually the focus of most discussions of Jesus' family. Even the Wisemen and their journey get more attention from Christians. Yet, Joseph is quite a special individual. Only Joseph is chosen to be Jesus' earthly dad out of all of the men of history. It is an amazing privilege...

Feeling Invisible at Church?
There is nothing more isolating than being alone in a crowd of Christians. I used to attend a church of thousands. I would come to the same service every week. I was a new believer at the time and excited. I read the Bible about being part of the Body of Christ. I yearned for close relationships with others. I made an effort week after week to show up at church looking for fellowship. Yet, no one seemed to care. This is not what Jesus intends for us.
We love our family.  We love our friends.  That is normal.  Jesus calls us to more.    He shows us how to love to a better standard than what is normal.  He loved us when we were His enemy.  He then tells us to do the same.  We are called to love the lost, the broken and the most unlovable...just like Him.  For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? God First
