The more I study, the more I read, the more I learn and grow, the more I realize...
It's all about Jesus. He's the love of life.
He divides us from the way of the world and unites us through grace.
He created in the beginning and will destroy in the end.
He split time between what was and what will be.
In light of that, I've been looking over some of my past articles on Jesus and want to share them with you.
How to Not Stink
I was riding in the car with my husband when the song “Come, Now is the Time to Worship” played on the radio. The song says someday every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord and every knee will bow before Him - based on Romans 14:11. As I contemplated the lyrics, I said, “That stinks.

Who are we? Who is He?

Do You See the Miracle?
The birth of a child is a miraculous, life-changing event. At the same time, births happen every day, all over the world. They have since the beginning of time. One birth, however, was miraculous on a scale that the world had never seen before and hasn’t seen since. (Read more.)

The Word of God
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1). So, “in the beginning,” when “God created the heavens and the earth,” the Word was with God and was God. The fullness of the Word of God already existed at the creation of the universe. Mind-blowing. (Read more.)
I hope you've enjoyed this focus on Jesus. May He also be your love, your joy, your reason to live.
