Rediscover Jesus Program Reflections
One of the things I love about our faith is that our God is a God of second chances, fresh starts . . .
I think about this often, and I always come to the same realization: I don’t know Jesus anywhere near as well . . .
To rediscover is a beautiful thing. It’s time to rediscover Jesus—not just for our own sake . . .
Try as you might, you cannot escape him. Jesus is the inescapable friend who only ever wants your . . .
So, perhaps it’s worth exploring who Jesus thought he was by asking: What did Jesus say about . . .
For those who delve into the question with a humble heart, the evidence is overwhelming, and . . .
In great contrast to the depersonalization of the world, Jesus affirms God’s personal interest in you . . .
Through this lens of truth Jesus places everything in its proper place, bringing order to every aspect of life, and . . .
Each parable or teaching, each encounter Jesus has with a person highlights what God cares about and . . .
For until we learn to love ourselves as God wants us to, our ability to love others will be limited and . . .
He wants generosity to reach into every area of your life so that through you he can love and . . .
When we forgive, we share the love of God with others and rid ourselves of dangerous poisons that can prevent us from . . .
The Gospels turn our social structure upside down by announcing that we are all children of God, and . . .
Some things we look at help us become the-best-version-of-ourselves, and others don’t. Having custody of the eyes means . . .
Like so many things in life that we have little or no control over, how we respond to suffering makes all the difference . . .
When we stop pumping the poison of judgment into the greenhouses of our relationships, we all begin to thrive . . .
First, we all need a group of people to do life with—people who walk with us through the good and the bad, who encourage and . . .
You have heard it said that the best things in life are not things. So what are the best things in life . . .
Making the lame walk, giving sight to the blind, setting captives free—these were all radical. Forgiving people’s sins—even more radical . . .
It is not our natural inclination to love unconditionally, especially when we have been wronged. This is where Jesus comes in . . .
The most radical moment in the history of the world was that Sunday morning when Jesus rose from the dead. Ignore it if you wish or . . .
If you want to see and experience miracles in your own life, pray a wholehearted prayer of transformation. That’s a prayer . . .
If you let Jesus turn your life upside down, you will be happier than you ever imagined was possible. And . . .
Our lives change when our habits change. God uses new habits to transform us. These four habits will have a beautiful and . . .
If you want to rediscover Jesus, the first step is to delve into the Gospels. They are the most comprehensive record of who Jesus was . . .
It is impossible to get close to Jesus and stay close to him without developing an intimate daily conversation with him . . .
Self-denial has an incredible impact on a human being. It refines the soul, sharpens the senses, strengthens the will, and . . .
The richness of our spontaneous conversation with God flows from having a time set aside exclusively for prayer each day . . .
The more we close the gap between the person we are today and the person God created us to be, the more we will . . .
This is the truth: We don’t see things as they really are—especially ourselves. We all think we have twenty-twenty vision in life, but . . .
What are you thinking? As you make your way to work each day, as you are waiting in the doctor’s office or standing in the grocery store line . . .
God is goodness, and so every sin is in some way a rejection of God. This is why the most devastating dimension of sin is . . .
The daily denial of self allows us to see that we are sinful, but also opens us up to the grace we need in order to . . .
You want the kind of joy that only God can give you. There are always two questions wrestling in our hearts . . .
At some point as we grow in grace and awareness, we discover that we do indeed want what God wants for us . . .
In a thousand ways every day we tell ourselves and each other: Holiness is not possible. But it is a lie . . .
Opportunities to create holy moments are everywhere. In fact, every moment is an opportunity . . .
If you knew you were going to die one year from today, how would you change your life? Why are you waiting? Life is short . . .
