This Is Us | Journeying Together | Cause to Stumble

Stop condemning each other…live in such a way that will not cause another believer to stumble.

This Is Us | Relentlessly Good | Love Your Enemies

“But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you.” Luke 6:27 This may be one of the toughest commands Jesus gave us. He said “Love one another” a lot, and we might even ace that test. After all, we are mostly in charge of…

This Is Us | Relentlessly Good | Authentically Good

Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.  1 John 3:18 “Here come the blue-haired church ladies,” sighed Magda. She tightened her server’s apron, grab an order pad, and pasted a smile on her face. “Good afternoon, ladies,” she said. “Same table?” Mrs. Perkins sniffed, “What’s that…

This Is Us | Relentlessly Good | Make Peace

If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. Romans 12:18 “Look at that! His car tires are on my side of the drive,” Ted growled to his visiting cousin. “Some neighbor. I’m reporting him.” “I hate the new chairs in the sanctuary so I’ve organized a protest…

“Truly I say, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”  Matthew 25:40 “Would you go with me to the custody hearing?” Della asked. Lonna shut her eyes and grimaced, glad her new life group member couldn’t see her over the phone. She’d already let Della…

This Is Us | Relentlessly Good | The Goodness of Jesus

Jesus went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil…  Acts 10:38 It’s a good thing none of us is God. Try as we might to be selfless, kind, and generous, if somebody gets into our business or messes with our kids, our goodness goes right out the window. Being the…
