68 Reasons Why Jesus is Superior

Roman Road - crystal Ball - 1

Christians are walking the Roman Road together. There are gaps in the road, sometimes holes, grass, and weeds.

Often, we stumble, and sometimes we veer off the road and the stones, but Jesus holds out His hand and waits for us to grab it again. He picks us up when we stumble, brushes us off, and points us in the right direction. Continue reading 68 Reasons Why Jesus is Superior

What A Bike Ride in Tuscany Taught Me About Following Jesus

Bike-Keith - 1

Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2

Setting aside every encumbrance and fixing our eyes on Jesus.

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of accompanying university students to Italy. One of our optional opportunities was an 8-mile bike ride into the hills outside of Florence, with We Like Tuscany. To get to the country, we rode our bikes through the traffic. Our guide, Bill, told us to “go with the flow” and not worry about the cars coming within inches of us.

Each time a car got close to me, my front tire wobbled, and I had to stop and try to start again. The students were also excited and came within inches of me. Once, I crashed into a stone wall.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places, even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved. Ephesians 1:3-6

Every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. Think of it! The Creator of the Universe chose that His followers should be holy and blameless before Him and has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. Not some. EVERY spiritual blessing! Continue reading 30 Blessings & 25 Responsibilities for Christians
