The battle between the flesh and spirit is a struggle the Christian knows all too well. It's like waging war on a decaying part of themselves, as Paul suggests in Romans. In many ways than one, he accurately describes the weight that sin has in this life. A nonbeliever will dive headfirst into sin, spiritually dead and undiscerning about the weight of their passionate desires. Our very nature is subject to God's wrath, but in His mercy He rescues and has provided a way back to Himself through Christ's atonement on the cross. This article will focus on the beginning of Ephesians 2 and being made alive in Christ.
With great power comes great responsibility. On a human level, an increase in power usually leads a person to become selfish and irrational, often abusing their positions if humility isn’t established. Thankfully, God does not operate on a human level when it comes to divine attributes, unlike the deities in Roman and Greek mythology. He is a God of unlimited power, completely balanced by His holy attributes.
Everyone is pursuing something. A degree, a high end job, a ministry, a classy house, a brand new car. All these things have one thing in common: temporariness. If the pursuit of eternal happiness was found in temporal things, Jesus would not have to have been crucified. I want to touch on the importance of leaving behind an impactful legacy that glorifies God. Intertwined in this article is a little more of my own personal experiences and why God has placed this heavily on my heart.

Ahh, a title that sums up the pursuit of the entire human race. Finding a true identity is the goal of every human from the moment they are born and follows them even to death. Sadly, there are those who miss out on the greatest joy of being defined by Christ by choice. True identity brings peace and fulfillment in a life that is filled to the brim in heartache and tragedy. This article addresses finding true identity in Christ and removing yourself from the shadow of someone else's life.
The greatest desire for the Christian is to fulfill the calling that God has uniquely designed for them to fulfill. Finding what that calling is could take several years of prayer after being converted and following God's direction (as it was for me) or it could be revealed quickly. However, there are several who are not believers who are wondering what their calling is and if they even have one. With the Coronavirus, this particular predicament has struck the world with full force as a wake-up call that time is limited on this earth.
