Philippians 2:1-5 Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or [...]

1 John 3:13-24 Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you. We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love his brother abides in death. Whoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer [...]

Matthew 7:7-11 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, when his son asks for a loaf, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, he will not give [...]

Have you ever found yourself dealing with a struggle in your life and you can’t find out why? I am a firm believer that many times when we find ourselves in that situation it is because we have taken our eyes off of Jesus. The Bible is filled with people who, at some point in their life, turned away from the Father or the Son and it cost them dearly. So the question for each of us is not if we will ever turn away, because I can guarantee we will, but what to do differently when it happens. When it happens we need to simply remember who we have been so richly blessed by, and return to our first love. We need to turn our eyes back to God and to Christ.

Mark 10:28-30 Peter began to say to Him, “Behold, we have left everything and followed You.” Jesus said, “Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or farms, for My sake and for the gospel’s sake, but that he will [...]
