The Easy Yoke, Light Burden

When should I cast my cares on Jesus, and when, instead, do I join him in his agonized praying? I have often said that I can always tell when I have crossed the line and gone to meddling with God’s part of any situation; When I feel oppressed. Yet the Lord doesn’t say that he […]

The Bad Attitude Obeyer

One of the devil’s favorite techniques is to tell me to obey God and then he gives his own definition as to what obedience looks like. This puts us me a bind. If I try to “obey” the devil’s description it would mess up my life, but, if I don’t “obey,” I feel that God […]

Already Immortal

I was talking to someone concerned that they would get bored being immortal living with God. What would we do for all eternity? Of course, they were thinking of eternity on this planet surrounded by sin and struggling with their own sinful tendency to be stressed. Stress that comes from striving to be strong and […]
