Scripture Gives Us Many Reasons to Be Happy

When someone says, as many have, “Happiness isn’t in the Bible,” it’s not even slightly true. Even in versions that don’t frequently use the words happy and happiness, the concept is conspicuously present, not only in its many synonyms, but in words such as contentmentpeacedelight, and dozens of others in every translation.

When the Bible Conflicts with Our Culture

Here’s another great post from one of my sons-in-law, Dan Franklin, who’s married to my daughter Karina. While I admit I am biased about not only my daughters but about both my sons-in-law, in my opinion this is really great teaching.

When It Comes to Our Suffering, God “Gets It”

Jesus suffered the same trials and temptations we do. God understands our worst losses and heartbreaks, even our temptations: “Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted” (Hebrews 2:18).

Authentic Love Is a By-Product of Brokenness

To truly know Jesus and follow His example, it’s essential that we continually study and contemplate His words and the incredible aspects of His character. That’s why I’m excited about my new book, Face to Face with Jesus: Seeing Him as He Really Is.
