Nothing Else by Cody Carnes

As Christ followers, we need to slow down and just be in the presence of Jesus (Psalm 62:1). It’s what we need (see Luke 5:16). We need his perspective. Without his perspective, we might might find ourselves fighting against him even when we think we are serving him (see John 16:2).

The God of Our Politics

Now that a peaceful inauguration is behind us, perhaps we need to rethink God in politics.

This past election cycle has been one interesting one.

It felt like some actually put God on trial because of how they view God and politics.

Perhaps some were disappointed.

I cannot speak for others here, whatever their political leanings.

But one thing is certain: the God of the Bible cannot be contained or limited to our theo-political boxes.

Try as we may, our attempts only prove foolish, as wise as we think we really are.

Jesus is Lord (1 Corinthians 12:3).

Love is a powerful thing.

“For God loved the world in this way: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16 CSB).

It’s love that took Jesus to the cross. It’s love that kept him there.

Love is a powerful thing.
