I may be in a small group of people who love Mondays, but I love Mondays!  I’m so energized from the weekend and I’m ready to start another week of conquering whatever is in front of me.  It’s probably because I like being busy!  Busyness makes me feel like I’m accomplishing something.  I feel fulfilled when I’m busy.  I probably feel that way for a few different reasons.  I’ve told myself things like, “The more I do, the more I succeed” or “busyness produces results”.  I’ve quickly found out that those things aren’t necessarily true, nor healthy.

Another Gospel

Written by Bob Crittendon

After attending a National Religious Broadcasters Convention, certainly there is much to process.  It is a time for many to receive training and exhortation, to connect with practical tools in order to be better communicators of the gospel.  For others, it is a time for encouragement, to be built up in the faith.

My NRB experience for years has been to hear firsthand from Christian communicators, including authors, musical artists, commentators, actors, and more.  I believe that one of the threads upon which I was able to explore this year at the convention in Orlando was the conflict between the true gospel and what I have referred to as “another gospel,” borrowing from the verse in Galatians 1:8 - “But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be accursed.”

The Promise of Amazing Grace

Written by Sam Belkofer, LPC

Spring reminds us of God’s promise that there is constant and consistent rebirth. For Christians, the Resurrection of Christ is God’s most loving and powerful Promise and gift of all.  Each year, Christians honor and practice the rituals of Lent, leading us to the sacred despair of the crucifixion of Jesus and the joy of the Resurrection of Christ.  This affirms God’s promise of eternal life by the path to him through our faith that Christ will lead us there. This time of year it is easy to see this promise in nature’s gifts of blooming trees and flowers, the greening of grass and the gradual warming of the temperature. The earth is made new before us. We have the choice to be made new as well.

RRJ:  Your faith became real during college as you got involved in campus ministries. What was different about that environment and how did your faith change?

 

Mia:  As a child, church was instilled in me by my grandmother. She was a pianist for two churches and would travel between the two on Sundays with myself and my siblings in tow. When I was eleven she died and I didn’t get back to church until I got my driver’s license.  I would drive myself and was baptized at the age of 17. 

Joining the Baptist Campus Ministries on the campus of Alabama A&M University taught me that faith is walked out daily not just a Sunday experience. Listening and sharing testimonies helped me to see God in all things. It was then that I began to ask God for direction and intentionally look for is gracious hand in my life.

    Essentialism

    by Greg McKeown

     

    Life is complicated. Life is full of responsibilities and opportunities, planned duties and serendipitous possibilities. There is so much we could do, but so little we can do. Many of us battle our whole lives to focus on those few, significant items that we should do must do, and yet so few of us ever feel like we are even nearly succeeding.

Faith at Work

  • Keon Addison, School Teacher and Fitness Coach, Unleashed Potential

     

    RRJ:  Was there a specific moment in your life where you understood Jesus as Savior and Lord, or did that happen gradually?

     

    Keon:  I was raised in church because my mom was a Christian and pianist at five different churches in Mississippi. (Back then, church was only open one Sunday a month.)

    I was baptized at an early age, but it wasn’t until I was 17 and my friends invited me to their youth retreat called DiscipleNow, hosted by First Baptist Church, that I truly believed. The youth minister, Troy Amster, gave an invitation. During that moment I felt God’s presence like never before. I accepted Him in my heart and that’s when I drew closer to Him. I received Him as my Father, Savior and Lord.
