Featured video from last week:
People who follow Jesus stand out. Not all the time, perhaps. But eventually, they're going to have compassion when no one else does. At some point, they're going to have mercy when no one else will.
Jesus says his followers are designed to stand out, to act differently than the people around them. Don't try to blend in. You were designed to be different!
Jesus said sometimes people aren't able to see the value of God's kingdom. It's like hidden treasure. They're liable to pass over it, not recognizing its amazing value.
Ask God to open your eyes to any hidden treasure that you're missing.
When you're at the beginning of something great, it may not look like much.
Honor the people around you, whether you can see their greatness or not.
Jesus expects you to change your environment, calming the storms you encounter with the peace Jesus has given you.
Heal the sick. Cast out harmful spirits. Cleanse lepers. You'll never know what God can do through you until you try.
If you're having trouble sleeping at night, ask God to give you peace and rest. And then, if you still can't sleep, use the time to pray for and bless others. They probably need it.
Jesus encourages us to forgive others in the same way that we have been forgiven -- fully and completely.
God is profoundly present with us, even when we are not aware of God's presence.
God's plans for your life are sometimes painful, but they are always strategic and good.
Jesus expects his followers will heal the sick and raise the dead. Most of us need more practice.
Healing people and helping those in need are primary attributes of people who follow Jesus.
Jesus says we should love our enemies. But if we watch how he acts, we quickly learn that loving our enemies does not mean we have to do what they say. It does not mean we have to be silent when they make statements that aren't true. It does not mean that we have to adopt their values. In fact, when we love our enemies, they might not like it.
The better your idea, the more certain it is that people will oppose you. Don't let critics stop you from doing something great.
God gives you gifts so you can accomplish far more than you think is possible.
Jesus wants you to work on things that will last for eternity. Fortunately, he gives the power to do them when you stay connected to him.
A house can appear stable for decades. But Jesus says when a huge storm comes you'll learn if the house is built on a solid foundation.
If you quit a bad habit, you need to replace it with a good one or at some point you will feel like going back. Israel wanted to go back to slavery rather than face the challenge of advancing to the good place God intended for them.
You are capable of far more than you think you are. God sees your full potential and calls you to it.
Jesus says abundance flows from hearing God's word and understanding it.
Many of the things we do won't last. But good deeds can produce an eternal harvest.
Offer your requests to God with thanksgiving. Some days you may be hurting so bad it will seem impossible. But stay focused on God who loves you. God can heal your hurts.
Some people are able to see what God is doing before anyone else. Anna was like that. Like her, you can encourage people. This video also includes tips for making (and keeping!) New Year resolutions and goals.
