What separates Christianity from other religions is in the first book of the Bible. Even now in the year, we are living, God still does this act.
What is it that God does, which we find in no other religion?

Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God. Whenever I pray, I make my requests for all of you with joy. (Phillippians 1:3–4, NLT).
Okay, Apostle Paul; What’s your point?

He was living his everyday life the way he always lived.
One thing among many about Paul was he had a concern with the lives lived by others. Paul cared about others. He expressed his love in prayer for his friends. …
Yes, Jesus paid it all. He forgave your sins, and all is well with your soul. Until this disturbing thought captures your attention. Did God forgive me for sure?
Is this you?
Or, you have a friend in God’s grace one day, then out of God’s mercy the next.
Living an in and out experience with our Savior is not the life God intends for you.
I’m reminded often of this one verse. It’s about the deliverance God gave the children of Israel wandering in the wilderness. …
Leslie, It appears the internal battle begins to ease when I see the trial for what it is,. Very well writen article here. Yes, We desire holiness but it doesn't come without some disturbance in our soul and our daily lives. I heard Pastor David Jeremiah say;"No one drifts towards holiness." I must stop the drift and accept God's will in my life. Thank you for this reminder.

Everyone else has too much and we do not have enough. Stuff, that is. Do you have a problem of not running side by side in life with the “haves,” instead, walking in step with the “have nots.”
What’s the solution to this problem vexing our souls?
The writer, King Solomon, is called, The Preacher in this book. He describes all the pursuits of life as vanity. Forty times in Ecclesiastes we read the word, vanity.
The Hebrew root of the word vanity denotes “mere breath.”
Now, take a deep breath, hold it, now breathe out…
I’m distressed to see our laws being disregarded by the people we choose to keep our nation safe. It is as our leaders no longer see themselves as our servants. Rather, they picture themselves as overlords. Their actions are not good.
