Jesus Offers Escape from Hypocrisy

Jon Bloom
Jesus Offers Escape from Hypocrisy
The Christians in Sardis had the reputation of being alive, but they were not. Their reputation was a phantom of a former real greatness. Is this true of you?

Auld Lang Syne

Jon Bloom
Auld Lang Syne
What makes “Auld Lang Syne” so powerful? It has nothing to do with a New Year and everything to do with an old friend.

Who Would Have Dreamed?

Jon Bloom
Who Would Have Dreamed?
This story is not of merely human origin. There is nothing like it in any other human religion or mythology: the Incarnation for the sake of atoning substitution for the sake of our redemption.

Christianity and Atheism

Jon Bloom
Christianity and Atheism
It’s true: The Christmas story is humanly strange. But to be fair, atheists also embrace wildly far-fetched, strange beliefs of their own.
Arrow

Lay Aside the Weight of Slander

Jon Bloom
Lay Aside the Weight of Slander

Lay Aside the Weight of Low Self Image

Jon Bloom
Lay Aside the Weight of Low Self Image
If we find that we struggle with a low self-image, we need to look carefully at it, because it may not be low at all.

Arrow

Prepare Him Room

Jon Bloom
Prepare Him Room
The season of Advent has begun — so full of tradition, so full of memory, so full of legend. And a season so full, often over-full, with the exhausting activity.
Arrow

Jesus Will Provide the Wine

Jon Bloom
Jesus Will Provide the Wine
When you fail in wisdom or fail to meet the righteous requirement of God’s law, or fail to love the Lord with all your heart, you need not fear. Jesus is able to make all grace about to you so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times you may abound in every good work.
Arrow

The Prize Is Worth the Price

Jon Bloom
The Prize Is Worth the Price
The pursuit of an Olympic gold medal is all-consuming. Athletes must structure their entire life around the training required for that elite level of competition because this pursuit can only be achieved with a ruthlessly narrow focus and rigorous discipline. The same is true for Christians.

Jon Bloom

You Are Meant to Move Mountains

Jon Bloom
You Are Meant to Move Mountains
Not every unanswered prayer for healing, provision, conversion, etc., is a result of little faith. But we must not let ourselves off the hook too quickly when we don’t see prayers answered or when our ministry efforts fail.
Arrow

God Says “No” for Your Joy

Jon Bloom
God Says “No” for Your Joy
The only time God gives us restrictions or prohibitions is for our joy. He never says “no” to us unless “no” will make us ultimately happier.
Arrow

Your Bible Is a Gold Mine

Jon Bloom
Your Bible Is a Gold Mine
The wonderful thing about the Bible is that we often find treasure in unexpected places. God loves to lace and layer revelatory riches in what at first seems like a fairly straightforward historical narrative.
Arrow

Arrow

Is Your World Too Small?

Jon Bloom
Is Your World Too Small?
We live in a small world at high speed. And this way of living tends to produce spiritual barrenness rather than richness. That’s why G.K. Chesterton, ahead of his time, was sounding a warning more than a century ago. He said to get your microscopes back out.
Arrow

Don’t Coddle Your Fears

Jon Bloom
Don’t Coddle Your Fears
We obey what we fear. Some fears are instinctual but others are conditioned. Most fears are expressions of things we believe. And what we believe governs our behaviors.
Arrow

I Need Thee Every Hour

Jon Bloom
I Need Thee Every Hour
The lyrics could hardly be simpler, and yet they capture one of our heart’s most profound longings and can be prayed in the sweetest or most sorrowful moments in life. The prosody of the music could hardly be more perfect. But it is not the skill of the hymn’s construction that makes it so powerful.
Arrow

We Should Pray for Healing

Jon Bloom
We Should Pray for Healing

Arrow

A Picture of Prevailing Prayer

Jon Bloom
A Picture of Prevailing Prayer
Real prayer begins with real desire, often with real desperation. We cry to God, but he does not seem to respond. God wants us to keep asking and cry out louder.
Arrow

Unlock God’s Storehouse of Grace

Jon Bloom
Unlock God’s Storehouse of Grace
We must stop looking at our lack: our lack of resources, wisdom, and power, even our lack of faith. Our deficits discourage and defeat. Satan does not want you to look to Jesus and all the abounding grace that he purchased for you.
Arrow

There Is Hope in Your Struggle for Light

Jon Bloom
There Is Hope in Your Struggle for Light
Our struggles, past and present, have profound effects on us for the rest of our lives. They affect how we grow now and in the future. But this isn't always negative. When we're in Christ, we can rest assure that our pain has purpose.
