God’s Rehab for Weak, Weary Faith

God’s Rehab for Weak, Weary Faith

Jon Bloom
God’s plan to rehabilitate our faith can seem painful rather than pleasant. That’s the nature of rehab. It’s hard, and it can hurt. But the hardness and hurt are healing.

How Can We Be Angry and Not Sin?

How Can We Be Angry and Not Sin?

There is a kind of anger that comes from our regenerate, Spirit-directed nature, even if it is unavoidably tainted by our indwelling sin.
Arrow
Rest in the Prince of Peace

Rest in the Prince of Peace

Jon Bloom
Let us not forfeit this peace and bear needless pain. Let us carry everything to God in prayer and trust him fully to provide everything we need.

The Mosque on the Mount

The Mosque on the Mount

Jon Bloom
For the past 13 centuries the Al Aqsa Mosque has occupied the temple’s former site. It is not a sign of God’s endorsement on Islam. Rather, the mosque is an unwitting guardian of the new covenant reality.
Arrow
Will You Wrestle with God?

Will You Wrestle with God?

Jon Bloom
There are times when God only releases his blessings on us after a season of prolonged and even painful wrestling with him.
Arrow
Prayers for Christ’s Increase and Our Decrease

Prayers for Christ’s Increase and Our Decrease

Jon Bloom
We should not only desire this increasing joy, but also specifically ask God for it and be willing to endure whatever it takes to produce it.
Arrow
Why We Pray for Our Meals

Why We Pray for Our Meals

Jon Bloom
Praying before we eat a meal is a beautiful thing — or should be a beautiful thing. It is gloriously appropriate to give thanks and praise to God from whom all blessings flow.
Arrow
How to Have Intimacy with God

How to Have Intimacy with God

Jon Bloom
We look for intimacy with God in all the wrong places. Here’s a better way to pursue deep and rich intimacy with the God of the Bible.
Arrow
God Does Not Need You to Be Strong

God Does Not Need You to Be Strong

Jon Bloom
Our natural bent will be to find our strength for today in ourselves, and not in God. God gives us weaknesses so that we have no choice but to lean on him.
Arrow
God Knows

God Knows

Jon Bloom
In your affliction, cry out to God for help. He hears. And when the time is right, God will answer you. For God sees you — and he knows.
Arrow
Our Eyes Are a Parable About Faith

Our Eyes Are a Parable About Faith

Jon Bloom
Our perceptions are not our primary source of truth; they were never designed to be. They require the help of another source in order for us to accurately understand what’s truly real.
Arrow
There Was a Man Sent from God

There Was a Man Sent from God

Jon Bloom
Our faith is not a private matter. It is a public window through which God wants to reveal Jesus to others.
Arrow
Jesus Offers Escape from Hypocrisy

Jesus Offers Escape from Hypocrisy

Jon Bloom
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?
Arrow
Don’t Live Strong, Live Wise

Don’t Live Strong, Live Wise

Jon Bloom
This prayer of Moses will help you keep life in perspective. It will help you remember what is transient and what is eternal. It will help you live wisely.
Arrow
Auld Lang Syne

Auld Lang Syne

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

Who Would Have Dreamed?

Jon Bloom
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.
Arrow
Christianity and Atheism

Christianity and Atheism

Jon Bloom
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

Lay Aside the Weight of Slander

Jon Bloom
Slander is one of the adversary’s chief strategies to divide believers and derail the mission of the church. Be on our guard and lay slander aside.
Arrow
Lay Aside the Weight of Low Self Image

Lay Aside the Weight of Low Self Image

Jon Bloom
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
It Takes Work to Stay Warm

It Takes Work to Stay Warm

Jon Bloom
The key to surviving the spiritual polar climate we live in is fire. We’ve got to stay warm. If we don’t, it can result in injury or even death.
Arrow
Prepare Him Room

Prepare Him Room

Jon Bloom
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

Jesus Will Provide the Wine

Jon Bloom
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

The Prize Is Worth the Price

Jon Bloom
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.
Arrow
Don’t Follow Your Heart (New Book)

Don’t Follow Your Heart (New Book)

Jon Bloom
Jon Bloom’s ‘Don’t Follow Your Heart’ will help you heal, as well as avoid spiritual heart disease, by identifying and resisting your heart’s errant predilections and directing it to do all God’s will — to follow Jesus.
Arrow
You Are Meant to Move Mountains

You Are Meant to Move Mountains

Jon Bloom
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
