    The fear of rejection is the main reason most Christians don’t share their faith with other people. We’re afraid of what others will think. God has given us Good News, yet we’re scared to share it. We worry that our friends will reject us or that people will think we’re fanatics or “Jesus freaks.”

    It’s hard for any of us to truly understand how unique and valuable we are to God. And that’s why we’re vulnerable to the fear of rejection, because we’re full of self-doubt. And that’s why sometimes when another person criticizes us, deep down inside we have the doubt and fear that they’re right. So it hurts even more.

    I love the way my wife Kay watches horror movies. If something like Alien comes on television, she turns on every light in the room and sometimes pulls up the comforter to cover her eyes. Would she watch a horror movie in the total dark? Absolutely not. Many of you won’t, either, because light helps you see things more clearly.

    Discouragement will come; it always does. Maybe you feel discouraged because of a struggling relationship, stalled career, or failing health.

    When I was growing up, one of the things that impressed me about my dad was his big hands. I have big hands now, but my dad had huge hands! When he would do carpentry, the hammer just looked so small in his hands.

  • Have You Ever Gone Thirsty to Benefit Someone Else?

    The Bible says that as Jesus hung on the cross, he “knew that everything had been done. So that the Scripture would come true, he said, ‘I am thirsty.’ There was a jar full of vinegar there, so the soldiers soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a branch of a hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ mouth” (John 19:28-29 NCV).

    When the criminal hanging next to Jesus on the cross asked Jesus to remember him, Jesus replied, “I assure you, today you will be with me in paradise” (Luke 23:43 NLT, second edition). With his response, Jesus was also giving us four characteristics of salvation that we can trust and believe in.

    Throughout the Bible we see an important truth illustrated over and over: The Holy Spirit releases his power the moment you take a step of faith. When Joshua was faced with an impassible barrier, the floodwaters of the Jordan River receded only after the leaders stepped into the rushing current in obedience and faith. Obedience unlocks God’s power.
