Forgiveness Means No Guilt, No Shame, No Regrets

If you’re a follower of Jesus, joy should be a way of life. Why? You’ve been completely forgiven—no guilt, no shame, no remorse, and no regrets. God has wiped them all out. Sounds like a good reason for joy to me.

When You Ask for Something, Believe God Will Answer

In Difficult Times, Character Counts

“Paul said to the centurion and the soldiers, ‘Unless these men stay with the ship, you cannot be saved’” (Acts 27:31 NIV). Life is not fair.
