"But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." Matthew 6:33 NIV
Thoughts for Today
Many people have the perception that church people are well-intentioned but just a shade south of normal - that Christians are not real people. This occasionally presents roadblocks to some who would like to follow Christ.
Perhaps you feel as though you are missing something in your life. You may be considering visiting a church. Or maybe you go to church every Sunday but are wondering . . . Am I a real Christian? Why do I feel so empty inside?
God, I have so many questions. Are you real? Are the Christians I see real? Can Jesus make a difference in my life? Please help me find answers . . .
These thoughts were drawn from …
Authentic Living in an Artificial World by Dr. Mike Chapman. This 45-minute group study gives understanding about what it means to be real. The facilitator's guide includes reproducible group member study sheets and an audio CD designed to help facilitators prepare for each session. Note: This curriculum was written especially for small groups, and we encourage people to use it that way. However, it can also be used effectively as a study for individuals or couples.
We hope these devotions are a blessing to you and to others in your life. We are happy to provide them for you at no cost, but thought you might want to consider a donation to help our ministry with the expense involved. You can safely donate through our website. Thank you!
