Every person on earth needs to know they matter … that they mean something to someone and that they are valuable. The problem is when people don't get a good start in life, they often waste their lives searching for self-worth in all the wrong places.
In the world, people base their value and importance on what they do, how much education they have, who they know, what kind of clothes they wear, how they look, their job title, and the list goes on. But when worldly standards determine your sense of self-worth, you'll always be striving to please people and it will derail you from your God-given destiny.
The only way to find true security and have a healthy self-esteem is by knowing and experiencing the love of God. more >>
WASHINGTON – Multi-Dove award nominee Christine D'Clario hit the stage last Saturday representing the Latino community at Together 2016, and said she believes everyone can see past racial differences if they focus on Jesus.
D'Clario is of Italian, German, Irish, Puerto Rican, and Dominican descent. She believes her multi-ethnic background gives her a wide perspective and helps her understand the racial conflicts currently happening in America.
"I know what it is to be in a blended community and I know what it is to be marginalized for not fitting in perfectly with one area or the other. But what I've learned from that is to find the commonalities and to try and focus on what unites us more," D'Clario told The Christian Post during a Q&A session. more >>
The differences among Christians are innumerable. The Church is made up of all types of people with all kinds of personalities, wirings, giftings, strengths, and weaknesses. However, we all, without exception, have two things in common:
1. we long to know Jesus more deeply
2. we oh-so-easily drift away from him. more >>
I'm not referring to all churches collectively in this article, but to the large majority who have drifted away from God. The present condition of the church leaves one to wonder if the lack of the fear of the Lord is contributing to her spiritually dead condition.
With rapid fire changes within a culture saturated by political correctness and relativism, we are inclined to ask if there is any hope for America. If we continue down this slippery slope, there is little hope. Apart from a national spiritual awakening, it will be difficult to turn the Titanic around — the vessel has been struck; what's inside is spilling out. But if God brings revival ... if we once again set our hearts and minds on Him ... there is tremendous hope.
In churches across America, crowd appeal and pleasing the masses tends to be the goal rather than calling out destructive lifestyles, which can result in revival and renewal. more >>
Republican presidential hopeful Donald J. Trump recently spoke the praises of famed Christian quarterback and Nathan Fillion lookalike contest winner Tim Tebow.
The Donald commended the football star and philanthropist, who recently gained headlines for carrying 500 pounds of medical supplies across the Amazon to benefit a struggling orphanage.
"Let me tell you, I love Tim Tebow. Tebow is really a guy, I mean a really great guy. Ever been around him? I have. And you know what? He's great," said Trump. more >>
WASHINGTON — Contemporary Christian singer Lauren Daigle urged millennials to combat fear and hatred with love in a message at Together 2016 at the National Mall on Saturday, and hopes they left feeling empowered to seek God's wisdom wherever their mission field is: at school, work and in their communities.
"The word empower is something that kept coming up in my heart," Daigle told The Christian Post during a Q&A on Saturday. "If we show people that fear isn't actually the place that we have to surrender to, fear isn't actually the thing that we have to answer to, but instead it's going in and loving people."
"It's going into the places that are dangerous and saying, 'OK God, I'm going to partner with you in this mission to go after that person who can potentially harm me.' Or to go after the homeless and say, 'I'm going to love you,'" Daigle shared. more >>
