by Ed Newton on June 28th, 2020
When they had finished eating, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” “Yes, Lord,” he said, “you know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Feed my lambs.” (John 21:15) Every time I read the story of Peter denying Jesus, the one thing that always sticks out to me is that Peter’s story doesn’t end with his denial. Instead, Jesus gives Peter another chance, and Pete...  Read More

The Good In The Bad
by Ed Newton on June 27th, 2020
Who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works. (Titus 2:4) Based upon what we know about ourselves and what we know we’ve done, many of us wouldn’t choose ourselves for the position of representing Christ. Think about some of the stuff you’ve done, the mistakes you’ve made. You wouldn’t choose your...  Read More

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. (1 Peter 1:3) When we feel burdened by our sin, when we are overwhelmed with guilt and shame from our mistakes, it can be so easy to fall into feeling hopeless.

Life Beyond Mistakes
by Ed Newton on June 12th, 2020
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13) There is a story of a tourist who was visiting a famous landmark on the ocean.

A New Perspective On Failure
by Ed Newton on June 3rd, 2020
For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again. (Proverbs 24:16) We all make mistakes. We’ve missed the mark at one time or another.

But we all make mistakes, nonetheless.   It doesn’t matter ...  Read More
