Who looks for a mediocre employee or a job with mediocre benefits? No one I know. But for some reason, we settle for mediocrity in our spiritual life. Is there a single thing in your life that you wish was mediocre? A mediocre tax bill, maybe? Nope. We’d wish for a minimal bill or better …
This year, I'm reading through the New Testament using YouVersion Bible app. And I’ve been under conviction about plenty of faults. But one thing keeps echoing over and over: my lack of faith penalizes me.
I was reading along in my Bible like a good Christian should. Things were exciting until The Book stopped me in my tracks. I’m minding my own business, and Jesus says, “According to your faith be it unto you” (Matthew 9:29).

In the United States, we celebrate our independence as a nation on July 4 each year. That’s only a few days away. But no matter where we live, everyone who knows Jesus Christ can experience true freedom.
Two men walked into town, intent on making purchases for their employer. Both had similar lists: two newspapers, a business magazine, one cold soda and a Snickers bar.
