The gods were personified sources of power that reflected the breadth of humanity, including its best and more often its worst attributes.
While the context of our spiritual formation is different, Jesus presents the same basic opportunities and questions to all of us.
God created human beings with an inherent passion to worship and serve. Therefore, we will worship and serve someone or something—and this is where habitual sin comes in.
Do you hunger for more—more from life, more from yourself, more from God?
Christians can choose to receive what God offers, so that there can be in our lives reflections of the very nature of God.
Sometimes God grants victory over our enemies, but our task is to have faith even if his will is different for us.
We live and produce divine fruit only because of our attachment to him, but it is through us that his fruit is picked by the world.
Sin may satisfy temporal desires, but virtue satisfies our deeply felt divine longings.
As we grow, we should be able to handle more significant challenges. And as we face them, we should find it easier and easier to overcome them.
Jesus asked that God would glorify him in the last hour so that he could finish his task of glorifying God on earth by completing the work God had given him.
