Living in Light of the Gospel

“We walk by faith, not by sight.”
~ 2 Corinthians 5:7 (ESV)

I don’t know if you’re familiar with the Chaotic Life of Lauren or not, but Lauren has been running a series this month on a theme of holiness. I had the privilege of wrapping up the series with a post on living in light of the gospel. If you have been following me for long, you know I love me some Jesus. The gospel is like my favorite thing. I love it more than coffee and books. More than my husband. It’s the one thing I could never live without. This post goes into more detail about how the gospel pours into my life each and every day.

Gospel Living

To give you a little bit of an idea about what’s ahead, gospel living is about more than sharing the gospel with others. It’s about preaching it to yourself each and every day. Every moment of every day. That’s kind of why I started my website Candidly Christian (which is on a short hiatus – more details coming soon). We all need the gospel. We all need Jesus.

This is one of those topics I could write about forever (books coming soon) but for now, I’ll just point you to my post on Lauren’s blog.

If you aren’t familiar with Lauren’s blog, she writes to help other Christian moms manage their busy lives with the hope of making more time for the important things like faith and family. She hosts guests regularly. This is actually the second time I’ve been on her blog (you can find my first post here). Oh, and she also has a Facebook group. So if you are interested in checking that out. Click here.

Lazy Days

“In vain you rise early and stay up late, toiling for food to eat—for he grants sleep to those he loves.” ~ Psalm 127:2 (NIV) Do you ever have one of those days where you just lounge around in your pajamas and do nothing? I’ll admit, those lazy…

What I Hope They Know Before They Go

My son is officially a high schooler. He will be a freshman this coming school year, but I already see it. He’s friends with all the lifeguards at the pool. Random high school guys (and girls) talk to him. He took a practice test…

Standing Against Satan at the Foot of the Cross

“If we are faithless, he remains faithful— for he cannot deny himself.” 2 Timothy 2:13 Satan is the ultimate deceiver. He’s a trickster. Constantly trying to slip into our thoughts and shake our faith. When he succeeds and gets a foothold in our lives, we have…

Stuck in a Rut? 3 Steps to Spiritual Growth

You can live a Christian life, and still have a stagnant relationship with Jesus. I know, because I have been. My faith hasn’t grown this summer. In fact, it might have been a while since it has… I still pray and go to church…

The Beautiful Chaos of Summer

Does anyone else have a love-hate relationship with summer? I love the extra time with my kids, but hate how little I get done around the house. I love spending time outdoors in the sun, but I hate the extreme heat. I love the…

Summer Schedules & Jesus

Does anyone else have trouble holding down a routine during the summer? During the school year, my schedule is set. I get up, get my family ready to go. Kiss my husband, drop the kids off at school, and then settle in with a…

Let’s Be Real (we all struggle with something)

I was torn up online. I was hurt by people I didn’t know. My attackers called themselves Christians, and were chastising my lack of faith. But it wasn’t a lack of faith at all. It was an honest statement. Probably one all too many…
