Christianity is far and away superior to all other supposed religions, and I make no apology for saying so. Why? All other religions put confidence in the flesh. Paul used that phrase in Philippians 3:3 to distinguish Christianity from other beliefs, except he added one little word, the word “no.” Why is Christianity superior to all other religions? Here it is: We . . . put no confidence in the flesh. This is not only a powerful truth for apologetics; it is also a powerful truth that will set you free from the anxiety of both getting right with God and staying right with God. Find rest and refreshment right now.

Jesus worked in memorable ways. Jesus spoke in memorable ways. Jesus raised up memorable men. Jesus brought into being memorable churches. Yet, Jesus did not specifically ask to be remembered by His miracles, His words, His disciples or the churches which He instituted. Do you know how Jesus specifically asked to be remembered? You may be surprised, but you may also be inspired.
What are principles that guide your life? Jacob had to learn the hard way that God’s guiding principles had to be chiseled into his head and heart. The chiseling, as you may imagine, did not come instantaneously but required years of training and struggle. The amazing thing is not so much that Jacob stayed the course but that God stayed the course with him. If your life is a train-wreck, stay the course, and you will discover that God will stay the course with you to the end.
As many as the promises of God are, in Him they are yes; therefore through Him also is our Amen to the glory of God through us. Jacob made this discovery in the worst time of his life. So can you.
