A Proverbs 3:6 State of Mind

As a follower of Christ, I have often wondered what it looks like to worship Christ with all that I am. One of the things that I have learned through asking questions like this is it’s all about having the right mindset. What is the right mindset in this instance? One that is directly linked to scripture.

I Need Advice

We often hear people ask, “What is the best advice you’ve ever been given?” You’ve likely been given great advice that has impacted your life. However, the advice you’ve been given might not be the same advice you would give someone else. If you could give someone a piece of advice, what would it be? I went around campus and asked MBU students this question.

Seeking Christ Amidst Chaos

Let’s face it, 2020 and the first few months of 2021 have been nothing short of chaotic. Between a worldwide pandemic, civil issues resurfacing and natural disasters taking control of every corner of the globe, it can be extremely challenging to find moments of peace. Read about how these students at Missouri Baptist University turn to Jesus for a sense of peace amidst chaos and the unknown.

Easter Sunday Reminds Us of Blessings in All Situations

As Easter Sunday is upon us, we are able to reflect back on one of the most challenging years in the history of our nation. For some of us, Easter Sunday might be a time of questioning His presence during the difficult challenges of this past year. And our God is certainly big enough to answer all of life’s questions. For others, Easter Sunday is a time of reassurance that an almighty God sent his son to die on the cross for our sins, and rise from the grave to give us all hope for a future. So the question we are asking our journalism students to blog about today is: In this particularly challenging year, what does Easter mean to you? These blogs are Part 2 of a two-part series. Click here to read Part 1 blogs.

Assembling in the traditional church setting has been especially difficult during this past year, and at times completely impossible, but this weekend we are reminded that the body of Christ is not about buildings, it is about Christians recognizing and giving thanks for Jesus’ ultimate sacrifice for a fallen world.        Photo by Jack Gienke

Does Easter Mean Even More This Year?

As Easter Sunday approaches we are able to reflect back on one of the most challenging years in the history of our nation. For some of us, Easter Sunday might be a time of questioning His presence during the unprecedented challenges of this past year. And that is understandable. Our God is big enough to answer all of life’s difficult questions. For others, Easter Sunday is a time of reassurance that an almighty God sent his son to die on the cross for our sins, and rise from the grave to give us all hope for a future. So the question we are asking our journalism students to blog about today is: In this particularly challenging year, what does Easter mean to you? These blogs are Part 1 of a two-part series.

Easter is a time of reflection and appreciation for the sacrifice Jesus Christ made for us on the cross.
