Nehemiah is devastated by the news that God's people are living in an unsafe place (Neh 1). The stories of persecution and lack of safety for his people, moved Nehemiah to give up his place in the king's court and travel to a place of danger, in order to help his people. What kind of move are we willing to make to ensure the safety of those around us?

While there are many things that could and maybe should excite us, there is really only
one passion that truly deserves our full attention. David expresses his great passion for
knowing God in Psalms 63 - How does our passion for God compare?

The Apostle Paul willingly suspended his rights ( Rom 14) when they were preventing others
from receiving the gospel. What rights are we willing to suspend to promote the gospel?

When David finds Saul in a compromising position, he could use the opportunity to kill Saul
and become the new king. David refuses to harm Saul, trusting God to deliver the kingdom
in God's own time. David's patience and mercy reflect God's nature.
Do we trust Godenough to be patient with His timing?

1 Samuel 3 tells the story of a boy whose spiritual mentors and leaders were greatly lacking. The boy,
Samuel, demonstrates the kind of wide-eyed wonder we associate with our earliest faith in Christ.
We might all be able to remember a time when faith was fresh and we were so busy praising God
enjoying the miracle of salvation that we didn't think to find fault with those around us. What
would it take for you to return to that state?

When faced with adversity of any sort, the Christian can take comfort in a God
who declares himself to be God and God alone (Psalm 86:10). The dangers and devices of this
world cannot thwart Him, or even give Him Pause. Read Judges 7 for an example of how God
works. We may still be wary of the sharks but take comfort in the declaration of God.

Genesis 22:1-2 is a passage that tests our faith almost as much the hero of the passage (Abraham). Abraham is asked to do the unthinkable, kill his son for God. Even more difficult to reconcile is the fact that God had also revealed that Abraham's son would one day be the start of a very large family. Somehow Abraham was able to trust God ins spite of the seemingly contradictory ideas and proved himself a man of faith. How do you handle difficult requests from God?
It's important to note the story goes on to say that God did not ask that Abraham kill his son, but that He, God, provided an alternative. In the New Testament, we see God giving His Son and ending the practice sacrifice. In the place of burnt offerings, People of faith are now called on to provide help and comfort to others as a way demonstrating devotion to God.
Each of the cartoons on this site is an expression of a sermon I heard in church. As a cartoonist, my method of understanding complex theological topics is to boil them down to simple images.
These images will never do justice to the sermons from which they are derived, but hopefully, they convey at least one aspect of those sermons to you, the reader.
I hope that you gain some benefit from the cartoons and will reuse them in ways that honor Christ.
