When Two Plus Two Equals Two Times Two: II

“You will be like one who lies down in the midst of the sea, like one who lies on the top of a mast.” — Proverbs 23:34 (ESV) The last time I was with you I had shared some things that I picked up at two different locations within the same week. It was encouraging […]


Deciding Between what is Right and what is Expedient

Posted on May 2, 2019 by Erin Culleny in Freedom Fighters

We all have family and friends who are very different than we are. Some blow their fuses frequently while others never seem rattled. We can be friends and have convictions which are poles apart, yet be friendly. If you live long enough and become involved in ministry long enough, there will be a time when […]


His Grace is Sufficient

“Much of our inner turmoil and our interpersonal struggles are the direct result of kingdoms in conflict. Sin causes us to live inwardly directed, selfish lives instead of the lives of upward worship and outward love that we were created to live.”  ~ P.D. Tripp Several events have brought to the forefront of my thinking […]


For This Reason…

Posted on April 30, 2019 by Erin Culleny in Freedom Fighters

“For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ” — Ephesians 3:14 The echoes of the unanswerable question, “What were you thinking?” still ring in my mind. This question would come when I was confronted by someone who was confused by an action of ill intent I recently committed. […]


Dying to Self

Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.” – Luke 9:23 I wonder what kind of response Jesus would get today if he shared these words with those of us who call ourselves his followers? Welcome to […]


If it was the Last Thing I said…

Posted on April 26, 2019 by Erin Culleny in Freedom Fighters

It is sort of ironic that I write a devotional most mornings and stand before students to teach college courses; I was never one to say very much growing up. It wasn’t till several people God used in my life and taught me what love is that I understood there was something important to communicate. […]


Is the Resurrection Necessary?

Posted on April 25, 2019 by Erin Culleny in Freedom Fighters

Romans 10:9,10: “If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” I Cor. […]

“And the letters were sent by couriers into all the king’s provinces, to destroy, to kill, and to annihilate all the Jews,” — Esther 3:13a Have you ever felt defeated? When there seems to be a path in front of you that seems impossible to tread? The mixed emotions that come in these situations can […]


The Gift of Criticism

Posted on April 23, 2019 by Erin Culleny in Freedom Fighters

“He who is the most bold and freely expresses himself is always right.” (Hezekiah 3:16) (I love the book of Hezekiah.) What a great gift. I’ve got it and I’ll bet you do too. I refer to criticism. Of course, you must understand, I am not being controversial, I am just stating an opinion. I […]


The Resurrection: What Difference Does It Make?

Posted on April 22, 2019 by Erin Culleny in Freedom Fighters

If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. 1 Corinthians […]
