That Day!

“However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son Himself. Only the Father knows.” (Matthew 24:36 NLT) In 2023, on average, more than 330,000 people die every day. Of those nearly 70% are by accidents. What does that tell us? It tellsContinue reading “That Day!”

Our Faith Journey (Part 2)

Holy for Heaven

“And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all He has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice – the kind He will find acceptable.

The Paths of Righteousness

“And when He comes, He will convict the world of its sin, and of God’s righteousness, and of the coming judgment.

You Can’t Teach Character

“The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and He sustains everything by the mighty power of His command.

Failure and Fullness

“From His abundance we have all received one gracious blessing after another.” (John 1:16 NLT) Failure, like so many areas and activities of our lives, is relative.

Our Former Ignorance
