Shhh! It’s a secret!
Jesus was all about love. Love yourself, love your neighbor, take care of widows and orphans. And just like with every edict God gave, people took it to the extreme. In the temple, metal bell-like receptacles were set up to receive the alms and offerings used to support the temple and help the poor. The […]
What does “good” really mean?
How often have we heard Romans 8:28 thrown around as a verse that promises that God will work out everything just like people want? Or that it applies to everyone?The problem is, Paul wrote neither of those things. “God will cause everything to work together for the good…” The reality is, we don’t always know […]
Don’t live under siege!
“The faithful love of the Lord never ends! His mercies never cease.

These words were written at the time when Israel […]

Believers. Those who have chosen to be in a salvation relationship with Him. I confess. I do not understand this concept, […]
To be great, start serving.
It’s counterintuitive. It doesn’t make sense. The ones with true power serve no one, but are served, right? Not according to Jesus. In His kingdom, everything we know is turned upside down. The powerful are weak. The weak are powerful. Not in the way that the weak take over through revolution, though. It’s just the […]
