What an amazing privilege to be a child of God! Because of Jesus, we can be adopted into God’s family (Eph. 1:5). As such, we are “heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him” (Rom. 8:17). In 1 John, the Holy Spirit has a ... Read More »

Ten Thousand Talents

UnmercifulServant

Go up to a land flowing with milk and honey; for I will not go up in your midst, lest I consume you on the way, for you are a stiff-necked people (Exo. 33:3). Moses has spent the last forty years doing something that he didn’t want to do. In ... Read More »

Blessed Are the Pure in Heart

Heart-Pure

In the late 1800’s, Davison and Fillmore penned the words to an old song that we sometimes sing in worship: Purer in heart, O God, Help me to be; May I devote my life Wholly to Thee; Watch Thou my wayward feet, Guide me with counsel sweet; Purer in heart, ... Read More »
