God’s great gift to us is to not leave us in our sin but to give us the opportunity to repent and turn back to Him.
The Holy Spirit gives Life
The Holy Spirit and the Words of Jesus gives us life. They are a reason to be thankful and hopeful. No one is beyond God’s reach.
The Source of our Blessings
Genesis 41:41-57 shows that dealing with success can be just as great a problem as dealing with trials and difficulties. The culture we live in seeks to pressure us to compromise. We need to remember that God is the source of all our blessings.
Being Drawn in by God
Dear Friends, John 6:41-60 is about the unbelief of the Jews. Last week, the crowds sought Jesus for the wrong reasons – for physical food and to make Him a political leader – but the reason the Jewish leaders reject Jesus is different. They understand His claims that He has come from God and they […]
Give Glory to God
Dear Friends, In Genesis 41:1-40, we see that, after a long wait of 11 years, the dreams from Genesis 37 stating that Joseph would be a leader and have prominence are beginning to come to fruition. It is a reminder of the need to be patient in regard to God’s timing. One of the highlights […]
