The love of truth

“Only the love of truth will keep us from the abuse of truth” – Vince Vitali.

If God is unlimited, and He is, then it would be foolish to limit Him with either our ignorance or even unbelief. Just because we cannot see some things, does not mean that they don’t exist.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom

Ever wondered what part you and I are to play in growing strong in the Lord? Sure you probably have. Maybe you’ve even heard a few sermons on how to grow spiritually, and yet there always seems more.

What’s in a name?

Peter was called Simon before he encountered the transformative love of Jesus. This rugged fisherman could hear from God. He dropped all and followed Jesus at a single word. Yet he was somewhat impetuous. Perhaps he was just like someone you know in the faith. One day they’re up and then the next they’re down. Maybe that one is you … or me.

The exchange: strength for weakness

The exchange: strength for weakness

When you contrast God’s strength with man’s weakness, you get a glimpse of why God set in motion a series of covenants to redeem and restore us to the former glory He intended for us.

I know God is able but is He willing in my case?
