Amazing Directives

Saul’s Conversion Meanwhile, Saul was still breathing out murderous threats against the Lord’s disciples. He went to the high priest and asked him for letters to the synagogues in Damascus, so that if he found any there who belonged to the Way, whether men or women, he might take them as prisoners to Jerusalem. As he neared Damascus on hisContinue reading “Amazing Directives”

His Amazing Covenant

I’m currently doing two different Bible studies – one that focuses on 1 & 2 Kings and another that accounts Jesus’ last words in John.  What strikes me about both is that as God’s children, we always seem to fail.  We fail and we fail and we fail, yet He forgives and forgives and forgives.  How amazing isContinue reading “His Amazing Covenant”

Rich Man, Poor Man

Listen, Obey, Receive

What has God asked you to do that, well to be honest, sounds a bit uncomfortable, odd, or just downright crazy?.The Bible is a testament to ordinary people doing extraordinary acts in God’s name. Take Joshua for example. He had to tell his entire army to march around Jericho once a day for six daysContinue reading “Listen, Obey, Receive”
