I just returned from vacation and realized it has been a long time since I sent out my last post. I woke yesterday morning to the headlines of the worse mass shooting in United States history with over two-hundred and fifty people killed or wounded in the Los Vegas shooting. We live in a world […]

The Marvel Of the Gospel!

“That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture says, Whosoever believeth on him shall […]

faded cross

What was it that actually happened at the cross? What was it that God was accomplishing by having His Son die at Calvary?

I started out writing a different blog this morning but after writing it I felt impressed that I was to write on love instead. I don’t know who this post is for but if you are the one I pray that you are able to trust in God’s love a little more fully from reading […]

As teens we fell in and out of love and felt absolute dejection and pain when that special someone broke up […]

Satan’s big lie is to tell us that God loves us when we are good. The flip side would then have to be that God doesn’t love us when we are bad. God’s love is thus conditional based upon our performance. When bad things happen to us we therefore believe that we have somehow been […]

Sheer Grace and Sheer Mercy!

A number of Christians believe that they need to conform to a series of beliefs or act a certain way before they can become right with God. That is religion in its most negative aspects and quite different from the Gospel. The Gospel teaches us that “ But God demonstrated His own love for us […]

“Have mercy on me, O God, according to thy steadfast love; according to thy abundant mercy blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity; and cleanse me from my sin!” Psalm 51:1-2 Have you ever stopped to think about the marvel we call grace? David was a despicable man and knew from first […]
