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 more I read and study the Bible the more I find the love of God to be beyond imagination.

“Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth,” John 17:17.  The gospel of John lays a heavy emphasis upon “truth,” and is one of the most important themes that runs throughout the book. In John 6:28-29 we read, “Then they asked Him, ‘What must we do to do the works God requires?’ Jesus answered, […]

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 […]
