God’s Triumph – Gave 04-21-2018

God made a covenant with Abraham that if he would leave “confusion and chaos” and follow Him to a place to be announced, Abraham would be blessed. The Hebrews, including Daniel, return to “confusion and chaos” to rediscover the importance of following God. Throughout the learning to follow, God is not absent or aloof but rather repeatedly, God “gave.”

God’s Ultimate Triumph 04-07-2018

When considering the book of Daniel, exploring the culture, era and redemptive history challenges us as readers to consider how the God of the universe would allow his people to be taken captive by “polydemonic” nation such as Babylon. We must seek answers to God’s purpose and what is His “Ultimate Triumph.”

Seventh Day Matters 03-24-2018

In a world where we often demand personal control, God introduced at Creation a concept the demands complete surrender of control. Surrender of control sounds foreign and living it feels outright repulsive. Why would God want, expect, and demand this type of surrender from His prized earthly creation?

Almost Church 03-10-2018

Within the tapestry of human existence, three basic desires – identity, belonging, and purpose – demand answering. God provides Christians truth that requires a rejection of the Satanic lie. This struggle between God (truth) and Satan (deceit) results in the best outcome when one is surrounded by the community we call Church.

Burden or Blessing 03-03-2018

As Christians, we understand the importance of living in accordance with God’s will. Because of our busy lives, we don’t always devote the energy required of us to be “good” in God’s eyes. Today, we’ll take a closer look at the burden of obedience.

Unveiled Eyes 01-27-2018

“Hidden Pictures” was one of my favorite activities in the children’s magazine Highlights. I found it challenging, fun, and exciting. Truly it was the only fun thing to do while waiting to see the doctor. I realize that sometimes in life’s situations the hidden figure is God. And I wonder, how can I see God? Does God’s being there depend on my knowing that God is there, or is God there regardless of me recognizing His presence? I admit that in order for me to “know” I must be willing to see beyond what is before me.
