Advent Day 25: Merry Christmas!

Day 35 – The Graduation Speech

Today we read Paul’s final benediction to the somewhat unpredictable Corinthian church. His closing remarks in 2 Cor. 13:11-14 remind me of ones you might hear at a graduation ceremony. Poignant. Succinct. Meaningful. If you recall over the past few chapters, Paul has addressed…

Day 33 – He Was Crucified in Weakness, but Lives by the Power of God

No Need to Worry: God is in Control

There come times I need to be reminded that God is sovereign. He’s in control. Of all things. From the beginning to the end. He is working all things together for the good of those who love Him. He has a plan. He has…

Welcome, Holy Week.

He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus. Rev 22:20 Yesterday was Palm Sunday…a day to welcome the coming of Jesus into our own personal city, our heart. And if you remember the story found in…
