Have you ever had the occasion to suddenly see a piece of scripture in a totally new way that speaks to your current situation? I had one of those moments this morning.   Last Sunday one of our lessons was from 2 Kings 5:1-14. This is the story about the healing of Naaman. Here is a brief summary of the account: Naaman is the commander of the army of Syria and is a great man in the eyes of his king. Naaman has ... More
The church exists for nothing else but to draw men into Christ, to make them little Christs.  If they are not doing that, all the cahtedrals, clergy, missions, even the Bible itself, are simply a waste of time.  God became man for no other purpose.  It is even doubtful, you know, whether the whole universe was created for any other purpose.(C.S.

For years she tried to get Jacob to love her. That was the focus of her life, and she named her first three children ... More

In 1 John 3:1 we read, “How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!” Jesus said to his disciples, “I have called you friends, for everything I learned from my Father I have made known to you” (John 15:15). And Paul prays, “…that love may be the ground into which you sink your roots and ... More
