What the Chosen do with Scars

Do you regret things you have said or done? I have memories that sometimes I wish I could erase. We all have! Regret isn’t merely an outcome of consequences.

Share the Ultimate Love – No Other Gospel

How many times do we want to share the LORD with other people and have no clue what to say or how?  There are so many different instructional books or recommendations on how to do this (most of them containing very good strategies).   I would like to suggest that the Word of God spoken byContinue reading “Share the Ultimate Love – No Other Gospel”

That Glorious Day – Romans 5 – Assurance

Ever notice that we often need a contrast to recognize something remarkable?  Good things can be taken for granted, or the idea of something potentially better can diminish the value of something good that is already in our possession.  How does anyone know what is good unless they know what is bad?  One could beContinue reading “That Glorious Day – Romans 5 – Assurance”

Guaranteed Security Within the Boundaries

For years I enjoyed an unexceptional faith.  The kind that believes in Jesus for Salvation as a form of fire insurance.
