Since my husband became a believer last year we have often wondered about the law, specifically were we as Christ followers who are saved by grace still under the law and if so all of it or just part. After many months of seeking God’s word on it, His enlightenment and understanding, we both feel […]
This was the text preached on tonight at church, it was exactly what I needed to hear. We have faced much ridicule, judgement and persecution because of our faith, that we strive always to love God with all we are, honoring, serving and praising him in all we do. That means we don't do the … Continue reading It’s By Choice
My study a few days ago included the last couple chapters of Matthew, as always the last conversation Matthew recorded with Jesus strikes me. It is beautiful, inspiring, empowering, and it's a strong command of all we as followers are called to do.

Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will … Continue reading 7 Churches: Exhortations
I must say I have always found the book of Revelation fascinating but this study we are doing has really opened my eyes. We're only on day 8 yet already I am making new connections, seeing things through fresh eyes. For instance the letters to the churches, they have specific elements: the name of the … Continue reading 7 Churches : Commendations
I reread 1 John last night as part of my preparation for our Revelation study and since then the phrase children of God has bounced around in my head. It's a phrase that brings me great joy, but also great awe, and fear that I will let my Father down. I want to be a … Continue reading Children of God
