The Word of God

This may be an old fashioned notion but I believe the Bible is the living Word of God. I believe the Scripture is God’s full revelation to mankind and fully self sufficient for all matters of faith and practice. I believe the Bible is God breathed, fully inspired, and should be the primary way we teach, correct, and train the church of Jesus (2 Timothy 3:16-17).


Within the pages of Scripture I see the nature and character of my unchanging God (Hebrews 13:8). I am reminded that here the Truth that has power to set men free is found. The problem isn’t that God has changed or that His Word has lost its power, its a a deep ignorance or rejection of the Scripture.


Keep it simple saints. Get back to the Scripture. Stop trying to invent new ways of fixing an age old problem. Jesus is still the only One who has power to save.

Your Redemption is Near

Wars and rumors of wars. Famines. Plagues. Pestilence. Earthquakes. The list of things Jesus says will unfold before He comes again are extreme. (Luke 21:7-36) Like the plot line from a horror movie the evil in the world will explode, love will grow cold, and hopelessness will be common. If the story ended there, it would be painfully tragic. Spoiler alert: the story doesn’t end here.


Ultimately just as Jesus overcame death and the grave, we will also know ultimate victory through faith in Him. Today if the news seems bleak, rejoice because Jesus has overcome the world. (John 16:33)


Here, surrounded by the love of Christ, we can rejoice always. We can pray without ceasing. We can give thanks in all circumstances. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)

Jesus. No other name is given among men by which we must be saved (Acts 4:12).


Jesus. God’s only Son, given as a ransom for our lives out of God’s heart love so we would not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).


Jesus. The way, the truth and the life… the only way back to the Father (John 14:6).


Today my greatest hope is that you (yes you) would know the love and hope found only through faith in Jesus. (Romans 10:9) No matter where you’ve been, what you’ve done, or what you are facing Jesus died for you (Romans 5:8). You can begin your whole life again today… if you’d only come (Matthew 11:28).
