Freedom In Christ: What does the Cross Mean…

For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect. For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.  […]

Experiencing God: Partaker of Flesh and Blood

“Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, He also Himself likewise took part of the same; that through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil.”  Hebrew 2:14 (KJV) How appropriate that Lenten season 2018 would begin on Valentine’s Day.  What greater love have […]

(Matt. 28:6)  And now, as […]

Lessons I Learned at the Cross

There was book that was popular many years ago entitled, “All I Really Needed to Know I Learned in Kindergarten.”  It contained simple nuggets of wisdom that were garnered from watching how children interacted with each other and the world. It’s been said that life is a giant classroom in which we can experience many […]
