The Prodigal Father: God’s Extravagant Love

Jesus told a remarkable story found in Luke 15:11ff about man with two sons. Even if you’ve done so many times in your life, go read it and then come back. I’ll just wait here. So, what did you think? It’s not only one of the most memorable parables Jesus ever told, but it may Continue Reading…

Self-Consciousness Robs You of Rest

His thoughts are often relevant to a lot of us—personally and decisively relevant more often than not!

Christ Is More Than Savior And Lord

Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life” (Jn. 16:6). But, many misinterpret the word “life” as “a way” of life because it seems unusual. How can a person be my life?

Why the Angels Still Praise Him

When God created the angels, He created Lucifer as a cut above the rest. He’s described before he fell as having the “seal of perfection,” being “perfect in beauty” and “full of wisdom” (Ezekiel 28:12). Either stunning beauty or astounding wisdom can become curses if misused. When someone has both, he becomes exponentially more vulnerable Continue Reading…

Did he say He has come? She made her way quickly to where Simeon1 was standing with the baby in his arms, and immediately she knew. “Oh, Continue Reading…
