If It Seems Slow, Wait For It I will take my stand at my watchpost and station myself on the tower, and look out to see what he will say to me, and what I will answer concerning my complaint. And the Lord answered me: ‘Write the vision; make it plain on tablets, so he...

Kept for Jesus Christ

For the past few weeks, I’ve been doing a Bible study on the book of Jude. In this short book towards the end of the Bible, Jude, the brother of Jesus, addresses the recipients of his letter as “those who are called, beloved in God the Father and kept for Jesus Christ.” Throughout the book, the idea of believers being kept by Jesus Christ is repeated often.

The Best Possible Time in History

I recently heard a pastor say “We are living in the best possible time.” On first thought, I was sure he was exaggerating. How could this be the best possible time in history? I turn on the news or scroll on Twitter for less than five minutes and I hear about another war, injustice or humanitarian crisis.
