The Final Word

The Final Word

The book of Galatians is a powerful treatise on the sufficiency of God’s grace to save us apart from the externals of law-keeping. Attempting to keep the law as the way to salvation or even as the means for growing in Christ ends in failure and bondage. Freedom is...

Relationships, Sowing, and Reaping

Exile & Reconciliation

When we left Jacob last week, he was fleeing his brother, whom he had cheated twice through deceit and trickery. On his flight, Jacob received a vision from God, to which he responded with conditional faithfulness. Is there any hope for this guy? This week we will...

What are you thinking?

You see, God’s word teaches us that we can choose what we give mental real estate to. Those thoughts generate our emotions; those emotions fuel our behaviors; our behaviors determine the quality of our soul and even affect our bodily health
