Justice for the Sheep Fallen into the Ditch

If we can help a sheep fallen into the ditch, how much more should we help what was created in God’s image? Like Jesus, we are called to proclaim liberty to captives, sight to the blind, and freedom to the oppressed. The Sheep Fallen Into the Ditch “What man is there among you who has…

Bitter-Sweet Goodbyes

Bitter-Sweet Goodbye

We’re all too familiar with God bidding us away from bad things. We struggle with depravity but accept His call with excitement to walk by the Spirit (Galatians 5:16-24). We leap for joy out of darkness into His marvelous light (1 Peter 2:9). But when He says to let go of something good, it’s a bitter-sweet…

What is God's Mercy?

What is God’s Mercy?

We are a mixed up people, wanting justice and mercy at the same time. When a friend suffers at the hands of another, we demand the offender pay for what they did. But when our mistakes surface or we’re caught when we hoped to get away with something, we plead for pardon by the ones…

Forgiven

Who is Forgiven Much Loves Much

Who has seen their need for God’s mercy and grace? If we glimpsed our vast debt to the King and how greatly He’s forgiven us—could we not love Him?

Trust God Daily—He Will Provide

Trust God Daily—He Will Provide
