Again – God is sovereign over all

I was driving home from work today (August 12, 2011) and we were slowing down on the interstate due to traffic. I noticed a broken down vehicle ahead of me on the left (I was in the left lane as well). So as I slowed down near the car I called out, “Do you need […]

What will you be doing when Christ returns?

It seems that a this whole deal with some guy (Camping?) predicting a rapture today has become quite a distraction for many. Will you be found ministering to the lost and equipping the saints? Or will your Lord find your breathing out sarcasm, being sure that your Facebook status is the funniest or most biting?

Luke 23:34 – Forgiveness

What is forgiveness? When Jesus utters this phrase, what is he saying? In other words, what exactly is Jesus asking his father to do? And how does that apply to us? Some would say that because Jesus prayed for those who persecuted him to be forgiven, we should all forgive all offenses against us. Others have said that since God doesn’t forgive everyone, that means we don’t have to either. I’ll try to lead you to an answer to these questions as we develop thoughts surrounding forgiveness.
