The book of Judges may not be the first book we turn to when we desire important and applicable Biblical truths for our lives today. But boy, what a mistake! In this message, which covers the first two chapters of Judges, we are reminded of the importance of knowing, obeying, and sharing His Word.

It has been said that the sovereignty of God (the fact that God is in control) is one of the most comforting doctrines to the Christian. Spurgeon said if we would only remember that He is sovereign, a “holy calm” would come over our minds. I realized not only would I experience His calm but also His comfort…and so much more.I began to scribble down the affects upon my heart, my mind, my...
Patience of God
Patience is something we probably don't think much about until it's lost - until WE "lose" our patience - or until others "lose" theirs. Otherwise, we probably don't go around admiring or thinking about this quality all that much. But as we will see with this lesson, it is a quality that each and every one of us must be so very grateful for and something that we must desire to grow in. Why?...

Grace of God
What thoughts come to mind when you hear the words "the grace of God?" Perhaps it is the word "undeserving." Maybe you begin to hum the tune of "Amazing Grace."

One Sunday after church, more than 20 years ago, I asked for prayer. I don’t remember what I said, but the pastor replied, “You need to know your identity in Christ.” He called over his wife, asked me to share with her what I had just shared with him, and she also said, “You need to know your identity in Christ.” I didn’t know what that meant. It was the first time I had heard those words. That...

(Watch video here.) More than 30 years ago, my family began one of the hardest journeys, if not THE hardest journey, we’ve ever faced: my diagnosis of anorexia nervosa and the subsequent years-long road to recovery to find the hope, healing, and harmony I have shared about in my testimony. Today I am so grateful to share my mom’s perspective. Any parent or loved one who feels alone,...
