Romans teaches us that “all things work together for good.” But what is this “good”? Our goals? The “American Dream”? Did Jesus come to tell us that we are Lord or that He is? The Bible doesn’t float around our heads. Biblical history and theology do not revolve around us. We are not the main … Continue reading For Good??
We are more than broken victims of this world needing a Healer and Comforter. We are also rebels who ran away from the King of all that is good; we are slaves to evil. Dead; no pulse. Nothing. Chest compressions. One, two, seventy-two, nothing. We need a miraculous blood transfusion to give us life—not just … Continue reading Blood for the Dead: The Gospel

However, … Continue reading Good Gifts
Your salvation is not a potluck; you bring nothing to the table. It’s a feast that you don’t deserve, and yet, you’re here.
