Life – Take My Life

Many of us want something in our life that we can’t get by our own skill, power or ability. We can’t get it by our finances or by our wisdom. No, what we want is what only God can give and to this point in our lives He hasn’t provided it for us. Scriptures Isaiah 30:13; 40:30-31;...

Covalent Bond

This week Paul adds another component of our God-given DNA as Christians and as the church—acceptance. We all know people who have had a bad experience in the church and with Christians in general. Often non-believers feel they are expected to change in order to be accepted....

Amplification

Paul commands Christians to get along with each other. He knows that the church will disintegrate if forgiveness is not the #1 commodity. It is core to the gospel and it is what the church is all about. We invite others into a relationship with God because of what Jesus did for...
