A Gift Swap with God

“And when (the wise men)… saw the young Child…(they) fell down and worshiped Him. And when they had opened their treasures, they presented gifts to Him: gold, frankincense, and myrrh.” -Matthew 2:11 Alright, I’m sure all of us have some very similar Christmas traditions.

The Place Inside

It’s a depressing and sober reality how far the world has fallen away from God. They mock Him, laugh at Him, curse Him- thinking how secure they are since He hasn’t done anything to them for their sin. Rather similar to the story of Noah, isn’t it? No, God’s not going to wipe out theContinue reading “The Place Inside”

God is in the Fire

If you are going through some hard times, I want you to remember Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego in the fiery furnace. They didn’t burn, God saved them. Keep going brothers and sisters. When you think all of hell is after you, remember who has you, and who you belong too! God has you, just trustContinue reading “God is in the Fire”
