    Faith-Fueled Care

    When I was a young child, my dad’s mother fell ill and came to live with our family. “Gran” had diabetes and was too weak to walk. Because we lived in a flat high up in a building with no lift, my father carried her up and down the stairs. Mum prepared special meals for her, bathed her, cut her nails and gave her regular insulin injections.

    Believing God

    A common belief about God is that if we can do enough ‘good’ things, we earn His favour. Naturally, the next question becomes: How much is enough? When can we be sure we’ve done enough good things? Well, we can’t! But thankfully, such a concept isn’t found in the Bible. Salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ (see Ephesians 2:8-9).

    The Never-forsaking God

    He Himself has said, ’I will never leave you nor forsake you’ —Hebrews 13:5

    Childlike Faith

    Every Sunday morning in the foyer, our eyes meet. Her eyes are full of joy, twinkling. Immediately she breaks into song, loudly singing my name, “Mar-le-na!” She ambles over, we hug, and I say, “It is so good to see you.” She always responds with, “It is good to be seen.” And then I remind her, “You know I love you.” And she trustingly offers, “I know you do.” My dear friend, who is seventy-five and dealing with progressing dementia, remains full of the joy of the Lord. She’s childlike in her trust of Jesus and those who love Him.

    The Way to Permanent Faith

    Indeed the hour is coming…that you will be scattered… —John 16:32

    Jesus was not rebuking the disciples in this passage. Their faith was real, but it was disordered and unfocused, and was not at work in the important realities of life. The disciples were scattered to their own concerns and they had interests apart from Jesus Christ. After we have the…

    Everyone Likes A Winner

    Everyone likes a winner. And when the Jews imagined the Messiah, they imagined a conquering king, not a crucified criminal. But today on Discover the Word, we’ll discuss how Jesus’s “kingdom” is different than we might imagine. It’s a kingdom the thief being crucified on the cross next to Jesus wanted in on! Join the […]
