June 14, 2017

“Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:32 NIV) This is a common saying among many believers and non-believers alike. I’ve used it many times. Though, to be honest, I just thought it sounded good…and spiritual. You know, Jesus said it, so it must mean something. But I […]

What God Enjoys Most (Part II of the Enjoying God Series)

June 7, 2017

In Scripture, we, the church, are described in several different phrases: the body of Christ, the ekklesia, the assembly, fellowship of the Firstborn, and a few others.

I think there is something very essential and valuable missing for many of God’s people in my generation. It is the greatest gift ever given to mankind and something that can be attained by any and all believers in Christ.
