The Holy Spirit and Prayer (6/4)

“The Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words” (Romans 8:26).

Assuredly, Jesus could have carried out this mission alone, but He eagerly desired for the CHURCH to participate in...

Today We Begin (5/26)

For me, the isolation has stripped away the veneer of insecurities. Fundamentals rediscovered, and in some cases actually discovered.

Christians United (4/21)

“The community of believers was of one heart and mind” (Acts 4:32). This description of the earliest Church from the Acts of the Apostles powerfully conveys the reverence, care and love of the first Christians.
