Then the family heads of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests and Levites—everyone whose heart God had…

Do Not Forget God’s Grace

Do Not Forget God’s Grace

No matter what is going on in your life, do not forget God’s grace. Why you ask. Because God’s grace is not just for pardon, it is also to empower you for joyful living.

Rest Is Holy

Rest Is Holy

July is here and it is time to rest. Sometimes it is hard to let go or we might even feel guilty about vacationing. But guess what? Rest is holy. How do I know this? Actually, rest is the first thing in the Bible that God makes holy. See for yourself!

Passionate Pursuit of God

Passionate Pursuit of God

This morning I was reminded of a connection between the Old Testament and New Testament. You see, we are told to seek God as we would for a hidden treasure. This is not just some casual browsing, don’t you agree? This is an intentional and passionate pursuit of God like our life would depend on it.
