Grace Is Straightforward

Grace Is Straightforward

Grace is straightforward. It’s uncomplicated. It’s plain-sailing. Why then do we make it complicated? Difficult to understand? Demanding? Because grace is a sure thing for all who believe in Jesus. It is a gift from God for all who welcome Jesus. God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him won’t perish but will have eternal life. (John 3:16, CEB) God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you…

Called to Fulfilling Lives

“What is it that you want? Do you want an easy life? Or do you want what’s best for you? Do you want to fit in with the crowd?

Apart from God We Are Lost

Apart from God We Are Lost

Apart from God we are nothing. Even if we’d like to think otherwise. Apart from God we don’t even know who we really are. Apart from God we are completely and utterly lost. Blaise Pascal has said: “Not only do we not know God except through Jesus Christ; We do not even know ourselves except through Jesus Christ.” You were lost sheep with no idea who you were or where you were going. Now you’re named and kept for good…
