Discern, Heed, Obey

Hebrews 5:14 But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment changed by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.

Welcoming those from the other side of the table

Romans 5:7 Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God. We live in a world divided right now. Everything seems to be right-wing or left-wing.

A Prayer for the Nation and other

Lord, You see the craziness that is going on in this nation. We need a miracle that can only come from You. I know that You are the one who extends authority. I know that You love all people because You are love. I know that You bless those who bless Israel. I know that... Continue Reading →

His Kingdom is Near

“Whatever city you enter and they receive you, eat what is set before you; and heal those in it who are sick, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you.’” Luke‬ ‭10:8-9‬ ‭‬‬ I have often been distracted by hospitality.
