The Glory of the Lord

Our women’s ministry is doing a group Bible study currently based on Beth Moore’s book, Breaking Free. Last week one of the day’s homework focused on God’s glory. I have really enjoyed both Jennifer Kennedy Dean’s and Beth Moore’s teachings on God’s glory. Since this…

Lay Down Your Life

Peter told Jesus the night of His capture and arrest in the Garden of Gethsemane, “I will lay down my life for you.” It strikes me as ironic that Peter was volunteering to do what Jesus was literally about to do not only for him,…

Covered in Blood

Ezekiel 16 is a tragic love story of epic proportions; here is how it starts: “On the day you were born, no one cared about you. Your umbilical cord was not cut and you were never washed, rubbed with salt, and wrapped in cloth. No…

Devotion to Christ

The Bible has some absolutely shocking stories in it—like some of the experiences from the days of the Kings of Israel—and 2 Kings 10:16-17 contains one such shocking encounter: Then Jehu said, “Now, come with me, and see how devoted to the Lord I am.”…
