God Is Up to Something

God Is Up to Something

Sometimes it seems that God is distant from his people and their pain. It can seem as if he does not care, that he has abandoned us, and left us to suffer in our misery. Hannah’s prayer for a son, and her subsequent prayer of thanksgiving, urge God’s people to wait on the Lord with […]

Peace that Surpasses All Understanding

Peace that Surpasses All Understanding

As a fruit of the Spirit, peace is something that believers who are walking by the Spirit should exhibit.

Pray by Faith

Pray by Faith

Although prayer is more than making requests to God, it certainly is not less than that. God wants us to ask him to do things on our behalf, and no one modeled this better than Jesus. His petition before God in the Garden of Gethsemane is an example to all of his disciples of the […]

A Prayer for the Believers

A Prayer for the Believers

Because God has blessed his people with every spiritual blessing, believers should pray all the more fervently for one another. We should pray for God to fill us  with his Spirit and to make us aware of the grace he has already given to us. By seeking God together and submitting to Christ, the church […]

God’s Mystery Made Known

God's Mystery Made Known

The Apostle Paul wrote the letter of Ephesians in order to make known to believers in Jesus God’s eternal plan. This plan was a mystery, hidden from generation after generation until God made it known to his apostles and prophets. Now that God has revealed his great plan for the world, he wants his people […]
