The Way of Love Read 1 John 4:7-21. Everyone seems to agree that we need more of love in our world today.

Assurance in Christ Read Romans 8:31-39. Nowadays, Christmas is almost synonymous with the practice of gift-giving, which is an opportunity to express our love and appreciation for another.

Jesus, the Risen Messiah Read John 20:1-31. We all like a happy ending in the stories that we read or movies that we watch.

A Beacon of Great Hope Read Isaiah 9:1-7. Promises are wonderful things. Do you get excited when you think of something a friend or loved one has promised you?

Singing a New Song to God Read Psalm 144 In our passage today, we get a glimpse into the thought life of David. Not only was David a fierce warrior and king, he was also a prolific poet and songwriter. Never let it be said that true masculinity is merely about physical strength and not […]
