The Truth Shall Make You Free

The past few weeks have been especially difficult. Maybe I’ve written those same words several times since January, but this set of symptoms that I have make me long for “normal” days instead of varying degrees of my “new normal.” It gets hard to distinguish between bad days and not-so-bad days. I don’t say this

Why Then the Law?

Why then the law? It was added because of transgressions, until the offspring should come to whom the promise had been made, and it was put in place through angels by an intermediary. Now an intermediary implies more than one, but God is one.Is the law then contrary to the promises of God? Certainly not!

God’s Word is Like a Fire

I’ve heard that the Bible makes little to no sense to the unbeliever. It takes the presence of the Holy Spirit within the reader to bring the words alive. It also takes the urging of the Holy Spirit to prompt us to dig deeper into Scripture. Once we “get it,” God’s word will be like

Converting the Soul

I was reading through several passages last night concerning Scripture and this particular passage really spoke to me. It actually warmed my heart, especially David’s words, “converting the soul.” God’s word does that, doesn’t it? Whatever negative feelings we’re experiencing, when we read Scripture, we’re transformed. Each line is speaking about Scripture: the law, testimony,
