The Word ‘Hebrew’

The word “Hebrew” means to cross over. Abraham crossed over from false gods to the one and only true God. He crossed over physically by leaving his homeland and coming to the Promised Land.

Where Are You From?

A question that often comes up the first time we meet someone is, “Where are you from?” It’s a good question because it may provide context about the person.

I was preparing to write about a shocking verse I just read, but I wanted to use an example from our modern world. This double-shocked me! When it comes to the office of public officials, I could not think of a role where everyone accepts his or her authority?1 Your local police chief? Doubtful. Your …

Good Soil

God’s Vision is Complete

Our Heavenly Father has a vision of you and me, and He has already stored up all we need to live out His plan. He saw our completion, before we saw our beginning.
