The Message of Psalms
The Psalms teach us how to pour our hearts out to God.
God commands us to delight in Him!
We are saved by the grace of God. Nothing we can do ourselves can save us. If we could, we would boast about it and then what would be the purpose of the cross? Why would Jesus have had to suffer and die if I could earn my way to heaven?
Confusing Patience With Approval
Sometimes the Lord does not intervene immediately when we sin. He is patiently waiting for us to confess our sin and turn away from it, choosing His way over our own. But just because He may seem or feel silent does not mean He approves of our sin.

And He has laid out an incredibly beautiful path for us to follow to that victory. We simply have to follow Him.
Wake, O Sleeper!
As a fierce storm rages around us, will we not wake from our sleep and join the battle over the life-changing truth of the gospel?
From Darkness to Light
Are you fighting a battle? Maybe you feel like the darkness is closing in and you need more light to continue. Jesus Christ said He is the light of the world. Reach out to Him to in faith that He would give you what you need to continue!
Are We Really Available to the Lost?
