Your Unique Position

As we move towards the end of Romans we see a shift in tone. Until now we have been with Paul as he travels around, telling people about Jesus, and starting or building up churches. If this was a movie, we would cue dramatic music. Something ominous is coming. We join Paul in a room... Continue Reading →

Choose Life, Not Fear and Anxiety

God promises to take our fears, cares, worries and to give us comfort if we are willing to leave them at His feet! It might not change the outcome - but all your worry, anxiety and scheming won’t do that either.
