• In my Father’s house

    Peeling away the layers of insignificant things, I’ve found the most common pursuit of us all.  Ultimately, the main thing is to make it to Heaven.  All discussions of life and living end at Eternal Life.  Next comes our Purpose for life, followed by our Identity in Christ, but the primary still remains; Our Destiny.

    Gen 11:6  The LORD said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.

    God’s Economy has mystified the world for thousands of years.  His providence is beyond our understanding, but the result of His power is written on the pages of history. Follow it with me: Gideon conquers a massive enemy without raising a single sword. His victory is via 300 men with trumpets and torches standing in a circle.  Jesus feeds […]

    Traditions are often dismissed in light of what might be trending.  Modernism now stretches far beyond technological advances.  It has invaded the way in which we remember our past and honor our heritage.  Thanksgiving Day was once a time to recall the goodness of the Lord in our lives.  It was a tradition set forth […]
