Just One Job …

Four Tools in God’s hand… A storm, a fish, a plant and a worm. Been meditating gently on Jonah recently. I think many of us can identify with a man who tries to run away from something he feels is hard for him to do. God clearly called Jonah to preach a sermon of impending…

Walking through Fire

Daniel chapter 3 gives us an incredible account of three men who found themselves in the middle of an inferno. It was a political inferno, instigated by those who hated Jews.

Drowning…

There are times when a picture definitely speaks a thousand words. This picture, called “What Jesus Did for Me” by Yongkim Kim, is painted from the perspective of someone drowning, and looking up to see Jesus reaching out His hand. By faith, and an understanding of Matthew 14:22-33, we know that even though Peter tried…
