Devotional "Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for thou art my strength." Psalm 31:4 Our spiritual foes are of the serpent's brood, a and seek to ensnare us by subtlety. The prayer before us supposes the possibility of the believer being caught like a bird. So [...]
Devotional "The bow shall be seen in the cloud." Genesis 9:14 The rainbow, the symbol of the covenant with Noah, is typical of our Lord Jesus, who is the Lord's witness to the people. When may we expect to see the token of the covenant? The rainbow is only to be seen painted [...]
You may never know just how much that phone call, text, or e-mail means to someone going through one of life’s many trials. The ministry of encouragement is something that even the weakest saint can be involved in. It does not take great theological skill or higher education. It is a [...]
