The Character of God – Part 2

God is Love God’s love manifested as hesed which means His abiding loyalty to His covenant and covenantal relationships. Hesed is a steadfast, rock-solid faithfulness that endures to eternity. A love that is richer and deeper than anything we can conceive. “Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love (hesed) for you will not be…

We were created to flourish in life. God established His priority at the beginning of creation and made it clear we were to…

She called on the prophet Elijah who was staying with them during the drought. Elijah took the boy to his room, stretched himself out on the boy three times and…

Living Purposefully: Christ In You Is The Hope Of God’s Glory!

God never intended His creation to suffer the effects of sin, sickness or death. God created man in His own image, breathed life into him, and man became a living soul. One man’s disobedience (sin) marred God’s original purpose for creation. It was never supposed to be this way.  Sin is seldom mentioned in many church services today for fear…
