Paul tells the Church in Rome that we are “individually members of one another.” In other words, in the local Church, I am part of you and you are part of me. This is the amazing thing. We're part of one another. That’s who we are! This week in Romans Chapter 12, [...]

If we really want to know God deeply and personally, we are going to have to come to the Word of God on His terms. This week in Romans Chapter 11, Paul unfolds the unsearchable and unfathomable wisdom of God in dealing with Israel and the Gentiles, using Israel’s unbelief to harvest [...]

Isn’t it wonderful that we as human beings aren’t required to pull off any heroics to get right with God? We don’t have to go on some great pilgrimage in the Himalayas and set ourselves on some mountaintop to reach the heavens, because our Lord Jesus Christ has brought heaven down to [...]
