Romans 5 | Faith in Jesus Changes You

Romans 5 | Faith in Jesus Changes You

ROMANS 5:1-5 I seriously think I could’ve spent hours on these five verses. So much is embedded in such a short passage. Paul pretty much summarizes the Christian life in this one little paragraph. But the gist of it that I got today is this: Faith in Jesus changes...
Acts 27 | Trust God’s Plan

Acts 27 | Trust God’s Plan

Paul is still a prisoner. And he is still trying to get to Rome. And this leg of that journey is no easier than any of the others. In fact, it’s pretty dang hard. They are on a ship trying to sail at just about the worst time of year to do so. The wind doesn’t...

Acts 19 | Surrender to Jesus

ACTS 19 This chapter has two very different examples of people trying to do things using Jesus’ name. The first is Paul, and the second is a group of Jewish exorcists. The Lord was doing such amazing things through Paul that even a piece of cloth he had touched could...
