My Latest Article on Bible Basics
Did Jesus ever say the exact words “I am God”? No. Did He say it in every other way possible? Yes. Jesus made such a variety of claims to deity that there can be no doubt as to what he meant.
From my heart to yours
For me it is a week of heartbreaking news, one friend gravely injured, another desperately fighting cancer. I am so grateful to have access to the throne of grace in prayer, and the confidence that my God has my friends in the palm of His hand. There’s no better place to be, whether well or ill, whole or wounded. I have joy also, in that my youngest son turns 21 today. My babies are grown, and walking in His ways. I pray you are walking and resting in His love and glory also.
Serving our sweet Savior,
