How Not to Read the Bible

How Not to Read the Bible

Pastor Resources · How Not To Read The Bible   I’ve been reading the Bible almost every day for decades. I firmly believe that any listening and reading of Scripture is better than none at all, but I do think that some of the ways I’ve read the Bible have ended...

For the Love of Jesus

For the Love of Jesus

Why do we serve? Why do we give of ourselves, day in, day out, week after week? We all know the answer: because of love. Right. But what is the object of our love? Whom or what do we love in order to allow ourselves to be given? Once again, the answer seems obvious:...
