In the Beginning Was the Word

John begins his story of Jesus in a very unique way. He starts at the VERY beginning. Not the beginning of Jesus’ life on earth, but the beginning of time itself! Through his introduction, we see Jesus in a way that is hard to forget!

The Mother of the Son of God

Being a mom is not easy. There are times when the work can be exhausting and difficult. Even when your son is the Son of God. But God is always faithful and will sustain you through this important role. Through Mary, we can learn several different ways God sustains us.

Building Up Together

Today we finish our study of 1 Corinthians by looking at Paul’s final greetings to the Corinthian church family. Through his greetings, we see an amazing aspect of how people within the church, not just the shepherds, are actively working to help build up the church.


In today’s passage, Paul talks about three shepherds who care for the Corinthian church family. From his instructions we can see a lot about the care of the shepherds for the church, and also the care of the church for their shepherds.

How to Love Others Well

What can we do to love others more effectively? How can what you know about yourself and about the people you want to show love to help you show them love better?

Changed in a Moment

One day, there will come a moment in which everything changes. For all who have trusted Jesus, the change that happens in this moment will define the beginning of their eternity. It will also be the moment that will define the inevitable defeat of death.

In the Image of Jesus

Today, we continue to look at what our resurrection bodies will be like. In the same way that our current bodies are made in the image of Adam, our resurrection bodies will be made in the image of Jesus.
