If you look into the mirror of God's Word and see someone in need of grace, why would you be impatient with others who share that need?

Where is hope to be found? In six life-altering words, "I will be with you always."

Hope is not a thing, not a location, not a situation, not an experience. Hope is a person and his name is Jesus.

Today you can give way to fear producing "What ifs...?" or rest in the sovereign care of your wise and gracious Savior King.

If you underestimate the power of remaining sin, you'll under value your need for forgiving, rescuing, transforming grace.

By yourself you don't have what it takes to live in this broken world, that's why God hasn't left you to yourself.

Corporate worship is designed to expose your false hope and introduce you to the true hope that is Jesus.

Being a sinner means you have the perverse ability to look at what God says is horrible and see something attractive-for this there's grace.
