Six Words That Make All the Difference!

One doesn’t have to say much to say a lot, and in no case is this more true than of God Himself! The apostle Paul suffered from a “thorn” in the flesh (2 Corinthians 12:7). Scripture does not tell us precisely what Paul’s “thorn” was; however it was something Paul repeatedly pleaded with God to remove (verse 8). The reserve used in God’s word can be just as beautiful sometimes as what the Bible reveals. By not telling us exactly…

Remembering How to Walk

Anything one adds to Jesus and His gospel subtracts from their beauty, sufficiency and preeminence. In other words, adding to Jesus and the gospel is really bad math!
