But By The Grace Of God

The Trap For We Who Love Grace

The parable of the Prodigal Sons is one of the most famous in the Bible.

We Are Nothing But Clay

“O Israel, can I not do to you as this potter has done to his clay? As the clay is in the potter’s hand, so are you in my hand.” (Jeremiah 18:6) What are you made of? Clay! Clay has no plans of its own. It has no dreams for glory, not even for service. […]

Resist The Tidal Wave Of Dehumanizing Those You Disagree With

Refuse to treat, speak about, or view any human as the “other.” You can deeply and passionate disagree with them, but remember that they, too, are loved by God. They have fears, wounds, and misguided good intentions, just like you do. We must resist the tidal wave of dehumanizing those we disagree with, and fight […]
