“On the third day a wedding took place at Cana in Galilee. Jesus’ mother was there, and Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding” (John 2:1-2). Two things stand out to me in the story of Jesus turning water into wine. First, Mary expects her son to do something about the […]
“The true test of a man of God is how he treats people who cannot help him.” Adrian Rogers

In 1915 J. Wilbur Chapman preached a sermon at Montreat Conference Center in North Carolina on Psalm 45:8, “All Your garments are scented with myrrh and aloes and cassia, Out of the ivory palaces, by which they have made you glad.” As Dr. Chapman emphasized what Jesus left behind when he came from heaven to earth, Harry Barraclough felt […]
