“We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed” (2 Corinthians 4:8-9).

December 15, 2018

“Nothing is impossible for God” (Luke 1:37). In one of his sermons Walt Gerber mentioned a plaque hanging on his wall: Walt, Do not feel totally, personally, irrevocably responsible for everything.

11. The Promise of Sufficient Strength

December 13, 2018

“I can do all things through him who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). What does this verse mean? What is God promising to do for us?

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11). Some versions say, “to give you an expected end.” That’s actually a good way to translate the last phrase of Jeremiah 29:11. God is not […]

“We have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One” (1 John 2:1). People who live in big cities understand this principle.
