The Sensitivity of Grace
by Brian Bill

In this story of the woman caught in adultery, we see that Jesus bestows His amazing grace in the midst of the judgment of others. It’s so easy for us to get angry with those who sin differently than we do. Jesus challenges our grace-killing attitudes and gives this woman a fresh start.

The Search for Grace
by Brian Bill

Nicodemus was on a search for grace when he came to Jesus at night. Just as Jesus pointed him to the second birth, so too, He challenges us today to complete our search for grace by putting our faith in Him. Grace is a gift, but it has to be received in order for it to be activated in our lives.

The God We Hardly Know: Why I Believe in the Holy Spirit
by Ray Pritchard

The Holy Spirit does everything to bring us to Christ, everything we need to walk with Christ in this life, and everything we need to take us safely from earth to heaven. He does it all for us and he does it for all of us. None of us could live even one day as a Christian without the aid of the Holy Spirit.

Too Young To Die: Confronting the Tragedy of Suicide
by Ray Pritchard

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:10 The devil is a thief. He steals, he kills, he destroys. Everything he touches turns to death. Behind every suicide is the laughing face of Satan, rejoicing that he has found another victim. But when Jesus comes in, he brings life! The only life worth living is the life that is found in Jesus Christ. His life is free, eternal and abundant.
