God’s Voice is Found in God’s Word


Posted by Joe Paris on

The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.— John 10:3-4 I love the passage of scripture that talks about Jesus as the Great Shepherd and how the sheep hear his voice and follow him. The language is so poetic...

Lighting the Way


Posted by Casey Pruitt on

You would never know it by looking at me, but I get up almost every morning at 4:45 to go to the gym. Obviously, it’s still completely dark outside, because we are all supposed to be asleep then. I have two kids that I have to help get ready in the mornings so, if I want to hit the gym, I...

Jesus is the Light


Posted by Randy Wade on

Darkness is a bully. I don’t know if you have ever encountered a bully, but their mouths typically exaggerate their strength. What do I mean by that? A lot of bullies are all talk. They want to appear strong but, in reality, are weak and powerless. Darkness is a lot like that insecure kid...

The God of Creation and Re-Creation


Posted by Nolan Jones III on

Have you ever noticed the unmistakable similarities between the beginning of the book of Genesis and the beginning of the book of John? Take a moment to examine both passages and notice the similarities: In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and...

Exposing the Darkness


Posted by Blake Clickner on

I love to hunt. It’s in my top-five favorite things to do. When I go hunting, I normally get up very early in the morning and head out to the stand. I want to get up before there is any light and, to do that, you have to get up around 4 a.m. At this time in the morning, out in the country...

Grace to You


Posted by Joey Hensley on

Jesus Christ had been put to death on cross, buried in a tomb, and then — just like he said — he conquered death and rose from the dead. Then it was time for Jesus to reveal himself for the first time to someone here on Earth. Obviously, Jesus would choose one of his beloved...

Only One Escape


Posted by Valerie Williams on

Escape rooms are the latest craze. The Internet’s favorite and most trusted source (LOL), Wikipedia, leads its description with this statement, “An escape room is a physical adventure game in which players solve a series of puzzles using clues, hints and strategies to...

Free Indeed!


Posted by Joy Vroonland on

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.— John 8:36 To live a resurrected life is to live with freedom and joy. Why do so many of us live as though we are still slaves, as unfree people? I, myself, had recently become enslaved to fear in a specific situation, and I...

The Gift We Truly Need


Posted by Andrew Knight on

Ever received a gift you already had? You probably tried to be gracious about it but, deep down, you may have felt like it was a waste. Who needs something they've already got? (With gift cards from Oscar Delta being a notable exception.) So when we read in John 10:10 that Jesus said, “I...
