Faithful Forgiveness – June 9 2016
The Apostle John assures us that "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9). God the Father is acting justly and righteously when He forgives us all our sin because someone else has suffered the penalty and paid the price for our transgressions ... Jesus.

Whiter Than Snow – June 8 2016
If you are like me, you are grateful for the gracious forgiveness of God. One of my favorite verses in all the Bible is Psalm 51:7, "... wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Having lived for 16 years in Minnesota, I have vivid pictures in my mind of crisp winter mornings with a fresh blanket of sparkling snow covering everything. God uses that image to communicate to us how complete our forgiveness is. Thank you Jesus!

As Far As The East From The West – June 7 2016
It is easy to project our human emotions and characteristics back onto God. We view Him as angry with us, like we are angry. Holding a grudge, like we tend to - keeping a list of all our sins. But the bible reveals that God is graciously and wonderfully different.

The Prodigal – June 6 2016
How do you think God views you? After engaging in debauchery and squandering his inheritance the prodigal son returned home to plead for mercy from his father. In Luke 15 we read, "while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him. 21 And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son.’ 22 But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring quickly the best robe, and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet. 23 And bring the fattened calf and kill it, and let us eat and celebrate. 24 For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found.’ And they began to celebrate" (Luke 15:20-24). Forgiveness is life giving. As a believer in Jesus, your heavenly Father rejoices in you and celebrates your desire to return to him. Celebrate your acceptance before a holy God through Jesus.

Sifted Like Wheat – June 4 2016
Do you ever feel like you have strayed so far from God that you can never return? Jesus knew that Peter was going to betray Him but He prayerfully envisioned a future when Peter would once again serve Him. Jesus said, “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan demanded to have you, that he might sift you like wheat,32 but I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned again, strengthen your brothers.” (Luke 22:31-32) Satan wants to destroy your life and "sift you like wheat". Regardless of your past, Jesus wants to be a part of your future.

Caught in the Act – June 2 2016
In John 8 we find a woman, caught in the act of adultery, and pulled out into the street to be accused and condemned. Every day the Living God catches us "in the act." His response to us is the same as Jesus' was to the adulterous woman. (Read John 8:1-11)

Nicodemus Came Knocking – May 30 2016
Nicodemus was curious about Jesus. He sought our Jesus in order to clarify who He was and what His message meant. Jesus shared Nicodemus' need to be born again through faith in Him. Nicodemus' need 2000 years ago remains the need of mankind today - Knowing Christ in a personal way.
