There is a trend these days in church life to be casual and comfortable, even when it comes to our approach to God. Although our Heavenly Father indeed wants us to feel comfortable coming to Him, nevertheless we should have a reverence and an awe that precedes our approach. This was the sage advice of … [Read more…]
The apostle Paul told his star pupil in the faith, Timothy, to “study to show yourself approved.” The Christian faith will not seep into our lives through osmosis. WE need to break open our Bibles and really dig into the contents if we are to find the buried treasure contained therein. Timothy was willing to … [Read more…]
