Hearing about, experiencing and responding to the love of God.
Paul Bickley continues our series on the Lord’s Prayer.
Our problem isn’t usually that we come to God with a long list of requests. Our problem is usually that we don’t trust God to meet any needs at all. Like Israel in the desert, the prayer calls us to look to God as our provider.
Paul Bickley concludes the series on the Fruit of the Spirit by looking at self-control.
True self-control goes beyond self-discipline. It comes not when we lay our hands on the controls of our life but when we give them up to Jesus. We become a vice-regent and co-pilot in our own lives, trained to exercise freedom.
Paul Bickley on the story of Ruth – a story of radical, transformative kindness.
The kindness breaking through into Naomi’s life is God’s kindness. But for our kindness to be more than a random act now and again, we have to be rooted in that same kindness of God in Christ. He is the one who left his own country to live with us in ours. He is the one who takes on all our debts. He is the one who came to renew many lives.
