  • Praying With Good King Hezekiah

    Contributed by Reuben Bredenhof on Feb 22, 2021
     | 256 views

    Looking back on the last few months, do you feel like you’ve been praying more, or is it less? Is this a practice that has been strengthened with you, or has it struggled? Has the seeking become less diligent, or the knocking not so confident? A praying Christian is a living Christian!

    In Luke 11:9 Jesus says these words to us, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” Simple commands, yet astonishing. For his words reveal the great privilege that we have when we pray. This is the heavenly power that we access whenever we ...read more

    Contributed by John Williams Iii on Aug 14, 2020
     | 1,702 views

    Perhaps one of the most intriguing passages of scripture is that of Paul's mention of the "thorn in his flesh." Paul expounded upon his metaphor of the thorn as he said that it was something that kept his pride in check.

    THORNS AND GRACE 2 Corinthians 12:1-10 I remember going barefoot as a ten year old kid, when I was living in Aiken as a preacher’s kid. As I was going barefoot, I wound up stepping on a board that had three nails in it. The pain got my attention and definitely ...read more

     | 6,259 views

    This statement of the Apostle Paul “For when I am weak, then am I strong” is confusing and difficult for many to accept. Paul was not anti-power or wants us to be weak. He was a very strong man in many aspects of his life. What did he really mean?
