  • Seeing And Hearing Again

    Contributed by Wayne Cordeiro on May 16, 2013
     | 4,329 views

    The Bible says our hearts, like that of the Pharisees, can get calloused against God. It is not intentional, but our hearts get dull. We have to recondition them and reopen our eyes to see Him afresh.

    Eyes to See The Pharisees were trained and schooled to recognize God, to hear His voice and to know what God was saying. They looked for something that was so obviously close, but never saw Him. When He actually came on that Christmas, they did not even recognize Him. In fact, even when He ...read more

  • Those Gentiles!

    Contributed by Greg Nance on Jul 27, 2013
     | 1,343 views

    We Gentiles have been granted repentance by God. This gift is of greater worth than anything this world has to offer. The early church was not excited to open the door of faith to us. What then shall be our response to God's gift of grace?

    What to do with those Gentiles!? Acts 11 records when the doors of the church swung wide open to every nation and Peter was called on the carpet for taking the first steps. We look at this today and wonder how they could have missed it. Did not Jesus himself commission them to go into all the ...read more
