  • What You Will Get
    I will give your life to you as a prize in all places, wherever you go. —Jeremiah 45:5This is the firm and immovable secret of the Lord to those who trust Him– “I will give your life to you….” What more does a man want than his life? It is the essential thing. “…your life…as […]
  • Is Christian Ministry Rehab or Rescue?
    Some great evangelists and missionaries have viewed their ministry as rescuing people from the sinking ship of the world. The boat is going down and our job is to save as many as we can from going down with it. “The world is passing away, but whoever does the will of God abides forever” (1 […]
  • The Coming of the Son of Man (Part 1 of 2)
    The instant He ascended into heaven, people wondered, “When is Jesus coming back?” And people ask the same question today. On Truth For Life, Alistair Begg helps us discover that we’re asking the wrong question. Instead of "When will Christ return?" we should ask "How do we prepare?"

God's way is best...

From the desk of the pastor:

Romans 11:33-“Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!” ESV

In our day and age there are many programs that promote an answer to your problem or the things that you struggle with by following these “three easy steps”. It appears that given enough time there could be a formula for everything and maybe these formulas would work if everyone were the same.

This same ideology has crept into the church as well. What areas in the church can we simplify into a neat little program or formula? In light of this I want you to seriously contemplate the words of Paul in Romans 11. God is infinitely deep in His knowledge and wisdom while man is shallow and clouded by his own pride.

God cannot be placed into a box or a lamp like a genie. God knows each one of us better then we know ourselves and has the exact thing that we need to live the Christian life to its fullness, yet we fight Him at every turn. We need to quit fighting God and trust Him because His ways are unsearchable and inscrutable. May we this day surrender some area in our lives to God because then we will gain the real victory, a custom fit way!
