We need to change the way we think.

The widow who cried out for help was consumed by her own self-pity. And why not? Her life was a wreck, and worse was coming. Everything was falling apart around her. Her husband had died prematurely, and with the main wage-earner gon...

 

God wants to pour fresh oil into you today. We read in Acts 2 about the Holy Spirit coming at Pentecost and filling Jesus’ disciples, empowering them to go out and plant the Church. But it is still Pentecost. God is still anointing, filling and empowering those who be...

 So much darkness exists in our world. But when we are full of the presence of God, full of Holy Spirit, we are no longer afraid to confront the hellish darkness.
