FAITH! BUT WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

FAITH! BUT WHAT DOES IT MEAN?

There’s lots we can’t do on our own. Especially as Christians. Stuff like overcoming the world – see 1 John 5:4 – can only be done with faith in God. ‘Faith’ is one of those words that’s not often defined for us (like ‘Hosanna’ or ‘Amen’… ‘Bless’… ...

SHADOW OPS

SHADOW OPS

What is the “shadow of the Almighty”? Isn’t it a bit of a gloomy metaphor? When typhoon season comes to the Philippines, don’t you just wish that summer were just around the corner? But if you’d been living in the blistering heat of a desert for the last forty years or so ...

Romans 8:37 –We are “more than conquerors” in this world. But do we really know what it means? I know it took many years for me to learn it. Living victoriously in Christ! I remember many years when I went to church faithfully every week, yet my private life was pathetic. It
