Invisible Prisons

How often do we find ourselves chasing after things that do not bring life? Jesus taught that life was found in him alone. And yet, we often return to old patterns of life.

Paul’s words are both a strong warning and a tender plea to pursue only Christ.
 

Sons and Daughters of Abraham

Paul shares the incredible reality that those who put their faith in Jesus can become Abraham's offspring.  Abraham is a profound example of a man of faith as he believed what God said and therefore acted upon that belief.  Through the complete work of Jesus, we can be grafted into the family of God, a family which is not based on lineage, background, or works, but rather on Jesus' righteousness.
