Taking God for Granted
May 10th, 2021

A Model for Prayer
April 26th, 2021

April 20th, 2021

Don't Hide Your Hurt
April 9th, 2021

Hunger for the Word
March 13th, 2021
One thing I find interesting about this text is that it does not appear to be the “star” power of Jesus that is drawing the crowds that day. Remember, this is very early in Jesus’ ministry and he has...  Read More

Looking for Jesus
March 11th, 2021
So, I guess I love this verse (out of context) because it shows the passion that this group of people had for Jesus. When they saw he was not in their presence, they hunted for him. When they found ...  Read More

Teach Me To Pray
January 20th, 2021
