We live in a culture which is constantly searching for more and never seems to be satisfied. More money, more time, more of a buzz, more facebook time, more, more, more. This more culture can seep into our Christian world and make us think there must be more to Christian life than Jesus. Paul is writing to a church that is tempted to move on from him, being promised greater spiritual highs elsewhere. Paul wants the Colossians to know that could not be further from the truth. The way to move on is by not moving on from Jesus, because you cannot get better than him
We are living in turbulent, volatile, fearful times. Like the people of Isaiah’s day, we can be tempted to turn to and trust in all the wrong things. Join us as we work through the introduction to Isaiah and discover Good News for Turbulent Times
The Psalms is a songbook consisting of a rich variety of poems which God’s people have used through the ages to pray and praise Him through the ups and downs of life. Psalms 12-14 are often described as Psalms of Lament, because they reverberate with the sound of the Psalmist’s cries for help from God. Overwhelmed by the circumstances of life and universal opposition, the Psalmist is refreshingly real with God; Psalms 12-14 chime powerfully with believers who are experiencing anxiety, frustration, uncertainty, doubt, suffering or facing hostile opposition in their Christian life.
