A Dreadful Day

Hebrews 10:31 – The first Good Friday was a dreadful day for Jesus, but it was the basis for our acceptance before God.  It’s a dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living God, but, thankfully, Jesus went there for us.

Today (1900-2016AD)

We live in the “modern world” that is skeptical about the place of religion in life, let alone the claims of Christ.  Yet in this era the church continues to thrive.  Across the globe, churches continue to proclaim the Gospel, and this will continue until Jesus returns.  God’s wisdom continues to be on display in […]
