The God who never tries

clouds-539x360

I often hear people say things like, “God is trying to tell you something!” It sounds right, but it is not. God never tries. The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines the verb “try” in the following three ways: to make an effort to do something : to attempt to accomplish or complete something to do or use Continue Reading

Two Ways To Freedom, Part V

Everyone wants to be free! And in our previous lessons we learned that there are potentially two ways to get there. Last time we explored the first way: rebellion. Theoretically, if we can remove all of the boundaries and rules, we should be free, right? But here’s the thing… some boundaries can’t be removed, and Continue Reading

Saturday Psalm: He Giveth More Grace

psalm

I heard this hymn after a very long time a couple of weeks ago and have been thinking about the reality of its lyrics ever since.

WhatNow-Maze

Here’s the problem: We want to be free, but we’re not. Jesus even died so we could be free (Galatians 5:1), but we’re still not free! What’s up with that? In our last lesson we learned that the first way to freedom, rebellion, isn’t an option because there is no way we can really rebel Continue Reading
