More Than We Can Handle

by Bill Sweeney Have you ever really thought about the statement, “God never gives us more than we can handle?” This statement sounds so encouraging and so comforting when we’re facing a difficult trial, but… I don’t believe it’s true. My living with ALS is more than Mary, and I can handle. I look around … Continue reading More Than We Can Handle

Why did Jesus say to share the gospel with all creation?

Mark 16:15: “He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.'” One of the final recorded things Jesus said was instruction that His Good News be shared with all creation.

The Battle Is God’s Not Yours

Pure Glory

The battle belongs to you, my God of Peace and Lord
In your love I rest, not in the might of flashing sword
Safe from the trial of distressful battle, my fears depart

My prosperity comes by faith and…

Number three is because when others observe our faith it is a great witness to the power of Christ. This is a powerful witnessing tool.

Show me the way, Lord, let my light shine As an example of…

Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.

"His sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground."—Luke 22:44 The mental pressure arising from our Lord's struggle with temptation, so forced his frame to an unnatural excitement, that his pores sent forth great drops of blood which fell down to the ground. This proves how tremendous must have … Continue reading Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.
