Psalms 30:5 seems a bit strange standing there all by itself. It starts with “for” for goodness sake. There has to be something said prior to this to help make sense of these words. Sure enough, verse 4 says, “Sing to the Lord, all you godly ones! Praise his holy name.” ‭ And before that […]

Peter was preaching in the Temple that day, showing off a man who had been lame and deformed but was now healed and whole.

The Apostle Paul wrote letters to the churches throughout Asia Minor. The one we’re looking at today was written to the believers at Colossae. In the portion of his letter we now call chapter 3, Paul is explaining how believers should live this new life they’ve chosen. He penned, “Since God chose you to be […]

Preface: I apologize for being so late in posting. I slept late and have been basking in the love of friends and family wishing me happy birthday. ————————————- Peter tells believers that God has given us everything we need to live godly lives. Hmmm.
