Enduring Others

In the “Parable of the Unforgiving Servant,” Jesus taught us about forgiveness (Matthew 18:21-35). In this parable, we learn when to forgive, why we forgive, and how to forgive. Much can be said about the theme of “forgiveness.” I would like to explore it further in Colossians 3:12-13. 12 So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and…

Better to Lose Your Life Than Waste It

(The following are my favorite quotes from the booklet “Risk is Right” by John Piper) The Word of our Lord did great harm to the beliefs of American Christianity (Matthew 16:24-27).
