From Prison to Power: When God Opens a Door

Living as a Christian in the world can feel like a fish out of water! We are aliens and strangers, but greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world! God is preparing us for service in a hostile environment, we just don't know how or when. So be ready!
Scripture: Genesis 41

When Dreams of Freedom Don't Come True

There are many 'prisons' in life, often hidden from view. Spiritual prisons are worse than physical ones. We cry out for God to deliver us, but sometimes it seems He has forgotten us. God doesn't do that. He'll never forsake you. As you dream, never stop trusting in God!
Scripture: Genesis 40

God's Amazing Grace , Judah and Tamar

James 4.17 says, "To one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin." God's perspective on sin, and His ability to sovereignly bring good out of a corrupt situation, is on display in our passage today - the scandalous story of Judah and Tamar.

Chosen by God, Hated by Man

The final section of Genesis, the toledot of Jacob, begins abruptly in Genesis 37 with the revelation of a dysfunctional family. Emotions run hot, and divisions run deep. There are hints of what is to come, and behind the scenes, the hand of God is guiding it all.
Scripture: Genesis 37:2-11

Lessons for Life from Philippians

The Epistle of Philippians is a favorite for many Christians because it oozes with optimism!  Against all odds, Paul sees a 'silver lining' to the 'dark clouds' of spiritual opposition surrounding him. What 'lessons for life' can we apply in our lives this coming year?
Scripture: Philippians 1-4
