The glory of the Lord was revealed in the most humble way—in a way no one expected. One day we will really understand what the word “glory” means, but for now, all we know is it's one of the heaviest and weightiest words we can use to describe our Saviour.
What words come to mind when you hear the term theology? Dry…Dreary…Doubtful…DULL? You’re not alone.
Too often we don’t realize that theology—thinking about God—is an intimate part of our everyday lives, rather than something that takes place in ivory towers crowded with bearded men crouched over dusty books. We each engage in theology because we each have a set of beliefs about God. But rather than being content with our ideas about God as they now stand, we should each have a desire to know God better than we do today. If you’ve got that desire, then you’re ready to do theology!
Let these resources point the way to a faith more deeply connected with who God actually says He is.
Acceptance or rejection of Christ’s work on the cross determines our destiny of heaven or hell. But how we live—choosing to sin or not—and the kind of sin we commit matters now, and for eternity.

The Devil was blame-worthy for his deception. But he did not make her take the fruit. Adam and Eve gave in to their own desires and made a deliberate choice for which they and they alone were responsible.
Because of God's work on our behalf, Christians now have the hope of redemption by grace through faith.
True giving means giving to God with no expectation of return. It’s a mark of real faith, because though we are giving to a visible person or organization, we are doing it in a way that signals our mind and heart is surrendered to an invisible God.
What’s your definition of truth? Is truth debatable or is it absolute? If you’re struggling with knowing what’s true, you’re not alone.
When many of us think of biblical prophecy we think it only applies to things to come. There is that aspect, but future things are only a small part in comparison to the rest of biblical prophecy.
The thing that determines whether the exercise of making judgments is sinful or not is the attitude that accompanies it. Is it done in a humble, loving way or a proud, critical, unloving way?
We live in a day marked by shallow concepts of God. We’ve lost our sense of reverence...God has become our “pal,” our understanding buddy. But God is holy. He’s our Creator. He is our sovereign and glorious Lord, worthy of all our praise and worship.
