Loving God's Word

Ephesians

In the book of Ephesians, Scripture tells us that God is building a reality of oneness among His people, a reality of “together,” “family,” and “team” (Eph 1:10, 2:19-22, 4:4-6, 4:11-16, 4:25-32). It’s not just a dream or an ideal—it’s reality. That building process is happening now, in our lifetimes, in our minds and hearts. God is building believers together as one in Christ.

Isaiah: Setting Things Right

Merry Christmas! In Isaiah 4:2, Jesus, who is called the Branch of the Lord, is beautiful, excellent, glorious, and appealing.

The Branch: The Heart’s Delight

            Every year we go to the same Christmas tree lot and spend about half an hour picking out our favorite.  Once we have wrestled the tree into the house and onto its stand, our first reward is the beauty of the tree.
