DEVOTION: Loving God

There is an abundance of teaching on the love of God in the Church today, which is a good thing, after all, "for God so loved the word that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life."

DEVOTION: Presumption

Faith in God is not presumption.  What is presumption? “an idea that is taken to be true, and often used as the basis for other ideas, although it is not known for certain.” How do we presume upon God? By proclaiming instead of praying is one way we can presume upon God. Some see faith as... Continue Reading →

DEVOTION: Give it to God

Just give it to God. How often have we said that to ourselves or had someone say it to us? When we’re stressed, things are piling up, or we don’t know what to do in a situation, we know the answer is to give it to God. So many of us are quick to pray;... Continue Reading →
