John 4:29 Come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did: is not this the Christ? The account of the woman at the well is a familiar one, but verse 29 mystified me for the longest time. So, I prayed and asked God to help me understand it better. This woman … Continue reading Like the Woman at the Well
How God Sees Us
Balak was the leader of the people of Moab, an enemy of Israel. When he saw Moses leading the multitudes of Israel to the Promised Land he called up the prophet Balaam to call down a curse upon the Israelites. This never happened. God would only allow Balaam to bless Israel, not curse them. What … Continue reading How God Sees Us

Just One Question
