Marvelous grace of our loving Lord

Rembrandt’s “Return of the Prodigal”

"And he arose and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion, and ran and embraced him and kissed him.” 
- The Gospel of Luke 15:20

Commenting on this verse about the return of the prodigal son, Norval Geldenhuys wrote-

"So inexplicably wonderful is the love of God that He not merely forgives the repentant sinner, but actually goes to meet him and embraces him in His love and grace."

The Church must remain steadfast




Decades of "everyone doing what is right in their own eyes" is coming home to roost. 

The deepening godlessness of America is causing the multiplication of all sorts of wickedness. In preparation for whatever is coming, the Church must remain steadfast in faithfulness to Christ, His Word, and gospel expressions of His love to others. 

Either God will give influence to His people and stem the current of a debauched culture or He will let things continue to crumble. Then, from the rubble of America's broken idols, we hope for God to grant a purified Church the grace to be workers in the rebuilding of a renewed civilization for the glory of King Jesus.
