Know God in a Year #259 The End and the Beginning

04/23/2021

And so ends our journey through the life of Jesus. For a year we’ve walked with Him who gave us the best and clearest picture of God ever shared with humanity–“God with us.” I hope you know God better, have fallen in love with Him through Jesus, and see the larger view of the war […]

Know God in a Year #194 Wise Men from the West

As Jesus is leaving the temple, some Greeks approach Philip in the outer court saying, “We want to see Jesus.” Philip tells Andrew and they go to Jesus.

Many caravans passed through it; and many Roman officials, priests, and government workers lived there. Zacchaeus is […]

Know God in a Year #90 Being Real

09/03/2020

Pretending to belong to God is worthless. Unless you love truth, it becomes a curse, twisting and strangling love, and making you judgmental. Jesus shows how far God’s principles reach: If you indulge pornography, you violate women and yourself–you will soon be addicted. If you hold on to hate and anger, you are starting down […]

Know God in a Year–# 52 God Shares Secrets with an Outcast Woman

07/04/2017

Jesus’ answer to the Samaritan woman is full of courtesy but he doesn’t hide. He allows her to steer the conversation away from her, and he steps right into centuries of controversy with decisive words, watching for an opening to get back to her heart. “The time is coming when the place of worship won’t […]
