Psalm 46: Praying for Strength

We are seeing in our study of the Psalms how these poems instruct us to learn how to approach the powerful things we deal with in life and the emotions they produce in us. The Psalms teach us to pray. Join us this week as we explore the call of Psalm 46 as it challenges us to cease our striving and rest in knowing God’s mammoth effort to bring us help and how He is a refuge and strength.

The Revolution of the King 10: The Dead are Raised

Guatemalan poet Julia Esquivel wrote a poem called “They Have Threatened Us with Resurrection.” It may sound strange that the message of Easter may be threatening. Everything Jesus is and everything Jesus taught is true and now grasps us with authority, and we will follow him wherever he leads. This Easter, let’s come expecting to meet with the risen Lord.
