From the “Hall of Faith” of Hebrews 11, to those we desire to emulate in our era, we all have a spiritual legacy from which we can draw confidence in God’s faithfulness. We can look back on the example set for us by men like David Jones to preach the gospel, use soap if necessary. Read Article>

“Is My Baby In Heaven?” Why I Believe God’s Word Assures Us We Can Say, “Yes.”

God does not want us to be agnostics on the eternal destiny of babies. Shouldn’t we expect that He would give us an answer to something that affects so many? I believe that God is clear in Scripture that He welcomes into heaven each baby who dies, born or unborn. Read Article>

Stubborn Love: Reflecting the Gospel by Keeping Your Marriage Covenant

Jesus will never leave His bride. Yet, He does more than provide a supreme example of stubborn love for His bride.
