No Strings, No Gimmicks

I’m not big on ritual; especially rituals designed by man. Jesus came to absolve us of those things, allowing us to please God by loving Him and not by the things we do. We are saved by grace, not by works.

Do not be carried away by all kinds of strange teachings. It is good for our hearts to be strengthened by grace, not by ceremonial foods, which are of no value to those who eat them. Hebrews 13:9

She was nearly blind, almost deaf, and even her keen sense of smell had faded, but her love and loyalty to me and Sherry were as strong and unwavering as ever. Read the rest of this entry »

Deeper Than the Deepest Ocean

There are galaxies full of stars and unknown things so far out in space we may never see them, even with all the technology we command. Space is beyond measure and infinite, but compared to God’s love, you could put it all on the head of a pin. Read the rest of this entry »

God’s Peace
