Joe, 5 years ago

The topic of today’s study is ‘Iron Sharpens Iron’, based on a nifty bible verse – Proverbs 27:17: As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.

Joe, 5 years ago

Our human side often means we like to take control of things.  The only problem with it is that sometimes this is at odds with what God wants to do.  God’s plan can even seem counter-intuitive at first, but as Isaiah 55:8-9 puts it: 8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” Read more…

Does God forget?

Pete Harrigan, 5 years ago

Does God forget things? Well not quite, but he doesn’t remember our sins once we repent of them: “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more” ~ (Hebrews 8:12).

Joe, 5 years ago

Jesus says to receive the kingdom of God as a little child.  This of course, isn’t to act childish, as 1 Corinthians 13:11 puts it: 11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish Read more…
