When we are born again under God's sovereignty, He replaces our entire life with His life in us. He provides a complete renewal! This manifests itself in so many ways--He gives us a new mind, the mind of Christ, so that we may know Him more and better; He gives us a new heart, a heart of flesh,...

When the Holy Spirit invades us as a holy fire, He sometimes comes in gently. And sometimes... rather fiercely! When He roars His fire to refine us from impurities, it can be painful. But the result is always to His glory--a new heart, released from the chains of sin and temptation. When He...

Trois Minutes - on issues and solutions Aug 28, 2021

The woman who hoped to touch the hem of Jesus' garment believed that the tassels from the hem of His robe would be enough to heal her, where 12 years of doctors had failed. How can we emulate her faith where we too struggle with spiritual hemorrhaging? Whether it's stress, fear, shame, anger,...

The flesh of Jesus was torn to pieces from top to bottom, just like the curtain of the Temple.
