How To Find What You’ve Lost

Even if we lose something that’s not considered high value, we still deal with the emotions of frustration or sadness. When we lose something and can’t find it, it sits in the back of our mind as something unresolved. We feel responsible and sometimes horrible about losing it.

Along with the birth of the church, we see documented miracles and “acts” that followed as believers shared this great news of Jesus’ resurrection everywhere they went.

Am I My Brother’s Keeper?

Cain and Abel are recognized as history’s first ever children born to Adam and Eve. Their sibling rivalry had got the better of them to the point where Cain would do the unthinkable. Rather than having his back, Cain had become so filled with envy and rage toward his brother Abel that he attacked and killed him in a field.

Hallowed Be Your Name

For most of us this is not everyday English but to hallow someone is to highly respect and revere them – to recognize the honor of being in their presence. Coming to our Father begins with giving him honor and recognizing his holiness.
