The Holy Spirit

6/10/2018
More
Jim Somerville: "In my work as a pastor I have talked with people who were afraid they had committed the unforgiveable sin. And some of the sins they described to me were shocking; I'm not sure I would have been able to forgive them. But in almost every case I was able to reassure those people and say, 'No, as bad as that is, it is not the unforgiveable sin. There is only one sin Jesus said couldn't be forgiven...'"

United

5/21/2018
More
Allie Osborne: "God said that he would pour out his spirit on all people. All people, he said: the young, the old, the men, the women, the Pentecostals, the Baptists, the believers, the non-believers, the insiders, the outsiders, those who understood, and those who didn't. That day, when the tongues of fire came from Heaven, God did something to us. He united us in his worship..."

From Confusion to Rejoicing

4/29/2018
More
Emma Potts: "[Philip] was in the midst of a very successful ministry, yet he came down a road that he didn't know where it was leading.

Vine and Branches

4/29/2018
More
Jim Somerville: "I notice in this passage that Jesus says 'every branch that does not bear fruit is cut off, and every branch that does bear fruit is pruned.'

Jesus Himself Stood Among Them

4/15/2018
More
