“Even outside the borders of Israel, the Lord is great (Malachi 1:5). The Lord is not great because we call Him great. We call Him great because He is great. When we worship God, we are not creating His greatness. We worship God because He is so much greater than we can put into words […]

Learning From God's Word

Is this all that there is? or Is there more?

The question of God keeps on coming back to us. It will not go away.

If there is no God, what are we left with?

Without God, we go through life, wondering “What’s this all about?”

We do our best to make it sense of it all, but we don’t seem to get anywhere with this.

The more we think about life’s most important questions the more we start to wonder if, with all our education we’re missing something.

Perhaps, when we start thinking like this, we should consider what Jesus has to say to us.

Jesus tells us that there’s a wise way of living, and there’s a foolish way of living. Jesus tells us about two builders – “a wise man who built his house on the rock” (Matthew 7:24) and “a foolish man who built his house…

Words – spoken by God, spoken to God, spoken for God

Learning From God's Word

In 1 Samuel 3 and Isaiah 6, we read about words that were spoken by God, words that were spoken to God and words that were spoken for God.

In 1 Samuel 3, we begin with a young boy. He hears the Word of the Lord. The Lord is calling out to Samuel. Samuel did not choose to be the Lord’s servant. He was chosen by God. Samuel responded to God’s call. In verse 10, we have the call of God and Samuel’s response: “The Lord came and stood there, calling as at the other times, ‘Samuel! Samuel!’ Then Samuel said, ‘Speak, for your servant is listening.’” In verse 11, God indicates to young Samuel that something wonderful is about to happen: “And the Lord said to Samuel: ‘See, I am about to do something in Israel that will make the ears of everyone who hears about it tingle.'” Did young Samuel understand all…
