When I was in grade school, the lot directly behind our house was sold to a builder. Two twin houses were built on the lot. We neighborhood kids watched the progress on those houses all summer long. Once the workers completed their workday and left the site, we would all gather around and check out what had been done that day. I remember jumping down into the pits that became the foundations of the homes.

The inclusive nature of God’s plan for salvation in Jesus was not a last minute decision or a revision of His plan in any way. All the way back in Genesis He makes a salvation promise to Abraham which includes all people over all time. Join Holly, Marilyn, and Carol as we study the Gospel of Luke.
Why are we instructed to seek our bread daily, one day at a time? One reason, I believe, is to teach us to live in the day.

If you knew your time on earth was coming to an end, what would you say or do? If you could write one last letter to those you love, what words of wisdom would it contain? Here we look at Peter’s answer to this question. When the Lord had made it clear to Peter that his time on earth would be ending soon, he authored the three short chapters of 2 Peter, purposing to remind believers how we should live so as to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Join Holly, Marilyn, and Gianna as we explore the seven traits Peter instructs us to strive for as well as the three warnings he gives. They are as applicable today as they were for the early believers Peter cared deeply for and knew he would soon leave behind.
Jesus’ miraculous “Feeding of the 5000” is the only miracle recorded in all four gospels. I guess it made an impression on a myriad of those who witnessed the miracle, as each gospel writer (or his historical interviewees) remembered the incident and had it included it in his version of the gospel.
