Evil’s Fury and God’s Purpose
In infinite compassion, our Sovereign God works in relationship with his faithful people to weave together the pain, the evil, and the loss in order to advance Christ’s Kingdom in the world. The responsibility for the evil actions sits squarely on the shoulders of the evildoers. God is NOT the author of evil. God is our creator who continues to create through his power and compassion and relationship with us, his people. He asks us to join him in creating an answer to the question, “What shall we create out of this evil deed that will advance Heaven’s purpose?”View More Evil’s Fury and God’s Purpose

Where’s My Place of Service? – Richard Leslie Parrott, Ph.D.
So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what God wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.View More Where’s My Place of Service? – Richard Leslie Parrott, Ph.D.
