God’s Treasure

October 1 – Today’s Readings - 1Thessalonians 1-3 and Psalms 91 Chapter 2:19-20 of 1Thessalonians reads; "For what is our hope, our joy, or the crown in which we will glory in the presence of our Lord Jesus when he comes? Is it not you? Indeed, you are our glory and joy." This perspective on "the true riches of the Kingdom" is the subject I would like us to focus on for a moment. We invest Continue Reading

September 27 – Today’s Readings - Micah 4-5 and Psalms 87 Micah is a fascinating book because it is quite futuristic in parts. Chapter 4 begins in this way; 4:1-2 “In the last days the mountain of the LORD's temple will be established as chief among the mountains; it will be raised above the hills, and peoples will stream to it. Many nations will come and say, ‘Come, let us go up to the Continue Reading
