Why did God send His Son?
Every year at Christmas we are reminded that God sent his Son into the world as a baby – a small, helpless child. We drive down the street and we are reminded of it as we drive past nativity scenes. Our songs on the radio, like Joy to the World, Away in a Manger and O Little Town of Bethlehem, sing praise to the fact that Jesus came. But tonight, I want to Continue reading “Christmas: Why God Sent His Son”

We are continuing on with our discussion on the Holy Spirit. I wanted to touch on an issue now, while we are on the subject of the Holy Spirit’s power and we may spend more time on it later and that’s the issue of Spirit empowered prayer.

In this special episode, I sit down with my wife to discuss a book we are reading called “Shepherding a Child’s Heart” written by Tedd Tripp. We discuss the general premise of this book, which is that all of our actions are controlled by our heart and children are best corrected by dealing with the heart issue, not the behavior. The behavior is simply a symptom of a deeper underlying issue. We hope you will enjoy this special series. Please feel free to share with your friends and family!
