Jesus in Genesis Pg 2 Jesus is the Light

really old  book isolated on white background.

Most of my life I thought that the main purpose of the book of Genesis was to tell the story of creation. It is one of the reasons we have the book of Genesis, but the primary purpose is to reveal God’s plan of redemption for mankind…and that plan is about Jesus.  [Read more…]

Want the Christmas Message in a nutshell?  “Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.”   That was the voice of one crying in the wilderness, John the Baptist.  This baby, Jesus… the one we celebrate this week,  came to Earth for one reason only.

Behold the Lamb of God pt 5

I never would have found her picture, except I was looking for someone else’s photo. [Read more…]

Today we turn the page in our dusty old album and find wedding photos.   The day of the first wedding, ever.  I love a wedding, don’t you? I love the planning and ceremony of a wedding. It’s an important day to the two people who vow to love each thru thick and thin. Marriage is important to God. After all, it was His idea in the first place.  Marriage is important because reflects a picture of God’s character. Or at least it should! [Read more…]
