Jesus was crucified with robbers that seemed beyond saving, but Jesus is a Saviour and KING who lay down His life as a sacrifice for lost sinners in fulfillment of God's promises in Scripture. On Good Friday Jesus died and was buried in a tomb, and thus set the stage to confirm beyond doubt His miraculous resurrection days later.Verses in order of …

Paul wrote to believers to show how an identity as God's people impacts our view of ourselves and others, and just because we claim to be Christians does not mean we are living like Christ.

Ecclesiastes is a book of the Bible that powerfully contradicts the idea we can earn, acquire or experience anything under the sun that can provide lasting satisfaction and rest.

Solomon observed the vanity of life under the sun and considered how to best benefit in the "here and now" in the fear of God. He emphasised our need to listen to God, value His word, and rejoice in God, our portion Who falls to us now and satisfies us completely.Ecclesiastes 5:1-3Matthew 6:5-8Ecclesiastes 5:4-7Numbers 30:2Jeremiah 23:25-28Ecclesia…

God reveals Himself in the Bible as the God who heals His people, and we can rest assured knowing it is God's will to heal.
