A Great Day Of Fishing – Obedience

Jesus arrives in Capernaum, and the collectors of the two-drachma temple tax come to collect taxes from Peter and Jesus. And while the king is due his taxes, even he is subject to the higher king who is God our Father, the King and Creator of the world. And when you consider that Jesus who

Statistics, Quotes, And Knowing God

Isn’t it interesting how much we know about so many things, yet we know so little about our Creator, the One who formed us and gave us life? We know sports statistics of every game, every player, every sport, debate all of the details of politics and what every candidate said or did not say,

Faith At The Feet Of Jesus

Two hundred of the six hundred men could not go on because they had not eaten or slept in 3 days. So the two

Authority And Total Power

Have you ever hung out with someone of real power and authority? Life is very different for them. One such time I found myself pulling up to a waterside restaurant in a huge boat to an order of champagne and oysters and beverages for the huge group of people. People jumped at the mention of
