Jesus Prays for You

Jesus has just finished washing his disciples feet, predicting who will betray Him, and giving a long talk to His disciples, covering everything from the Holy Spirit to foretelling His death and resurrection.

On Suffering and the Sovereignty of God

Today I'm going to share some exerts from a book I'm reading by Elisabeth Elliot, and some thoughts of my own afterwards. They are all primarily about suffering and God's sovereign hand in it. I pray that these words will encourage you this morning. "Have you noticed those two verses in Psalm 147 that juxtapose… Continue reading On Suffering and the Sovereignty of God
