Can God Look on Sin?

Sometime back, I discovered that a statement I have used and taught to others was leading me to an incorrect understanding of biblical truth. So many times I’ve heard taught and repeated the statement “God cannot look on sin.”  The teaching this came from was the concept that God hates sin and Jesus stands as […]

How Well is Your Soul?

God has been whispering to me lately about the message that the famous old hymn talks about.  You know the old song I’m talking about, It is well with my soul.  And as he has whispered the question, asking of the condition of my soul, I’ve had to look deeper than surface to find an […]

Enough

Most of my life I have felt one overarching feeling.  That is the feeling of not being enough:  Not enough to be loved.  Not enough to be wanted. Not enough for people to want to know me.  Not enough for people to want to be my friend. Not enough for good things to happen to me. […]
