The God of the universe has set His love upon you and even so, the whole trinity works in unity to bring you to perfection through intercession on your behalf. Be of good cheer as you consider this glorious truth!
This week’s pSaturday Psalm comes from Psalm 119:65-72. Psalm 119 is a wonderful psalm that is really a “love poem,” so to speak, about God’s word! It is the longest chapter in the Bible — composed of 22 8 verse stanzas where the first letter of each line in a stanza begins with the same […]
In TAU Roundtable 005, the guys discuss the disposition Christians should have toward sports and give some sports hot-takes.
