by Blaine Freidline | July 4, 2021

Anything short of complete obedience to God brings on His promise of righteous judgment. It is only by God initiating to offer mercy and grace that anyone can be delivered from His judgment.

Wandering Hearts, Wandering Tribe

by Daniel Vanderhorst | June 27, 2021

The Broken Victor

by Johnny Vanderhorst | June 20, 2021

Samson reveals both the consequences of idolatry and folly, and the incredible grace and purpose of God that override them.

Selfish Power

by Mike Bergen | June 13, 2021
