His Name is Jesus

Another wonderfully encouraging and insightful article from Randy Alcorn! Here is my favorite quote: “One of many startling statements about Jesus is this: ‘No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side, he has made him known’ (John 1:18 ESV). So Jesus is God and is at the Father’s side, and He has come to make God known to us. Provided what we learn is true, the more we learn about Jesus, the more we know about the God that no one has seen, but in another sense can be truly seen in Jesus. He is the explanation and illustration of who God really is.”…………………….

The Difference between Wishing and Praying

This is a nice article on prayer and here is the takeaway quote for me: “’The Christian’s relationship to God is like that of a little child to a kind Father. The Father wants his child to ask him for help. He intends to meet all the desires of his child’s heart. But he will answer the child’s requests according to his own wisdom, not the child’s — and therefore all the more lavishly.’” From Pierce Taylor Hibbs…………………….
