True Intimacy With God

Since the beginning of creation, God intended to carve out a space in his heart to love mankind. Holy intimacy with God prevailed in the Garden of Eden. But, God alone can’t maintain this intimacy.

Cut to the Heart

The book of Acts contrasts two responses to the gospel. First, on the Day of Pentecost, Peter preached to a crowd of laypeople.

Requirements of God

What are the requirements of God? Is saying, “I’m saved,” enough? These questions concerned the Jews of Jesus’ day, and Jesus gave very clear answers.
