Today's Talk
Truth Or Consequences 2.22.20

Whatever we try to cover, God will uncover, and whatever we uncover, God will cover. At some point, the sin we’re hiding will be exposed, so we can choose to expose it ourselves or wait to be found out. If we’re looking for the Truth, His name is Jesus — and He’ll cover our sin, but we have to confess it to Him, first.

Throwing Stones

We’ve all heard the saying, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.” But recently, I’ve been reflecting more deeply on the origins of that phrase. In John 8, we find Jesus teaching in the temple in Jerusalem. The scribes and the Pharisees have brought before Him a woman who’s been caught in… Read more »
