Some Thoughts on Faith

Let me start with a disclaimer that this is not an attempt to define faith in a blog. People write books on it. People make a one sentence definition of it. I’m not trying to define it as much as put down lessons from it that I have learned as it is exercised and even…

All In

Romans 6:4 “We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.” I feel that all too often we, as Christians, take certain parts of scripture and then ignore other…
