First of all, we have traditionally argued strongly that the “church” (Matthew 16:18; 18:17; etc.) is nothing to do with buildings, structures and hierarchies.

Today’s thought “That by it you may grow up into salvation” (December 12)

“That you may grow up into salvation” We meditate thoughtfully on Peter’s first letter: he was writing to the “elect exiles of the Dispersion” (1:1) – primarily Jews – as James (1:1) had also done “To the twelve tribes in the Dispersion” (1:1). Peter names them as being in “Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia”… Read More Today’s thought “That by it you may grow up into salvation” (December 12)

But those who are diligent readers of God’s word do understand! Our heading is quoted from the prophet Micah – and his words contain things we can relate to in our own days.

Today’s thought “Look you scoffers” (November 3)

Today’s thought > “Look you scoffers” (November 3) Today we read how the missionary work of the dramatically converted Paul began in earnest.
