Today’s Prayer

I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands.
I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.
Praise be to you, Lord; teach me your decrees. 
—Psalm 119:10-12 (NIV)

Dear heavenly Father, you do not stray from me, but I stray from you.  I have my own agenda.  Send me your Son, Jesus, to be my friend, to walk with me, and to teach me your ways.  With Jesus by my side it will be much easier to see and follow your commands.  Send your Holy Spirit to enlighten me of all your decrees, that I may not only know them, but also live them and share them.  With this help, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, I will continually praise you.  Amen.


Tough Questions, Gospel-Established Answers

There are few things worse than not being able to answer an important question, especially spiritual ones. Whether it's talking with someone or just doing some soul-searching, it's painful to be uncertain. We've begun a Bible study series on Romans which will help us answer tough questions. Each week, the Holy Spirit will give us gospel-established answers that help us tackle the tough questions others ask us about our faith... and the questions we ask ourselves. Today's question is: "What does God say about homosexuality?"
