Word on Wednesday – by John Mason ‘Doubt…?’ – November 7, 2018 There is much in life that can challenge our faith in God – sickness and suffering, famines and earthquakes, terrorism and conflict. ‘How can a good God allow it?’ we ask.

The Small Things and God’s Grace   Just a couple of weeks ago, Steve Burchett and I loaded up his van and drove to Oklahoma from Kansas City for retreat with the leaders of a well-known international ministry I won’t name.

Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all. Colossians 3:9–11 God is called the “God of truth” (Isaiah 65:16). The Holy Spirit is the “Spirit of truth” (John 16:13). Christ said, “I am … the...
