There Is One Mediator Between God And Man (Hint: It’s Not You!)

There Is One Mediator Between God And Man

I was sent this funny story recently, it made me laugh but it also made me think.

He told the them about sheep, that they weren’t smart and needed lots of guidance, and that a shepherd’s job was to stay close to the sheep, protect them from wild animals and keep them from wandering off and doing dumb things that would get them hurt or killed.

#030: Did God Forsake Jesus On The Cross? [Podcast]

Did God Forsake Jesus On The Cross?

Why Looking Like God Isn't Always Good

“You are just like your father”

Two phrases few people want to hear.

But like it or not, in many ways we all grow up and look a little like our parents.

Those who raised us and with whom we share the same DNA.

It’s a bit like God isn’t it?

Except we all want to “grow up” to look like God.
