Prophetic judgment: When fear fails

January 21, 2012

Devotion for May 30, 2005

May 30, 2005

Devotion for May 30, 2005 The author of the book of Esther cleverly uses many literary devices to emphasize certain themes and ideas in the book.

Faithfulness: The Unfailing Promise of God

June 23, 2013

Faithfulness: The Unfailing Promise of God “He’s a chip off the old block.” “She’s just like her mother.” So we comment on the striking similarities between children and their parents.
