You Cannot Serve Both God and Theology

Excellent and balanced article. Knowing God better and loving him more. So often, knowledge gets stuck in our heads but never travels to our hearts.

I have known people that could quote chapter and verse, talk about relationship, prayer, and grace; and yet miss the heart of God… Then, others who couldn’t even quote John 3:16, yet had a more profound faith and understanding of mercy, grace, forgiveness and love, than one with a PhD in Theology.

God promised to write his Word on our hearts, not just on the pages we can read.

Faith Over Feelings: What Are You Led By?

This is a huge issue, especially in our current culture, where how we feel rules everything!

I have a teenage daughter who particularly struggles in this area… I continue to impress on her and myself as well that our feelings lie to us, and we need to trust Hod and Scripture before how we feel.

Some feelings are indeed valid, however it takes discernment and sometimes wise counsel to find the truth.
