Rejoice, Intimate, Idenity – and So On and So On…

BY ADAM POWERS: After defining and seeing the great mercy and grace of God throughout the Bible for the past two days, today I ask a simple yet challenging question: so what? To ask the ‘so what?’ question is normally an easy thing to answer, but asking it in regard to God’s mercy and grace it is both simple and challenging. Simple because the answer is obvious.

Four Ways God Punishes Sin

BY ADAM POWERS: Lastly, after spending two days on the origin of sin and the character of sin, today I'll briefly discuss the punishment of sin. This is the result of sin in man.

Men may make light of it but God doesn't, for He will punish all sin both in this life and in the life to come.…
