What can we really expect the Spirit to do for us, today, in our world?
Phil Ware writes about Jesus' promise of the Holy Spirit focusing on John 14 and Jesus' promise to not leave us as orphans but to come to us and show himself to us and be in us and make his home with us.
Are we willing to live up to our religious-sounding talk?
Phil Ware challenges us to leave behind intention and move out into the world of action as we seek care for our broken world and overcome the criticism that we are uncaring hypocrites who are not willing to help
Phil Ware reminds us that God can make us better after we have been broken and use us to do his work in the Kingdom because of two things: forgiveness we receive in Jesus through baptism and the power of the Holy Spirit.
How can we know if our lives make a difference and truly matter?
Phil Ware helps us to better understand both Mark's message about where true life is found and also his outline and organization of his gospel around the hinges to the story provided by the stories of two blind men that Jesus heals.
