Who do you trust?

Dear Redeeming Grace, In times of difficulty, a good question to ask is "In what or whom am I trusting right now?" Psalm 9:10 says this: "And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you."

Praying for Ukraine

Dear Redeeming Grace, A few years back, at our annual youth camp, I was introduced to a helpful book called Praying the Bible. Donald Whitney, the author, walked us through the process of reading a passage of a Psalm, then responding in prayer using some of the very words or truths from the passage.

Strength Through Fellowship

Dear Redeeming Grace, In his sermon on fellowship, Jason shared this great quote from J.I. Packer: "A body in which the blood does not circulate well is always below par, and fellowship corresponds to the circulation of the blood in the body of Christ. The church gains strength through fellowship, and loses strength without it." - J.I. Packer By God's grace we always wa...
