The Work of the Ekklesia

For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.” (1 Corinthians 3:9)   Paul told the brethren in Corinth that they were all laborers together with God and that they were God’s husbandry. The Greek word for husbandry meaning, the produce of a cultivated field, and that they were […]

Discernment

Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. (Matthew 10:16) This is a huge topic for discernment encompasses so much; it is about having wisdom, knowledge, right understanding, discretion, prudence, good judgment, perception, insight.

Lamentations 3:22 It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. 3:23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. God in His […]
