By Brad Quiring on July 15, 2018

In one of the most controversial stories of the Bible, one might accuse Elisha of overreacting out of his vanity. But, look at the whole story and you’ll see a deep-rooted disrespect not for Elisha, but for God and His Gospel.

Highest Honour: Honouring the Love

By Brad Quiring on May 20, 2018

Love stands out in most people's minds when they think of marriage. The image is usually rose-coloured romanticism but not real love. Romantic love definitely has its place in marriage, but the real love that God commands reflects the attitude of Jesus Christ. Marriage is the place where the husband and wife exercise true agape love for one another, sacrificially...

Highest Honour: Honouring One Another

By Brad Quiring on May 13, 2018

God created marriage for two to become one. A man and a woman, two distinct people, both created in the image of God, brought together by God to become one.

The Cross: My Cost from Christ’s Cross

By Brad Quiring on March 25, 2018

The cross was very costly for Jesus. It cost Him His life. It was costly for God the Father, as it cost Him His son. But all this was done out of love for us. What will our response be? Do we live for ourselves and today, or do we live for Someone who is so much higher and greater?...
