He is unseen. He is invisible. He operates behind the scenes to save and rescue sinners. However, this does not mean that what He does is unimportant. The Bible tells us that He...

The man asked why, and the police officer said that he had seen the man utter some angry words at an intersection and pound on his steering wheel during a traffic stop. His face had flushed red with anger when he had to wait at a red light and, the police officer added, that he had a "...

It is said that the great violin player, Paganini, once played an entire concert on one violin string. As he began, he had all four strings, but shortly into it, one of them broke and then another and then another until he only had one left. He was forced to make use of it and, according to eyewitnesses, the result of his performance was staggering. Some in the audience ev...

John 13

Feet have never been a very attractive part of the body. Throughout human history, they have been neglected, ignored, forgotten, and walked upon. We pay attention to our face but we do not pay attention to our feet. We put rings and bracelets on our hands but our feet do not get equal treatment. Which is why Jesus' actions in John 13 are so strange. Verse 5 says that, dur...

Vision Sunday - Evangelism

Vision Sunday - Aug. 2018 - Web

The third point of GFC's vision statement says: We proclaim grace upon grace through evangelism. Because Jesus Christ has commissioned us to proclaim His grace, it is our vision to evangelize the lost. Grace is best seen in evangelism. When you have experienced the unmerited favour of God, you cannot help but tell others about it. When you have had your sins forgiven a...

A poor Indian shepherd was once asked how many sheep he had. To which he replied, "I don't know because I can't count." He was then asked how he knew that they were all there in the field. To which he replied, "Because I know their names." In John 10, Jesus says that "I am the good shepherd, and I know My own and My own know Me" (verse 14). He also says, "A stranger they ...
