    Join us throughout the month of January for regular episodes in this podcast series as we explore the depth of what the Bible says about the Grace of God!

    What do you think of when you think of grace? Unmerited favor? Forgiveness? Charity? This episode is the first in a new series we will look at throughout this month. The grace of God is so much more than most of us realize or have been taught. That is why we want to focus on … <a href="https://jbshreve.com/discovering-grace-of-god-all-over-again-for-the-first-time/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

    Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! This latest podcast episode in our series, looking at the book of Ephesians takes on the topic of our relationships with others.

    In our last episode in this podcast series on the book of Ephesians, we looked at the alternative lifestyles and realities born from the dust or from the breath of God. We continue along that theme in today’s episode as we look at a new kind of human God intended us to be and the … <a href="https://jbshreve.com/a-new-kind-of-human/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

    The nature of human life described by Paul in the book of Ephesians often does not match our perceived realities.

    For some reason, many of our assumptions and perspectives about the church are far, far less than what the Bible describes. In this podcast episode continuing our series and walk through the book of Ephesians, we look at the descriptions of the church laid out in the New Testament. We were called to more.

    There is an interesting verse in Ephesians 3:19 whose mere verbiage invites us to inquire more about what it means. It is part of one of the long run-on sentences that Paul liked to use in his writings, so I will cite the whole verse so we can see what we are looking at here. … <a href="https://jbshreve.com/knowledge-that-surpasses-knowledge/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

    God wants us to see, to know, to understand the truth. And that truth has nothing to do with this world. We are surrounded by illusions, distractions, and lies. In this podcast devotional, continuing our walk through the themes of the book of Ephesians, we look at the requirement for spiritual sight.    I pray … <a href="https://jbshreve.com/he-wants-us-to-see/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

    Religion puts the blessings and promises of God far away. There is always something more we have to do, something we must not do, some time that must pass; something always stands between us and the promises of God. That is not what the Bible teaches. It is not the truth Scripture says we get … <a href="https://jbshreve.com/we-get-everything/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read

    Most translations of the Bible translate the word charis to grace. Nothing wrong with that except we have put our Sunday school glasses on and failed to see how big the reality of God’s grace is. Grace is the energy of God. It is His power flowing into our lives when He places His attention on us. … <a href="https://jbshreve.com/the-energy-of-of-god/" rel="noopener noreferrer">Read
