Free Hugs and Finding Joy in One Another

God delights in his children’s enjoyment of one another. True, Christ alone is sufficient to meet all our needs. Yet, God has designed us for relationship not only with himself but also with others of our kind.

Appreciating Men but Glorifying God Alone

worshipI think it’s fine and appropriate to quote from Christian speakers and authors we have benefited from. But while gratefully acknowledging I have benefited from these men and women, I do not put them on a pedestal.

God’s Limitless Love

heartThe apostle John says we know what God’s love is because of the unthinkable price Jesus paid for us, to turn us into God’s own children, fully acceptable in his sight. God’s love abounds. It proliferates. It’s overflowing, even excessive—something all sufferers need to hear.

C. S. Lewis on the Vulnerability of Love

C.S. LewisI appreciated what C. S. Lewis wrote in The Four Loves about the vulnerability of love:

Writing as Ministry First, Vocation Second

WritingYesterday I made my February 1 deadline for the Courageous novel. I sent it off 11:56 p.m. Pacific time—hated to waste 4 minutes, but I needed a margin in case it got stuck in my outbox and I had to reboot. :)

Many thanks to all of you who prayed. There’s still much editing to come, but I’m grateful for God's grace and kindness in an exhausting project that has consumed the last four months.

February Giveaway: 90 Days of God’s Goodness

90 Days of God's GoodnessHere at the EPM office, it’s always fun for our staff when Randy’s new books arrive.
