The Life of Samuel

At a time when prophecies and visions were rare, Samuel heard what he first believed to be Eli calling him during the night. The Lord called Samuel three times before he answered, and then the Lord gave him a message to relay to Eli. The following day, Samuel took his first leap of faith, telling Eli everything, even though the message was bad news for Eli and his family. Samuel’s credibility as a prophet spread throughout Israel, and God continued to reveal His Word to His people through Samuel.

The Risen Jesus

Easter is  the turning point in all of human history. What began with God’s innocent Son murdered without a fair trial, ended in the ultimate victory. Not a victory of justice or political power, but a victory of life over death.  A victory of submission over strength, of forgiveness over law.
