"I AM": Forgiver

(Bulletin article for 04-22-2018, by Mark Stinnett)

Forgiveness is difficult...

A public official might grant a pardon. In doing so he declares that the guilty person will not have to serve his sentence. That might be tricky in a political sense, but in general, the public official was not the object of the crime.

Forgiveness is difficult because it is personal. YOU are the one who was hurt and forgiveness demands that YOU accept the pain and allow the guilty person to go free.

God is a forgiver...He shoulders the pain caused by your sin.

"I AM": Lovingkindness

(Bulletin article for 04-08-2018, by Mark Stinnett)

The spell-checker on my computer doesn't recognize 'lovingkindness' as a word. It wants to split it into two words: loving + kindness. My two 'thick' dictionaries have the compound word with a simple definition: tender affection. Yet, when it was used in the Old Testament, there was a connection that added meaning, a shade of meaning that is not easily translated into English. Take a look at the background and deeper meaning of this beautiful expression that describes the character of God.

"I AM": Grace

(Bulletin article for 04-01-2018, by Mark Stinnett)

Little kids are quite excited to give a gift to one of their parents. Though they are probably not able to explain why, they just love to give something to someone they love.

If you are a parent, you know the same feeling as you give a gift to your child. The gift is an outward expression of the deep inner love that you have for your child, and you are thrilled to be able to give.

God loves to give to his children...it's called 'grace.'

Do you know why he loves to give?

"I AM": God's Divine Character

(Bulletin article for 03-18-2018, by Mark Stinnett)

What do you KNOW about God?

What do you understand...?

I think it is possible for us to respond to God more because of what we know than what we understand. After all, we are not at all like God. So, how can we truly understand God?

Would you like to take your head for a spin...What do you know about God's name: "I Am"?

What do you understand???
