In our lives we can move through the extremes of emotion relatively quickly… from the high heights to the lowest of lows… life is a roller coaster of emotion. As we continue to see the story of Exodus unfold, we will see how we often respond to the ups and downs of life and what […]
We love stories of unlikely heroes. God’s people need a hero and we have seen how God raised up Moses to be such a saviour, but he is the most unlikely man to pull it off. A murderer, rejected by his people, and an exile in a foreign land. Even Moses doubts his credentials. But […]
Pharaoh has set himself up in opposition to God. The people are suffering under his heavy yoke of slavery and barbaric genocide.

It would be easy to skip over as merely housekeeping, but there is a sense in which the mundane greetings and thoughts make the message of 1 Corinthians more accessible to us, people […]
