Which Part Are You?

by PGBC

1 Corinthians 12:14 – 17 “For the body is not one member, but many. 15 If the foot says, “Because I am not a hand, I am not a part of the body,” it is not for this reason any the less a part of the body. 16 And if the ear says, “Because I […]

Why is Jesus the only way to be saved?

by PGBC

That is a relevant question considering the many religions that are in the world today. The answer is straightforward – Jesus solved the problem that separates us from God, no one else did. Imagine that you were riding a bicycle. As you are pedaling the bicycle, the chain comes off and you can no longer […]

The Good Shepherd

I Said I Was Sorry

by PGBC

What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may increase? 2 May it never be! How shall we who died to sin still live in it? Romans 6:1-2 Recently one of our little ones was in trouble for biting. While I had her in time-out, she repeatedly kept telling me […]

In the Quiet Place

by PGBC

Mark 1:35 In the early morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went away to a secluded place, and was praying there. From the time I was a child I have enjoyed hunting wild game. There’s just something about getting up early and heading into the woods quietly among […]
