  • Logos

  • Looking to Jesus

  • Lord

    Philippians 2:5–11

    The early Christians endured martyrdom before confessing, “Caesar is lord.” They knew that Jesus alone was divine, and they were unwilling to allow anyone to usurp His status. Our modern culture offers many competing lords for worship. Pray that you ...Read More

  • Lower Than the Angels

    Hebrews 2:5–8a

  • Made Like His Brothers

    Hebrews 2:17

  • Neo-Gnosticism

    Colossians 1:24–29

  • Once for All

    Hebrews 9:23–28
