Daily Scripture Reading: Wednesday, March 22

Romans 7:7-20 7 What shall we say, then? Is the law sinful? Certainly not! Nevertheless, I would not have known what sin was had it not been for the law. For I would not have known what coveting really was if the law had not said, “You shall not covet.” 8 But sin, seizing the...

Undergraduate Interns: Not A One-Trick Pony

I was a sophomore in college when I first heard about the Flood internship. Every time the internship was brought up on a Sunday, I thought it just wasn’t for me.

Friday Stories: Community is Hard

Isn’t it strange how some people’s dreams can be others’ nightmares? Most people’s reason for craving community is my exact reason for resisting it: being known.

Romans 4:1-12 1 What then shall we say that Abraham, our forefather according to the flesh, discovered in this matter? 2 If, in fact, Abraham was justified by works, he had something to boast about—but not before God. 3 What does Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” 4...
