God Always Has A Plan: What’s Your Part?

God always has a plan. Always! In fact, He plans pretty far out. The Scriptures tell us that before He created the world, He already established The Plan of Salvation. He put into motion that Jesus would become the Intermediator: fully man, fully God. Yes, pretty far out – He planned the whole thing. You know the story:

  • virgin birth,
  • living and growing up as a human,
  • ministry,
  • miracles,
  • suffering,

7 Points Confirming God Has Chosen YOU!

God has chosen you to be His precious child. His friend. His family heir. You are very special to God – not because of various unique aspects of who you are, but because God has decided it is so.
