The fluffy snowflakes slowly circled in a captivating dance, slowly falling to earth. Two little snowflakes flying close to each other struck up a conversation and to avoid drifting away from each other, they held each other’s hands.

Gomer’s marriage to Hosea is one big, real-life parallelism of God’s thoughts and feelings about Israel and Judah at that time. Hosea was a prophet whom God spoke to about his frustration with Israel’s worship of baal and unfaithfulness to him. He considers Israel to be like his wife, for whom he provides abundantly, but […]

The story of the Samaritan woman is quite the incredible one because she was chosen to be the gateway through which many more Samaritans would come to believe in Jesus.
