Our Study in 1 Corinthians moves to the “Love Chapter”

Lesson 31: 1 Corinthians 13:1-3 “We Are Nothing Without Love” – What the world calls love doesn’t compare with the amazing kind of love our God has for us, and that he causes to grow in the hearts of the people he redeems by grace. [Studies in 1 Corinthians – full index of the studies so far]

March 14th was Pi Day

The value of Pi (π) is the result of dividing the circumference of a circle by its diameter. Its value is often shortened to 3.14 so the date 3/14 is “Pi-Day”. The actual number has decimal places that go on infinitely with no repeating patterns. There’s no mistake about this number in 1 Kings 7:23 contrary to what some critics have said. Watch the video through to the end.

Wisdom for the Week

Those who fall into and out of love – haven’t really loved at all.

Fear of what might happen
can keep us from doing
what we should be doing.

The Genevan Institute for Reformed Studies

In the mid 1500’s Geneva became a gathering place for those who wanted to return Christianity to its biblical foundations. Under the leadership of John Calvin scholars, ministers, and concerned students gathered to compare all they believed and practiced with God’s word as preserved in Scripture.

The Genevan Institute for Reformed Studies was founded to continue that practice in our own period of history. Our desire is to apply God’s word to our own lives and to the world around us. Our goal is to reform (reshape) our lives to fit the mold that our Creator has given us in his written word. Read our 2016 Annual Report.
