Wrestling Against God’s Authority

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth, sings the hymn of creation in Genesis chapter one. The part of the hymn says man was given power to name all living creatures as he pleases.

Take up your personal Challenges

Jesus asked Peter, ‘Do you love me?’ and he used a particular verb for love, agapao. When Peter said he loved the lord, he used a different verb for love, phileo. Jesus asked Peter thrice and gave him a challenge to take care of the flock. Peter was challenged to provide good and quality leadership for God’s people.
