This series seeks to reveal God's truth by examining lesser-known aspects of His Word. While theology can often be complex and overwhelming, we seek to try to make God's Word accessible by distributing it in bite-sized morsels. We here at Growth Project hope Five Minutes of Truth will inspire you to think, to explore His Word...but most grow.

Promise Not Made
There are a myriad of amazing promises that God makes throughout the 66 books that make up the Bible. Putting aside the fact that the God Who spoke the universe into existence would make any promises at all to us, it is estimated (by some) that there are over 3,000 specific promises God makes throughout the Bible. Yet despite all […]

Growing through our failures
The unfortunate truth is…this seems to be a common view of God. That not only does He relish the idea of punishment, but that He actually enjoys dispensing it. But to be honest, I just don’t see that in the Bible. Oh, I do see punishment, but I see divine judgment as a last resort for God, not an immediate knee-jerk reaction.

The Woman at the Well
The story related to us in John chapter 4 is often referred to as the story about the woman at the well. We don’t even know her name despite the fact that Jesus spent an amazing amount of time talking to this one person. In fact, you would be hard pressed to find another point in the Bible where Jesus […]

Joseph and God’s Will
In order to see how we can be within God’s will while feeling like we are way outside of it…we need to go back to a familiar story…the story of Joseph and his brothers as relayed to us in Genesis chapters 37-50. As we know, Joseph was the next to youngest son of Jacob…and one of his 12 sons who […]

Something God Cannot Do?
Contrary to popular belief…God cannot do anything? That idea is a consistent misunderstanding among a great number of both Believers and non-believers. It is not uncommon at all to hear many people say: You know…God can do just about anything. And though I believe that most people understand the crux of the statement when it is made, it is not, […]

The Garden and God’s Grace
When God drove Adam and Eve out of the Garden of Eden…it was not to administer punishment…but to bestow grace? We are all very familiar with the story of Adam and Eve. After God created them in perfect circumstances under perfect conditions, it was not long before a serious problem arose. In fact, it was the most serious problem the […]

Mephibosheth a Picture of Grace
One of the most precious and important pictures of God’s grace, mercy and salvation involves a man that most people…including most Believers…have never heard of. The man I am referring to is named Mephibosheth…and if you know who he is…give yourself extra credit. Most folks have never heard of him and as such…have never heard how much he…is very much […]

Lazarus and Jesus the reluctant miracle worker.
As readers of the Bible, we can become so fixated on God’s miracles that we often miss the important teachings related to those miracles? We all love a good miracle. The Bible is full of such events that show us both the all powerful command God has over everything…and the all powerful love He has for us. Even today, Jesus […]
