The Good News then is the Good News now!

The Father God sent Jesus into a world of unbelief, rebelliousness and disobedience to the Father’s heart and ways.  He sent His Son not to condemn the world, for the world was already condemned and made a slave to sin and death (see John 3:17).  But in the darkness came a ray of light, Immanuel,

Lessons of learning happen best in difficulty soaked in humility

It’s hard to work through difficult issues, especially with difficult people.

Treasure in Earthen Vessels

“Partnering with Jesus in His mission exposes our deficits and gives us an opportunity to grow. Jesus matures those on mission.

I don’t get the Gospel.

I don’t fully understand how good God is, how lost I am without Him or how good and in right standing I now am because I have been hidden in Christ.  I forget how real God is, how near He is, how far I am and yet how close I am to Him. It is
