We are fragile and weak vessels equipped with the power of God and the weapons of righteousness for a mission that will be wholly accomplished by God's utilization of us.
The orientation of our hearts as Christians in America is often: “I will stay here unless I am called there.” But, what if we changed that perspective to: “I will go there unless I am called to stay here," and "if I stay here, it will be because I can send or give in a way that makes a bigger impact there." Let us first examine closely the desires of our hearts and see if we might then have a more accurate picture of who we are truly following: the gifts of God or the giver Himself.
Being known by God means He is the author of your salvation, leading to a humble praise and true knowledge of God that works itself out in the serving and loving of others for their edification in Christ.
Everyone, including our leaders, are a people prone to wander who daily forget the God who created us.

The cycles of apostasy are many, but we weren’t left without a shepherd to lead us back to the fold of God.
Leviticus— the book many Christians dread during their Bible reading plan. We push this book to the bottom of our favorites and give up on trying to understand it. My goal is to show why that would be a tragic mistake.

God’s glory would be much greater than a temple. He sent His son whose body, a symbolic temple, would become destroyed and raised again to emanate a glory far greater than the former one.
Four girls, one room, one faith. Utilizing unexpected community to advance His Kingdom.
The work it took to understand Proverbs 14:4 is fitting due to its meaning, and we should never give up on understanding God's Word or will for our lives.
