The Great Equalizer

In a world filled with inequality and division Jesus’ cross and resurrection make us all equal. We all have sinned, we all are loved by God, we have all been given the opportunity to be free and we all have been called to a mission. I pray that we will all embrace the equality of...

Risk and Reward: Value

When it comes to risk value is the key. Is what may be gained more valuable to us than what may be lost? Romans 5 makes our value to God very clear, “While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” If we will be very honest we will realize that we hold no risk...
