Loving God

1 John 4:19  “We love because he first loved us.”  With just those seven words, John encapsulates one of the most important and foundational truths in the Christian faith and if we are serious about being fully equipped as Jesus’ disciples, this truth must dominate...

The Divine Romance

True discipleship is a divine romance; it’s a sacred dance; it's a journey of surrender; it's a daily journey to the cross. It's about us embracing the most privileged opportunity we have been given which is to die to ourselves and trust God for our resurrection and...
