Compelled by Love

Living on Mission Sharing the Gospel is motivated by love. Jesus came to earth because of our desperate need, but He also was compelled by His deep love for you and me. Love is what drove Him to the cross. Take a moment to reflect on the words Jesus shared with Nicodemus during their nighttime […]

Living on Mission

You were made to make an eternal impact. God didn’t save you to simply live a life that was safe, predictable and cautious. He saved you to leave a legacy of faith — passed down from one person to another — that will change generations long after you are gone. I can say from personal […]

The Attractiveness of Hospitality

Being a friend begins with hospitality. Levi hadn’t been a believer for long. He had just made the radical decision to leave behind his old life as a tax collector and follow Jesus, but his heart was still burdened for his friends who were far from God.
