Against The Flow

Aligning with Jesus means standing against the world. In (1 Peter 1.16-17 NLT), Peter quotes from the Old Testament … “For the Scriptures say, ‘You must be holy, because I am holy.’ Then he adds, “So you must live in reverent fear of him during your time as ‘foreigners in the land’.”  He is not speaking about the […]

The Center of Your Heart

First Steps in Your Disciple-Making Journey Among the ruins of ancient Rome sits a small dungeon still intact. In its prime, it was nothing more than a dark, circular, underground hole with plastered walls and a single opening on top where they lowered prisoners into confinement. It was a lonely place — a desperate place. […]

What Does It Mean to Make Jesus the Center of My Life?

Imagine over 2 million Jewish slaves wandering in the wilderness. For 400 years they were enslaved in Egypt, providing the hard labor force to support the luxurious lifestyle of its citizens.
