God’s Plan for Broken Man

God has a plan for broken people. As our Redeemer, He came into this world reconciling Himself to all mankind. The Lord has given us the pathway to come to Him through the Cross. This passage in Isaiah is a prophecy of the coming Messiah, Jesus Christ, Himself. Isaiah gives us a message of hope […]

The Places Where We Are Sent

Our work is missional. Each of us are called to be missionaries. The Apostle Peter urges us to let the lust of the flesh leave us, so that we can love our neighbor. In fact, Jesus did not send us to fix people. He sent us to love them. People are not going to know […]
