Domino Effect

One thing I was just thinking about right now is that I feel like there is so much kingdom-work to be done, even in what God is calling me to do personally. There are an infinite number of things that need to be taken care of, and millions if not billions of people that still need to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ. (more…)

IF / THEN

So an interesting thing happened recently. For my men’s group reading, we’re now back in the book of Matthew after completing the Old Testament.

I don’t / didn’t have the technique, training, education, or background.

Happy Monday everyone! As we begin the work week, I’m sure that many of you feel the same way when I say that sometimes work isn’t that fun.
