What God Has to Say about Your Dreams

If you’ve been following along over the last several months, you’ve been part of a journey examining some weighty subjects: lordship, holiness, and the true nature of grace, to name a few. We’ve addressed some challenging questions about our perspective and the kind of life each of us has been living. Today I want to […]


The Two Things We Need to Do Holiness Well

Suppose you had a family member you loved dearly but who was constantly disrespectful, destructive, and untrustworthy. Though you love this person, my guess is you would find it hard to enjoy their company. If they were unwilling to change, you’d have to set some healthy boundaries in the relationship.
