Surrender is absolutely imperative, and it is impossible to live the victorious Christian life without the issue […]

I think love can be summed up with two words; sacrifice and risk. During Passion Week, and especially on The Cross Jesus demonstrated what love looks like.

Jesus said in Revelation 21:5, “Behold, I am making all things new.” And He said, “Write, for these things are faithful faithful and true.” That is such awesome news.

2 Cor. 12:9 , And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. 10 Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with […]
