If this remains a cliché, we don't benefit from the wisdom that can bring incredible benefit. I'm really cognizant right now of God's grace that is available in all of our lives.

It’s not because of the boxes we have checked. It’s by His Spirit. It’s not about rules and regulations, it’s about relationship with Jesus. That’s the key.

I was praying this morning and came upon a realization of the Kingdom. We win people to Jesus by honoring them, especially those the world has discarded.

We hear, see, and experience the fact that we are all creatures of habit. It really can be a good thing, because then the people in our lives can count on us. But, God on the other hand wants us (needs us) to be ambassadors of change on the earth. He shows us in Isaiah 43:19, that He will do a...
