Living ‘Under Grace’

"Sin shall not be your master, because you are not under law, but under grace" (Romans 6:14). Nearly 2000 years ago, Paul wrote that to Christians, to people he included with himself when he said, "We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life" (Romans 6:4-5).

Down we go scrambling on our hands and knees (with a flashlight or broom handle) in search of that lost item. Oh, I wish God's people would go in search of their worship that way.

You may say, "My worship isn't lost, I go to church." But that's the point. So many have lost their worship and don't even realize it. We go to church ...

Overcoming life’s hurts

One thing the world seems unlikely to ever run out of is broken people. And as long as they exist, there will be a need for Celebrate Recovery, the Christian answer to the 12-step program.

Where the church is united

Last week we began a very important conversation on when and where there needs to be unity and diversity in Christian circles.
