The work of Jesus continues. The ministry of Jesus continues through us, through the presence of His Spirit. We really are the hands and feet of Jesus, His chosen method for continuing what He started

Serving His Kingdom is a central part of growing as a follower of Jesus. It is both a response to the work of Jesus in our lives as well as a pathway to growth.

This week we continue to look at why we do what we do and how we do it. Lasting discipleship requires a process, giving focus to our activities. The thing Satan wants to do is keep us busy doing things that don’t matter in eternity. That’s NOT what we’re going to be doing.

We’ve been looking at some things that can wipe out our relationships; things that can wreck the emotional connection we all desire and need. God created us to need each other, to grow relationships. We were not created to do life alone. Selfishness surrounds us, pushes at us and pulls us toward destructive ends. The […]
