All of us grow up. And as we grow up we outgrow certain things. But it doesn't matter how old you are, how smart you are, or how strong you are: you never outgrow the gospel.
Most of us don't get too excited about going to a meeting. However, there was one meeting 2000 years ago that changed everything! When Paul and his delegation from visited the apostles in Jerusalem, it wasn't just a friendly visit: they had urgent business that needed sorting out. The outcome of that meeting touches all of us even in our own day and age.
Galatians is no ordinary letter. It's DYNAMITE. Time and time again Paul's letter to the church in Galatia has been used by God to "blow up" how people think about God, life, and faith. This little letter changed the world 2000 years ago, and it can do it again! Join us at St. J&B as we study Paul's Letter to the Galatians together this June/July.
You must embrace the experiences of your life — the good ones and the bad ones, - and stop running from your past if God’s going to use them for good in your life and the lives of others.
Has God shaped you primarily to be a talker, feeler, thinker, or doer? Your personality type says a lot about how God wants to use you in the world.
All of us have certain abilities. Knowing what you’re good at will help reveal what God wants you to do with your life. What has God wired you to be and to do?
God is a passionate God, and so are we! God wants you to listen to your heart and to use your passions, desires, and dreams to make a difference in the world.
Every Spirit-filled person is given “Spiritual Gifts.” How do you start using the spiritual gifts God put inside of you? First, you’ve got to know what they are before you can use them.
God made you unique, and there’s nobody else like you. He didn’t make any mistakes when he made you. Knowing our unique SHAPE enables us to find our purpose in life.
All of us need to be rescued from something. On Easter Sunday we remember the greatest rescue mission of all time.
