  • Stewardship: Trusting An Unchanging God

    Contributed on Feb 22, 2002
    based on 329 ratings

    Our love for God is best measured by the use of our resources. God wants us to offer our entire selves as living sacrifices – sold out and on fire for God through and through.

  • The Power Of Shared Suffering

    Contributed on Nov 26, 2000
    based on 113 ratings

    Because Jesus understands our suffering, we do not suffer alone.

For centuries we have recognized that Jesus was all God and all man, but here it more
