    Sometimes we feel like God has to completely change us in order to use us. Paul shows us that God takes the background, weaknesses, and even difficulties and uses them for His kingdom, if we let Him.

    Who are you as a person? Who are you as a Christian? Do those two questions get two different responses from you? I think often times we think that when we come to Christ, Jesus basically considers us to be a blank slate that needs to be redrawn into the character of Jesus and that everything about ...read more

For some people its fishing – they not only have specific flies to catch specific fish in ...read more

He takes the time to describe his rights as an apostle and minister, and also his sacrifice as that same apostle and minister. In essence, Paul embraces his rights, ...read more
