    God’s people aren’t immune from grumbling and murmuring, but those who wish to lead effectively will pray for divine solutions in handling dissension.

They were filling up Jerusalem to overflowing with excitement about Jesus’ resurrection and the presence ...read more

    One in a series on Rick Warren’s Purpose-Driven Life book. Our mission is to drive with others toward a destination. But between invitation and destination there is hesitation, born of diversion, dissension, and dissipation.

    People who are on a mission move; people who are on a mission let nothing stop them. They are not distracted by side issues, they focus all their energies on getting their mission accomplished. People who are on a mission do whatever it takes to get to their goal. But people who are not on a ...read more

    The word “gospel” means good news. We know the heart of the gospel is the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ, but what exactly is the good news about that?
