Success is not a fruit of the Spirit
We all need to know and be known
Oh the vapor of it all…
where do we go from here?
Homemade is always better than store bought.
Being right isn’t always right.
We aren’t the saviors for the church in Babujales. Jesus is our savior. We are all in need.
Jesus said “Let the children come to me and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
For a secular world, where Christ was never in their Christmas, there can be no "keeping." The mission fields are no longer in other countries... they are right here. We are called to be missionaries.
As we go through times of transition, and even times where it feels like a desert or a wilderness, both as a church and as individuals, it is helpful to remember that God is here and is in this.
