Live Well – From the Shadows to the Substance (Quest for God’s Will, part 2/4)

Looking For God’s Will?- Steep Yourself in God-Reality (Quest for God’s Will, part 1/4)

Jesus is calling you and me to be his followers:“Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You’re not in the driver’s seat—I am. Don’t run from suffering; embrace it.

(Re)making Jesus Christ the Center of My Life, part 4/5.

This is the fourth part of a series looking at how to (re)make Jesus Christ the center of our lives. We’ve talked about focusing on God, repenting and confessing our sins.
