Division within the body of Christ is ultimately a heart issue. But it’s also, in part, a culture issue.
The depth of our roots in Christ will be exposed by how we respond when we get punched in the face.
I know that he sees my every failure. He knows my every sin against him. Yet, he stands in my defense.
Many churches are pursuing a bit more "simple church." We’ve gotten the memo that activity does not equal godliness.
The promises of God are not just promises to visit us with favor and blessings.

Maybe he’s not the fool; maybe it’s me. Maybe it’s my eyesight. Is it possible that I’m conversing with the One who can draw water without a bucket?
The devil doesn’t care one bit about preventing us from doing works for the Lord; he cares about preventing belief and trust in our union with Christ.
