Jesus defines the church, but the church does not define Jesus.
God will not let pastors flatter his people instead of taking responsibility for the many forms of abuse in his church.
Being more and more aware of my own depravity simply leads me more and more to the cross.
I need to be reminded that even though my little children will one day be grown, joy in Jesus is possible now, will be possible then, and will be fully complete in heaven forever.
Discipleship is about helping a disciple faithfully relate to Jesus, not to you.
