I.W.G. Experiencing His Grace

Exodus 34:6-7 Intimacy with God is life’s most satisfying reality. Nothing can rob you of intimacy with God, except idolatry. Anything that captures your heart and imagination more than God is an idol. Idolatry is always the reason we ever do anything wrong. Idolatry isn’t one sin among many but the root of all of our sins.

Power to Change

Luke 11:14-32 One of the biggest obstacles to people coming to Christianity is that they think that they already know what it is all about.

He will bring Complete Change to every area of your life so that you can experience not just a quantity of life but a quality of life unlike anything else (John 10:10b; 17:3). This is less about circumstances and more about our character because our circumstances matter far…
