2Corinthians 5:20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. We’re taking a bit of a side-trip excursion from our cruise through the book of Acts. The intent is to pause and examine some of [...]
1Corinthians 11:1 Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ. In Scripture, discipleship is synonymous with leadership. Leadership can rightly be distilled down to the following axiom: Inspire by example. No one has ever inspired as much as Jesus the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Most of [...]
