I'M ADOPTED!

Miriam Webster defines adoption as "to take by choice into a relationship". Not only did God send His Son to pay the debt we could never pay, but he also adopts us as His own. As we watch the Gregoires bring Trey into their family, we can all catch a glimpse of the beautiful picture Paul paints by using the term adoption. "The word adoption, like the word justifica...

CULTURALLY CHRISTIAN? OR ACTUALLY A CHRIST-FOLLOWER?

Sometimes the truth stings a little bit! I recently read this post and, like iron that sharpens another piece of iron (Proverbs 27:17), I felt sharper.
