It is so remarkably tempting to build our lives around what we can achieve and what others will think. However, what are you investing in that will last beyond this world? The truth is that there is only a relationship with Jesus will last beyond this world, and it is your heart that matters most to God.
Pastors Brandon Rickard and John Maguire look at John 1 and uncover what the coming of Christ says about God's love for you! Christmas is the time where we remember that while we look at circling what is important to us, God drew a circle around the whole world by sending His son as a light into the darkness.
Is your calling just your job or is it something more? When you look back on your work was it just a job, or can see you see that God has placed you for such a task as this to achieve something of eternal significance?

As our look at Romans 12-15 comes to a close we look at the difference it makes when we allow our minds to be fused to Christ. As we fall deeper in love with Jesus we gain greater ability to connect to others despite the barriers that may exist or the hits we may take.
