Life is a paradox. We want to plan for the future and provide for our loved ones but must also learn to live in the “now.” We want to enjoy living our lives and explore everything yet we have a deep sense to fulfill our call and only live for the Lord.

I’ve just returned from two weeks in Europe where I ministered in the Netherlands and spent time with my family seeing some sites. Sara and I worked it out with our kid’s school for Sydney and Reese to join us. I have looked forward to the day when my entire family could travel with me on ministry trips.

There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short
Doesn’t it feel great to be free from religion? It’s so wonderful to awaken to faith-righteousness and know that God is no longer holding your sins against you because he’s changed you at you core.
