THE POWER OF JESUS’ CALL

The gospel of Jesus Christ is not good advice, it is good news. This is an important difference. Advice is something we hear, we consider and then decide how much of it, if any, we want to follow. If someone says “let me give you some advice about how you should get weeds out of […]
