Our conscience. It’s something that each of us have, and yet each person’s conscience is different. The more we can understand it, the better it can help us, not only with our walk with Jesus, but also with our relationships with those around us. Today, let’s look at two questions concerning our conscience. What is…
Through the story of Jonah, we see a display of the mercy of God that goes far beyond what anyone could expect. Not just toward the people of Nineveh, but also toward Jonah himself. Through their story, we see more clearly how merciful God is to us too.

Sharing the Good News of Jesus is all about working together. Each role is important in giving others the chance to hear the Gospel. Wherever you are, you are part of the great mission given to us by Jesus.
Our freedom to do certain things is important to us. But there is a different kind of freedom that is even more valuable than those freedoms. Once you experience it, you’ll discover that it’s worth sharing, even if it means letting go of a few of those other freedoms.
