Not only does Jesus pursue the lost around us, he pursues the ‘lost’ in us, seeking to heal and restore every aspect of our lives. What is Jesus pursuing in you?

Let’s dive deep into Jesus’ family as we begin this Christmas season and see how our past does not define God’s power in our lives. Shame doesn’t have a hold on you, because of Jesus.
Some of the hardest times to praise is when we need to praise the most. Think of Paul and Silas in the book of Acts chapter sixteen.
