The truth about resolutions.

the truth about resolutions.

separator

The word “resolution” betrays itself right from the start. It sounds like a new beginning, but it promises an end — a “resolving” of things that are broken — the hope of being perfect and finished — the assurance that we can bring conclusion to ourselves. In Colossians 2:2, Paul makes a resolution for the […]

“It feels like a huge weight has been lifted off of my chest.”

An excerpt from a personal ONE story we received from a single mom at one of Grace’s campuses. The One initiative has been playing out in my life over the course of the past several weeks. Money is a source of constant stress for me. On September 25th, I dropped a prayer request in the […]

Many times we fail to represent and demonstrate his love and mercy to our neighbors, friends, family, or coworkers. We seldom steward our time or our gifts to […]

How to Talk to God.

separator

How to talk to God. How do you sum this up in a blog post? Or even a four-week message series? The impossibility of such an answer leaves me somewhere between frozen and grateful. If talking to God looked the same for everyone, every time then I would most certainly treat it as another box […]

What the Resurrection Means

separator

Because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9) The meaning of the resurrection is that God is for us. He aims to close ranks with us. He aims to overcome all our sense of abandonment […]
