How do you really make a difference I’ll make this pretty simple: look to Jesus. Jesus saw you in a mess. He left the comforts of heaven. Released His rightful claim to equality with the Father and came to earth as a human, which He designed and created. He was the way out of our mess, but that would require the willful sacrifice of His own life. And… That’s just what He did. He looked at the people and the problem and made Himself the sacrifice to provide a solution.
Making a difference will always look like Jesus.

Have you grown tired? Is life coming against you? Are you trying to make the right steps but experiencing resistance on the journey? During this episode, Kevin takes some time to encourage you to not give up. Our tendency is to quit when things get tougher. The Scriptures show us why we shouldn’t quit! Listen and be encouraged!
Even though we teach our kids to see that there is a standard of right and wrong that exists outside of them, we too often try to live by determining for ourselves what is right and wrong.
