I’d Rather Make A Difference

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.

Who’s At Fault?

Have you ever been out to dinner at a beautiful place to eat and, as the food comes from the kitchen, you notice it’s not exactly what you ordered? Maybe your steak is overcooked. Perhaps your burger doesn’t have the bacon you added. Maybe there’s a side that’s missing.

But… Who’s at fault?
