Let’s face it, we’re not going to convince strangers of anything life changing on social media. Instead of fostering loving conversations, these platforms are often used to spout out judgmental rhetoric without recourse. That’s not Christian like. We’ve drifted so far from what Christians are supposed to do, we look more like the religious pharisees than anything Christ-like. So, today I ask, What does it mean to be a Christian?
Elections can sometimes bring the worst out in people. As Christians we’re called to love and not hate, but how can we do this effectively in this divisive climate? This issue is beyond whether you agree with a candidates politics. If you’re this upset about the election that it’s causing you to lash out against your “friends” then maybe it’s time to check your heart. Let’s dive in.
We tend to extract too much identity from our jobs. That being said we’re spending between a fourth and a third of our lives caught up in work. We struggle to maintain the priorities of God and family with work. Work, however, is often the vehicle God uses to provide for our families and fund the work in the Kingdom. The ultimate key to finding a job you love is knowing yourself.

What do you do as a Christian leader when the problem is so big that you don’t do anything at all to stop it? God’s not called us to stop it, He’s called us to move so that He can do the work. It’s the practical nature of that move that I want to talk about today.
The word covenant means more than you think it does. Although there are similarities between a contract and a covenant they are nothing alike. One says, “I will,” vs, “If you.” One says, “I Promise,” vs, “You agree.” One is forever and the other limited by time and easily terminated.
