Does Holiness Really Matter? Like, Really Matter?

I want to pose a question that has a very obvious answer, but when we look deep deep deep deep down in our hearts we have a difficult time really allowing that answer to overflow into our day to day lives. The question I want to pose is, “Does holiness really matter?” Take a second to answer…..   And your answer is…..yes.   You are correct.

Christmas Music

I love Christmas music.  I love Christmas music more than probably any person you have met.

The Missionary Heart of God

The Missionary Heart of God   [4] Jonah began to go into the city, going a day’s journey. And he called out, “Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown!” [5] And the people of Nineveh believed God. They called for a fast and put on sackcloth, from the greatest of them to the least of them.               [6] The word reached the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, removed his robe, covered himself with...
