I Love My Church!

Be The Boss

I absolutely love to talk about change, to make plans, to daydream about how things could be different and better. I love to talk about changing things so much sometimes I will talk about it for years! That’s how dedicated I am.

The reality of life was crushing me when all of the sudden the words of the song I had been tuning out hit home. I immediately became reacquainted with the power of the practice of worship in our lives and have since made a conscious effort to be a better worshiper in the day to day minutiae of life.

7 Practices to Grow Closer to God: Part 5 Obedience

If you grew up listening to DC Talk like I did, then this quote is going to bring back some powerful memories:

“The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today... is Christians who acknowledge Jesus with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is simply what an unbelieving world finds unbelievable.”
