3 John—Small book, Big message part 2

Who do you think you are?

What a question to start your Monday morning with, right? This was the very question that smacked me in the face this morning as I sat down at my kitchen table to resume my daily time with the Lord. Conviction isn’t always the nicest of feelings, is it? It doesn’t…

When it’s hard to give grace

Grace is such a gift. Anyone who knows what it means to be on the receiving end of grace knows that my first statement is so true. Grace: getting what you don’t deserve. If you and I are honest, every last one of us has been the recipient of grace…
