Falling in Love with The Incomparable Christ

Who would you say Jesus is to you?

That's the question that we all must answer and the way we respond is of utmost importance.  Our answer determines how we respond to Jesus and His message.

As Nancy Leigh DeMoss prepared to celebrate Easter this time last year, she picked up a book by J. Oswald Sanders called The Incomparable Christ.  As she read this classic devotional study, she was greatly blessed through the daily meditations that left her with a sense of awe about the Person of Christ.

Are You Up for a Challenge?

Recently on Facebook, Dennis Rainey posted this:

Jim & Carol Garlow

Jim and Carol GarlowI'm in awe of God's design for the Church body. From the "weeping with those who weep and rejoicing with those who rejoice," to "they will know you are my disciples, if you have love one for another,"...the infrastructure of the Christian community supports life's twists and turns. I count it a privilege to be part of the body with Jim and Carol Garlow--and they're certainly having many turns ahead of them. Here's a section of Jim's latest update:
