For this month--here's what we posted to our News & Insights section!

A Heart for Purity

It can be a lonely place when you stand for your convictions and go against the flow, choosing to live life God's way.

As Nancy Leigh DeMoss shared on a recent "Revive Our Hearts" program, "if you're going to live a righteous life, if you're going to walk with God, it's going to be, in some senses, lonely.  It's the majority who walk the way of the world, the way of their own flesh, the way of their own sin, who end up under the wrath and the condemnation and the judgment of God.  It ...
