3 Things I Learned in a Week with Barry Meguiar

Barry-Meguiar-Joe-Emert-Jim-StewartIf you spend 60 seconds talking with Barry Meguiar, there's no doubt you'll be energized to share your faith.  Imagine spending four consecutive days with him.  At NRB, that's what I was privileged to do.  And WOWwhat a powerful time it was!

Barry demonstrates consistently that our job is "to turn every circumstance into an opportunity to lead people to Jesus Christ."  I left the Convention with three key lessons:

1)    "You don't have to be trained to love on people."

Whether it's praying for the waitress who shares her family struggles, offering a ...

In this Lenten season, Nancy continues her teaching on "The Incomparable Christ," based on the J. Oswald Sanders classic of the same name.  She shares that there truly is no one like Jesus-not even close!

It is not enough to know that Jesus is incomparable.  We must steadfastly fix our eyes and our hope upon Him:

Some customers came in every single morning (if I had the budget for it, I'd do the same!).  Other customers appeared sporadically, every few ...
