Worship requires action. It is not just an emotional experience – from the gift given to us to the offering made by us. Because Jesus offered himself FOR us and offers himself TO us, we can offer our sacrifices as well: our bodies, our praise, our resources, and all because he who died for us […]

The Final Day: A Long Night of Injustice

Jesus faced a night of religious trials and injustice at the hands of “righteous leaders.” Their fears of Jesus were these leaders. We’ll also look at Peter’s denials which were motivated by fear.
