So What If You’re Not Perfect?
by Ministry Support on June 24th, 2020
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10) In her book, The Gifts ...

Honor Your Father
by Ministry Support on June 16th, 2020
Honor your father and your mother, so that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you. (Exodus 20:12) In her powerful text “The Will To Change: Men, Masculinity, and Love,” Bell books writes of her father.
