Resistance and Pressing Through —  God deeply desires to impact communities through those willing to partner with Him.

The Sufferings of Christ

The Sufferings of Christ    –  Christ’s death was an investment into others’ healing, deliverance, and salvation. We were called to partner in His suffering. This kind of suffering denies our carnal desires and positions us for right-living. In other words, the pursuit of God’s desires is synchronous with the laying down of our own carnal…
