The Importance of Having a Christian Community
God talks about the Church a lot in the Bible. The thing is when He mentions the Church, He means a community of believers. It is essential for our spiritual well-being to be a part of a Christian community so that we have people to push us closer to Christ.
How to Integrate Your Faith into Your Workplace
It can be easy to not see your workplace as a mission field. But, the people we spend the most time with are our coworkers. Our actions and our attitude need to back up our faith so that people will ask why we are different. This allows for a gospel conversation to be started.
