Helpful Verses

For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools, and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.  Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever!

- Romans 1:21-25

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."

- John 1:1-5


“The story you live in is the story you live out.”

“Some of us have a theology of the cross that is big enough to forgive sin but too small to restore creation; big enough to cover the offense but too small to repair the damage; big enough to pardon the crime but too small to transform the criminal. But the good news of the cross is that Jesus has more than just forgiven sins, he’s overcome all that would stand in opposition to his kingdom purposes to restore all things.”
