Fake Tolerance or Radical Acceptance
How do you live in peace with someone whose views deeply offend you and whose values are radically different from yours? The tolerance promoted in our culture is normal, but it's really false and doesn't work. However, the radical acceptance Jesus calls us to may look weird in our world, but only it can transform lives forever.

    From False Peace to True Peace
    Some Christians falsely believe that if two people are not openly fighting, that means peace. However, that is a false peace that isn't really peace at all. Only the supernatural power of Jesus can remove the barb of unforgiveness and bitterness in us and lead us to a true peace with others.

    Jesus’ Way of Resolution
    This should be the world's perspective on us: That Christians get into conflict? NORMAL. That they actually resolve them? WEIRD.

    The Beauty of a Relationship Rehab
    As Rebecca Manley Pippert said, "Holiness, from God’s perspective, is intimately connected to how we treat people. Holiness is rooted in relationship." That is why one of the most important fruits of holiness in our lives is shalom, peace with God and peace with others.

    Killing Sin Before It Kills Us
    Nothing will destroy the pursuit of holiness more than being OK with something God is not OK with, namely sin. That is why we have to fight to kill sin in our lives before it kills us.

    Our Deepest Longing
    Being holy is a gift for everyone who is in Christ. It's also a daily fight to make the holiness of Jesus visible in us. If we don’t want it, we won’t miss it. But if we want it, it’s ours.

    Rome – Our Story Continues
    Acts essentially ends on a big “To be Continued!” In other words, the book ends, but the story continues because the mission Jesus gave us continues. It went from Paul in Rome through nearly 2000 years of history to us today. Now we are being written into the story! Your life and my life is now a part of this eternal story that God is writing! And we all have a story to tell.

    Caesarea – Showing People the Real Thing
    Would you recommend your life in Christ to others? If you are really in Christ, you may not have everything the world offers, but you have everything that the world really needs.

    Ephesus – The Real Change Agent
    If the Holy Spirit is missing from your heart, it doesn't matter what else is there. But when the Holy Spirit is there, He changes you on the inside, which effects everything on the outside too!
