August 2: My One Sentence Bible

What is My One Sentence Bible?


Are you bold enough to believe in and pray for the outrageous? Matthew 21:18-22

I plead with you: Stop being a gatekeeper and start acting like Jesus. Matthew 21:23-46, 23:13-39

Culture tells us that reconciliation is dropping everything you believe and going to the other side. The Bible tells us that reconciliation is hinged on Jesus reconciling us to God, and us to those most unlike ourselves. Matthew 22:34-40

Much love.
