Under The Influence
28 June 2020 - Steve Woodman
Romans 12:2

Christians should not seek conformity with the world, but mere nonconformity is NOT the main goal. The main goal is transformation.

In trying times, all may appear bleak, pallid, and lifeless on the surface. But, below the surface, God is at work bringing life from death, sickness, and pain. His Glory shines as He works in the hearts of children in this way. He preserves all creation, even as sin touches it all. But more than that, he preserves His children as His own and He can be trusted.
