Moving Forward

  • Take a few moments each day to reflect on:
    • Jesus’ life – how does it inform how you live?
    • Jesus’ death – how does it free you from guilt and shame and give you a firm foundation of God’s love and acceptance?
    • Jesus’ resurrection – how does it give you perspective on life’s joys and struggles?
