If you are not familiar with the word, this GraceTake will take you through one example of a hissy fit with me at the center of the storm! It is actually a sad commentary so listen if you dare.
Yes, I love the movie Princess Bride…”inconceivable”! With respect to 1 John 1:9, I think we should consider the Inigo Montoya analysis that “I do not think it means what you think it means”. Does 1 John 1:9 really mean for believers to confess their sins to receive forgiveness from God? Take about 7 minutes and listen to my GraceTake on that very question and let me know what you think.
In this 30 second insight, Romans 12:3 reminds us that life is not all about “me”; sometimes we need to come down off our pedestal (remember, God use a donkey in the past).

This episode just highlights a couple of points I want you to consider…we may explore a few more ideas of church in future episodes.
