I’m mindful of when I was a little boy and I’d ride the merry-go-round. As I went round and round, with one hand I’d hold on to the horse for dear life, and with the other I’d reach for the brass ring. I’m sitting here trying to be honest with myself is Jesus the Horse? Or is Jesus the brass ring?
CORE VALUE # 8 Integrity – God looks for men and women of integrity who live holy lives that are accountable to God and to the Body of Christ. Integrity glorifies God, protects leaders from stumbling, and encourages growth.
Part of our faith journey is the freedom to ask tough questions? Is Jesus what I cling too or what I’m reaching for?
