The wasteland of spiritual barrenness
God breaks through the desolate places.
Just as we have a kingdom responsibility to manage the material things that God gives us, so we have a kingdom responsibility to manage the immaterial things he gives.
If you're not living for Christ, your life is failing even if you're "winning."
God welcomes us with costly, extravagant love and then he calls us to share his love with the world.
God displays his incomparable wisdom in unlikely places—like at the Cross and in the church.
