Devotion: What Genuine Confession and Forgiveness Look Like

I John 1:9 "​If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness." I John 1:9 is a verse (and concept) I cling to. I am painfully aware that I am just a sinner saved by grace. I…

Don’t Stop Being Disciples – Jn. 15:1-13

Back in the '90s I played in a band known as the Joyful Life Gospel Band. We played churches, Christian coffee houses, jails, state prisons, festivals, etc. Anywhere anyone would listen, we played. And we played a lot. Then the band leader was offered a pastorate in MD. He took…
