In other words, what do we really, really want to see happen this year?
Listen, if anybody asks you whether or not I am committed to God, tell them that I am in a relationship with Him, but it’s NOT that serious. I’m just not that into Him. The truth is, I just like Him a lot. I know that He loves me, but I can’t commit ONLY to Him when there are so many other options . Tune in as Juanita Price shares her message: “I’m Just Not That Into God”.
Where does your spiritual strength come from? Where do you find the strength to live like God desires? To love like Jesus? To be spiritual strong? Listen as pastor Jody Sledge shows us from this passage that our strength comes from a great God, who works greatly in us, and can do far greater than we could ever imagine.

Let’s consider three questions...
