This body is on a mission

Posted by Brennan Westerman on

As we’ve seen repeatedly, the church in Corinth was jacked up. Sometimes, it’s easy to see how we’re jacked up in the same way, but other times we miss it because we’re jacked up in the opposite way. This is the case when it comes to Holy Spirit-given gifts. In 1...
