Is Jesus your Cheerleader?

I’ve written over the past few weeks about God with us and in us. I’ve never spoken to a group of women for whom the idea of intimacy with God, that kind of closeness, wasn’t scary for some, if not most.

Hanging on to the promise: God with us

God is WITH us. This is gospel, this is good news. We invite people to become Christians.  And we’ve hopefully responded to that invitation ourselves. But do we live the truth that believing Jesus is just the beginning?

What will man do to me?” (Hebrews 13:1-6)
