Could it be that at times our work for God could get in the way of God’s work? This week we’re focussing on how Jesus has to be centre-stage!
Nicodemus was impressive – but there were shadows in his life that Jesus’ light would illuminate. You might look impressive; like you’ve got everything sorted.
