Does your work matter for eternity? Sadly, most believers don’t think so. Sure, the 1 percent of the time they spend sharing the gospel with their co-workers matters. But most Christians view the other 99 percent of their time as meaning very little in the grand scheme of things. But that’s not how God sees it. Our guest will reveal unexpected ways our work matters, not just for the moment but for eternity.
Hot-button issues dominating our culture can make speaking out feel taboo. Hiding from hard conversations won’t work. We need to know what God actually says about these issues, and by looking to Scripture, we can find the answers. Our guest today will cover deeply personal, vulnerable, and emotional topics, handling them with grace and respect. God’s Word gives us clarity, healing, and hope.
