Living the Christian life apart from a very close relationship with God is futile. Join Dawn and Steve in the Morning for a devotional from Blackaby Ministries International based on Scripture from John.
I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. John 15:5
In addition, Dawn and Steve explore an article from Rebecca Barlow Jordan called "5 Reasons It's Hard for Christians to Forgive Ourselves and Others."
Listen as Dawn and Steve discuss the article by Maria Baer titled "$100M Ad Campaign Aims to Make Jesus the 'Biggest Brand in Your City.'" Baer notes that this endeavor, "He Gets Us" is designed to attract skeptics and cultural Christians on a national level.
