You are not helpless. In you flows the DNA of Jesus Christ. You have within you the ability to celebrate in tribulation, to persevere, to prove character, and to have true, divine hope. Available to you is the abounding grace of God, and it is not waiting on your sin for increase; it is always abundant. May we not insult the spirit of grace by using it as license to remain in sin, but to propel us into our true identity as sons of God.

Forgiveness (Part 2)
December 3, 2023 • Mark Durniak
When you find yourself obsessed with someone else's mistakes, you may find you are actually struggling with your own value. This is not sourced in God's spirit. Faith sees all the incredible things that are possible in you--and in others--that have yet to exist.
Forgiving What You Can't Forget
November 26, 2023 • Mark Durniak • Luke 23
When others make mistakes, it is unlikely they are operating in a heavenly perspective. Unintentional wrongdoing is either out of ignorance (lack of understanding) or immaturity (lack of growth). Seeing people the way the Father sees His children is what helps us forgive, because we learn to separate people from their mistakes. They are His child. He forgives them by not associating their behavior with who they are. The Father does not connect behavior with your identity.
The Spirit of the Thing
November 19, 2023 • Mark Durniak • Psalm 24, Isaiah 6
When I focus on diligently working, I can trust that my Father is actively thinking about me and backing me up. We tend to have the mentality that our natural work is not spiritual action. But there is no dividing wall between spiritual activity and natural activity. Everything is spiritual. Everything. The spirit of the thing is more important than the thing.
