Everybody loves Hillsong Worship. As Christians of the young adult age group in this century, we’ve all sung their songs in endless praise sets and listened to them for countless hours on our own time.

Part one is here and part two is here. Part 3: Colossians 3:1-17 I wasn’t going to write a third part but it felt a bit weird leaving my Colossians study in the middle of the letter.

We end up with a couple criteria on […]Read More Biblical Boastin’ – 2 Cor 12
You can read part one here! The last chapter left out some details so it was hard to see what was going on in the church of Corinth, if there was conflict, or what Paul was trying to accomplish in boasting.
