I disagree with the unconscious modern definition of ministry, which robs the practical application of the term of its deep texture of real life.

He made man, the crown of His creation, perfect and capable of fellowship with Himself and able to enjoy and govern Eden. The book of Genesis is by all means a book of beginnings. Jon Courson once commented about it and said, 'It... Continue Reading →
