My friend Pastor Bryan Rosenbarger, preaching on Pentecost, said this: “No matter what laws are passed in this land, only the Holy Spirit can change hearts.”

Take time to reflect on Romans 12:2 in the Passion Translation.

This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.”
