Worship Moment of the Week: On Call God [Read Time 3m]

Have we become a body of believers that expect God to be an “On demand God”? Church has begun to look like a drive-in, take out service, instead of stepping into His presence. Have we allowed our “need list” to trump His very existence in our lives? The truth is He doesn’t exist for us; […]
