She was a woman who had five failed marriages. The man she lived with was not her husband. She was a mess. Jesus knew all of this and he had a purpose behind what happened next.Read More

It’s easy in these modern times to know a lot about a person without actually knowing them. Scrolling through my Facebook feed the other day, this truth stood out starkly. I noted the many people I had only a surface level acquaintance with. Often, I knew where they went on their last vacation, what sports their kids played, where they worked, etc.- but that’s not the same the thing as really knowing them.Read More
