Life Resource Center

ABOVE ALL by J.D. Greear

In a world that divides over everything, J. D. Greear reminds us that above programs, politics,preferences or any other priorities we may be compelled by, Jesus promised to build His church on the rock of the gospel and that the gospel is the source of the Church’s renewal. We, on the other hand, often prefer to attack each other over second things instead of cooperating on the first thing. As Christians, we need to remember that the gospel comes first, bringing hope and grace, along with instructions for how we should live as representatives of our Savior, who has sent us on a mission to change the world.
