The fear of the Lord: reverential shock and awe

CrackinSpaceWhat does the fear of the Lord look like through the lens of love? For His perfect love truly casts out all our orphan-hearted fear (1 John 4:18).

Zombie_ApocolypseWhat will the church look like as it rises from the ashes of the aftermath of the Zombie Apocalypse? Are we living in the dawning of a new day?

Will the church finally look like Jesus in the aftermath? Continue reading
