“I have seen thousands of the most hardened people (You know, those that look like they have been dragged behind a truck for years.) listen out of curiosity and then God does the rest of the work. It is awesome to have a front row seat to watch the power of the Gospel literally melt the hearts of the most hardhearted people. By the end of the message, there are tears of repentance, newfound forgiveness, hope, joy and freedom as the chains drop off of their guilt and shame because of Jesus Christ.”
“It just doesn’t get any better than this!”
