When, in the name of Jesus, we show compassion for others, God is honored. The work of Christian discipleship is the antidote to spiritual boredom.

Take refuge in the name of God. Put your hope in the righteousness of Christ and not your own. Accept the loving transformation that God’s Spirit is in you. Serve God and each other with gladness.
