Through life things are always changing around us. Whether it’s the latest development in mobile phones or the most recent, progressive opinion on what society should look like, there are always these shifts around us that we need to pay attention and deal with.
We might change the wallpaper or some paint to refresh a room. It can change our mood and lift that room so we want to spend more time with it. From haircuts to wallpaper, and cars to our favourite restaurant, things change. Sometimes, the simplest things can make something appear entirely new and different.
This week we are discussing the idea of adapting to different situations without justifying sin. Endurance is your weekly spiritual workout, whether you think of yourself as a beginner, an intermediate, or advanced!

So I don't see myself as somebody who panics when a computer won't turn on.
GoDeeper with Andy B who talks about what wiping the slate clean really means for us all - God forgiving us when we mess up.
