To live intentionally is to embrace a process by which we can find and live our God-given purpose in a way that pleases Christ. Dr. Randy unpacks this in today’s presentation of Part 3 of his 3-part teaching on Intentional Faith. He also visits with a very enthusiastic lady who lives out her faith in a very unusual way as The Flag Lady at Arizona Diamondbacks baseball games! (see below)
“Because of Christ and our faith in him,
we can now come boldly and confidently into God’s presence.” — Ephesians 3:12
Faith in Jesus as The Way, The Truth, and The Life is what allows us into God’s presence. But what does it mean to LIVE IT OUT? An intentional faith is not a saving faith, but it is the kind of faith that is surrendered to God to serve and please Him. So how do you do it? HOW do you live an intentional faith? Dr. Randy is here to help and encourage.
