Pastor Steven Furtick (Opening Night)
“Our presentations of perfection pose a problem for others progress.”
When it comes to #kidmin, there is often a perceived pressure to appear perfect and to display a perfect family. During this message, Pastor Steven reminded us of what Paul said in 2 Corinthians 3:12-18 “now with unveiled faces.” Take off the veils and be honest with God and others and watch how Jesus uses the truth to change lives.
“God can’t bless who you pretend to be.”
