Raise your hand if you like it when bad things happen to you! I can't see you as you read this, but I'll bet you aren't fighting the urge to throw your hand up in the air right now. Of course we don't like facing trials and difficulties. We'd have to be crazy to feel otherwise! ...

MATTHEW Featured Blogpost

We Hate Injustice

The thought of injustice irks us. We hate corruption and when something is perceived to be unfair we get vocal about it. This week at The Journey we studied the moment when Jesus stood before the High Priest Caiaphas and his council on trial. Jesus was wrongfully arrested and taken before this council where they actively sought out false testimony to charge Jesus with a...
