Food in the Desert

Food in the Desert

It is said that necessity is the mother of invention, but it is also the breeding ground of faith. We are never more aware of our dependency on God than when we’ve come to the end of our own ability and resources. As western society has become wealthier and more dependent on technology, we seem to be less aware of our need for God. Join us for part 4 of Fully Devoted as we explore how Jesus reminds us that we never know He is all we need until He is all we have.
