To live out our faith in today’s world, we need to cultivate greater tenacity, diligence, and boldness. In this sermon, Pastor Allen Jackson invites us into training. Instead of passively “trying” to follow God, it’s time to pursue Him like someone who is training for a race. With this approach, difficulties won’t stop us. Instead, they will lead to new skills, new strength, and new nimbleness as our faith and understanding of God grows. Pastor Allen explains the difference between a transactional faith (saying a prayer and then living life however we desire) and embracing a transformational faith—one that can bring freedom to every area of our lives as we grow in our understanding of God and our relationship with Him.
