Watch the short video illustration above titled The Small Moments Matter | 2:53 (RightNow Media)
“And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him” (Col. 3:17). God asks us to place Him in the center of all we do, even if what we’re doing seems insignificant. He doesn’t promise an applauding audience, but He does honor simple obedience.
You never know how God will use your obedience in mundane moments to influence the people around you. He asks you to do everything for His glory and fame. Will, you put Him in the center of all you do?

Freedom and Justice for All Tony Evans – 11 min.
FREEDOM AND JUSTICE FOR ALL
Black/white relations in the culture at large and in the church, in particular, continue to be a stain on America’s respectable reputation. The church has clearly failed and must seek to function by God’s kingdom perspective. In this legacy message, Tony Evans seeks to promote a biblical understanding of the kingdom foundation of oneness by detailing why we don’t have it, what we need to do to get it, and what it will look like when we live it.
Fully encompassing areas of unity, history, culture, the church, and social justice, Evans looks to the scriptures for the balance between righteousness and justice that is crucial for applying in this generation and in training the next. A full section on black church history provides a background and understanding that has often been neglected. Recalling experiences in his own evangelical journey, Evans shares kingdom-minded approaches for biblical justice and social restoration. To better glorify God and help heal the persistent racial divide, all church members would do well to read and learn from Oneness Embraced.
