Press In!

“On one occasion, while the crowd was pressing in on him to hear the word of God, he was standing by the lake of Gennesaret.” (Luke 5:1)

What should hinder him from making sure that the Lord heard him? Likewise, what should hinder you and I from passionately pursuing the Lord? Continue reading
