Built to Last

February 2024

We're going to start a new series today called Built to Last. How does God want to build the things in our life that stand the test of time? How can God build the things that really endure? And when we talk about the eternal God of the universe, what God wants to build are eternal things. If you've ever been like me where you've purchased something that you think is going to last and it doesn't last or you can't keep it together, it's like, "Ah, it was built wrong." God wants to build that which is lasting.
