Have we missed the one thing that has the power to bring relief, hope, and healing to our hurting world?

Spend even a few minutes scrolling through your news feed and you will be bombarded by stories of disenfranchisement, destruction, and discontent. God’s first impulse toward our broken world was to show mercy – even when justice was justified – and Jesus has commanded us to “go and do likewise.”

The secret of Jesus’s powerful ministry was combining mercy and truth in the context of relationships. This is the model that changed the world. In everything he did, Jesus brought hope and healing through a pattern of love – see, go, do, and endure – that we are called to emulate.

The God Impulse shows you practical ways you can live out this pattern in your own life, enabling you to experience

  • healing in broken relationships
  • the opening of your heart to those around you
  • new hope for social justice
  • unexpected blessing and provision
