Dru’s heart is to Glorify God. He knows that true hope for salvation and living life for God’s glory only comes through the grace that is offered through Christ’s gift on the cross. “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:8-10
