Do others see God’s grace at work in your life?
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10 KJV)

Are you “spiritually spooked” in this world?
The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion. (Proverbs 28:1 KJV)
It is a sad fact that many professing Christians are deftly fleeing away from spiritual skirmishes with the god of this world, rather than taking a stand for things which are godly and right. God desires that mankind, who have been quickened alive, contend for the Truth and godliness in this world.
Those who are content ... Continue Reading →

But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; (1 Timothy 1:8 KJV)
