Romans 10:1

“Brothers,my heart's desire and prayer to God for them is that they may be saved.”

Know someone who̵...

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves; we are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not despairing; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed; always carrying about in the body the dying of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. - 2 Corinthians 4:8-10

The piñata is the delight of any party. Small kids ...

God has unlimited options. In Acts 3, a man who was lame since birth asked Peter and John for money. He never imagined...

He allows us the privilege of being “co-laborers” with Him. However, ...

Palm Sunday

Luke 19:28-44

Hindsight is always 20/20. Yet while we are in a particular situation, we tend to make things out to be what theyaren’t and infer wrong meanings. We kick ourselves, thinking, If only I had known then what I know now!
