Perseverance

So I read the article below – and wondered – do most Christians ever want to become really good at something, anything, related to God and their faith? I write knowing that many profess a great desire to know their Bible, to love God more fully…yeah...

Ever felt powerless?

Once more not my own work – but if you have ever had the joy of teaching you will at some time or other know something of the feeling of powerlessness this email describes Teachers Posted by plumber on November 19, 2009 at 8:28pm View plumber’s blog...

The virtue of forgiveness

Reading 1 John 1:5-2:2 Self-condemnation is a common feature of our human experience. Many Christian believers suffer from condemnation of spirit. The reality of our daily failures in our walk with God and the pressure of our interaction with other people often lead...

Bible Reading

http://jcrylequotes.com/2009/11/16/the-priority-of-bible-reading/ “Read the Bible daily. Make it part of every day’s business to read and meditate on some portion of God’s Word. Gather your manna fresh every morning. Choose your own seasons and hours. Do not scramble...
