Broken Progress!

1 Peter 5:5b “and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for GOD is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Broken Progress!

Universal and Eternal!

Ephesians 5:1 “Therefore be imitators of GOD, as beloved children.” Universal and Eternal! So many languages escape us! Both their motives and intentions……are often lost within translation. Vaguely then, one’s heart is felt. How very shallow — Understanding which is limited profusely…unless we speak in “Common’s tongue”. Save this then…Confusion reigns. But within HIS HOLY […]

Serving CHRIST Alone!

Luke 9:23 “And HE said to all, “If anyone would come after ME, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow ME.” Serving CHRIST Alone!
