Jesus is not looking at our intentions, wishes, or knowledge of what is right. He is looking at our works! Are we allowing the grace of God to produce holy living and ministering to others in our lives, or have we received the grace of God in vain?

Limitless Dispensers Of The Light

Jesus has called us to live extreme lives as history...

December 7, 2023 – Exhortation

Posted 12-07-2023 at 08:31 AM by Albert Finch (How Do I Advance My Spiritual Life?)

2 Corinthians 4:8,9 - "We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed."

Many Believers have endured major battles the past few years, and you may have felt like things have taken a turn for the worst.
