A Thought For Your Christian Journey:
Be A Good Child
If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children:
how much more shall your
heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
Yesterday evening I had the incredible privilege of leading a
lost soul to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior.
Isn’t the grace of God amazing!

family rule in your life always and at all times.

Child of God?
