An Opportunity to Point
As Christians we are often faced with times of trial. Perhaps it’s because of being heavily investigated for actions I had taken as a nonbeliever, but one of the main things I thought of during that time when I heard the word trial was a court of law. In the end, whether I’d be facing…Read More
Why Did Jesus Come?

Not a Man’s Foundation!
“For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building. According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.

Take a look at this chapter of Exodus. Exodus 17:1-16 “And all the congregation of the children of Israel journeyed from the wilderness of Sin, after their journeys, according to the commandment of the LORD, and pitched in Rephidim: and there was no water for the people to drink.
