Our faith matters to others! As a matter of fact, our faith can make an eternal difference. In the 5th chapter of Luke we learn about the paralyzed man being lowered through the roof and placed “right in front of Jesus.” “When Jesus saw THEIR faith, He said, ‘Friend, your sins are forgiven.” (Luke 5:20, […]

How can we make someone else’s life better today? An idea: “God created each of us on purpose and for a purpose.”(Unknown) “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”(Ephesians 2:10) Keith MadisonSCORE International

Too much of my prayer life is asking God to give me what I want. I should be a thankful child, not a spoiled child. “True faith does not so much attempt to manipulate God to do our will as it does to position us to do his will.” (Phillip Yancey) “…your will be done, […]
