Change of Heart

And I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the Lord: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God: for they shall return unto me with their whole heart – Jeremiah 24:7.

Persecution can be good because it takes our eyes off earthly possessions and desires and make us focus on reaching the Father for help. Persecutions strip away superficial belief. Read More

To live effectively, we must keep our eyes on Jesus and the Words He has given us to incorporate in our life. Our forefathers didn’t receive the Holy Spirit, as we have,  and they were dedicated to living according to God’s standards. Read More
