Living for Christ

There are over 7.5 billion people in the world. There is one you. There is a call on your life that only you can answer. Seasonless areas are waiting for your matchless flavor (Matthew 5:13).

The Necessity of Forgiveness

A few years ago, I settled in my heart to forgive someone I hated for about ten years. After years of thinking I had finally forgiven, I soon realized I still harbored hate for a person who was and is one of the most important people in my life. Unforgiveness proved to be a terrible…
