Our Delight is in God not Government.
Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.
The Empathy of Love In the first verse of the passage of the Bible we are reading, Romans 12:9 speaks of love without dissimulation, or Love without hypocrisy, and we have seen just such an example set before us in the exhortations to “Distribute to the necessity of saints, and to Bless them that persecute you and now we see this same level of consistency to show the empathy of love, and that is to Rejoice with them that do…
It is not natural to us to Bless our Persecutors; quite to the contrary, the most natural tendency for us all is to fight fire with fire, those who treat us with spite, we return the favour in kind.

He explains to his readers: Christ’s priesthood and atoning…
God Keeps His Promises This sermon by Cody Kereopa is to provide to us an important understanding as to the character of God. Does God keep all his promises? What does it say about God if he only chooses to keep some of the promises he made? What confidence would that give us that he would answer our prayers or even listen to our prayers? What about our salvation, will he keep us as he has promised or will he…
