Up to this point, we have looked at Genesis through Leviticus. I hope each book has helped you learn something important about God and what he wants for you.

I know that this can be an overwhelming and difficult challenge. Living the new life in Christ is hard and there is so much to learn, it almost feels like too much to expect of anyone. Continue reading “The importance of a choice.”
Why do new Christians fall away? Why do so many new Christians never achieve success as a Christian? I think it is because they were never given the opportunity to learn the basics of the Christian life. Church, basic principles are needed. Continue reading “Basic Principles are Needed!”
What is the difference between a diamond and a gold nugget? The most obvious differences are visual. One looks clear and the other is yellow in color.
