  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: My desire is that the information that the Holy Spirit has blessed me with will bless and help you, too.

Cross reference with Job 23:10 - "He know the way I take and when He has tried me I shall come forth as gold..."

    In verse 97, the author says, “How love I thy law…” The word love here from the original language can mean “a human love for another” or “a human appetite for objects.” Sometimes, our affections and our base needs are very different, other times they are one and the same. Many people would ...read more

    It is possible to be a follower of Jesus without being a disciple; to be a camp follower without being a soldier of the king; to be a hanger-on in some great work without pulling one’s weight.
