    based on 1 rating

    We are all running towards a goal and our reward is the crown of righteousness that the Lord has promised to all those who run and finish well. However, in order to attain this imperishable crown, we need to exercise self-control in every area of our life.

    A race run well The Apostle Paul writing to the Church in Corinth admonishes them this way.

    As I write this, two well-known personalities in the area of music and opinion have passed away within the span of a couple of hours. The Christian singer Carman, who was popular in the 1980's through the early 2000's , was known for songs such as "Addicted to Jesus", "The more

  • Through Prayer Pt 6 Series

    Contributed by Michael Mccartney on Oct 11, 2019

    Contributed by Perry Greene on Jul 22, 2019

    The Christian journey can be described as a "race." We choose the kind of race we run -- fun and games; obligatory; or the long-term run.

    1. Last week we “passed the baton” in regard to teaching people the word of God from generation to generation and person to person. 2.
