    based on 1 rating

    While we wait for Jesus to return, our task is to cooperate with God in his transforming work within us, to listen and obey. And it’s to continue to share the gospel with those around us; to share the glory of God with them.

    One of the things I love about travel is going to places that have a history behind them. To visit Rome, to see the Coliseum or the Roman Forum, to walk on paving stones that are 2000 years old, that maybe even Paul walked on when he was brought before Caesar. Last year I preached in a church that more

  • An Eternal Weight Of Glory Series

    Contributed by Ed Vasicek on Nov 18, 2011
    based on 4 ratings

    We should be grateful for God’s earthly, physical blessings and protection, but we should be even more grateful for the eternal blessings he gives us.
