    This psalm is an example of an “imprecatory prayer,” as it contains brutal honesty and an earnest call for God to bring His justice to bear on the wicked.

    John’s gospel is written so that we may believe on Jesus and the miracles are most important. He lists several and then says the world isn’t big enough to hold the books it would take to have them all written down. The miracles are evidence of His deity and they testify about Him that more

    based on 4 ratings

    Just as a tiny spark has the power to start a devastating fire, one word has the power to devastate lives, homes, churches and communities. Words can tear down but they also can build up. How do you think the Lord would have us use our words? We have all either heard or used the phrase, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me.” Is that true? We’ve had kids all over this church who have broken bones in the past year or so. Things like that happen. People get hurt. more
