--------The BIBLE SHOWS THE WAY OF CHRIST. The Bible SHOWS the TRUTH of Eternal LIFE.
If a CHRISTIAN does not PROSPER in life, there’s SOMETHING WRONG in it! PROSPEROUS CHRISTIANS are those who DELIGHT themselves in the LAW. So if you want to PROSPER & SUCCEED in WHATEVER you DO & WHEREVER you GO, SPEND time in READING & STUDYING the BIBLE.
