I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that He considered me trustworthy, appointing me to His service.

The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.

The BIBLE is meant to be BREAD for daily use, not a CAKE for special occasions.

We’ve lost a clear, Bible-informed view of sin. We don’t think of it as a violation of God’s law and character. We don’t define it as a rejection of his rule in our lives. We don’t acknowledge that sin is rebellion, a willful choice from a heart to make something besides God our ultimate concern. we don’t call sin “sin”. We excuse it, overlook it, and rename it.
— Joshua Harris, Dug Down Deep

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
— Hebrew 11:1
On my bed I remember you;
I think of you through the watches of the night.
Because you are my help,
I sing in the shadow of your wings.
My soul clings to you;
your right hand upholds me.
— Psalm 63:6-8
