The Calling

A teaching of Matthew 9:9-13 Jesus went from there …: From an evangelistic point of view, we see that Jesus was always active.

Husbands

I found a scripture that could be of help to every husband and I thought I should share it with you. “Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as to the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered.” ...

Understanding the Holy Spirit as a Soul Winner
