A Child Can Walk with God

Thomas Overmiller Perhaps we underestimate the potential for a child’s walk with God. A child can be born again (Matt. 18:3). (I was born again at 2 years old.) A child can choose to be baptized.

Ten Principles for Christian Service

Matt Recker Luke 17:7-10 Part 1 Serving God is wonderful and satisfying if we do it for God and not man, and if we do it in God’s power and not our own. When we lose focus on God’s glory, service will be burdensome; and when we attempt to do it in our own power, […]
