We are running a race of holiness that was started by the heroes of the faith in Chapter 11, and now we are on the last leg of this relay.

Jesus gives us insight on who...
Bridle The Tongue - Audio
February 12, 2019
One of the great life principles is overcoming evil with good. Even Christians render evil for evil.

The tongue has the power of life and death, and we will eat its fruit. We will "eat our words." Better to eat good fruit than bitter. Jesus warned that evil words come from an evil...
