    As I grow in Christ, it is truly a grand experience. Intellectual knowledge has no comparison when it comes to the wisdom that comes from above. I have learnt to separate the two.

    When Jesus was teaching inside the church people who believe in him they are listening to his words. In our life believing Jesus and to have FAITH IN HIM IS ONLY BY HEARING THE WORD IF GOD. Without hearing the word if God its impossible to please him. THE FEAR IF THE LORD IS THE BEGINNING OF WISDOM; AND THE KNOWLEDGE OF HOLY IS UNDERSTANDING. AMEN
