  • Joyce Ballentine
    If we have not died in our sins that means we are still in the race.If we die in our wrong doings that means we have lost the race,but if God has spared us to see another day and has given us great grace we are still in this race.Its up to us to finish our course and to keep the faith.We can 't allow the devil to think he has won something he haven 't just in case you didn 't know God is still sparing us to get right because He knows our mess ups before we do.Shall we continue in them no.The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life.
  • Be watchful. Far too many have stumbled in their ministry race due to allowing their thought life to wander down roads contrary to God s Word. Until we master the source of our sin, which is wrong thinking, our sinful thoughts will master us. Cr. Morris Gleiser 'Stay in the Race "
