    We must thank the Lord our God everyday for his goodness and mercy will always follow us. Thanks to Jesus for his precious blood that shed for us. We are now live because of Jesus forgiveness, we are now save and have life in abundance. Our job now is to believe Jesus is the Son of the Living God, and obey his words and his commandments for He is faithful to his promises that he will never ever leave us nor forsake us. Whenever we call Jesus, He will come to save us even to our utmost situation. He knows how to bless us in all our situations. His thoughts and his ways are higher than our ways. Thanks be to Jesus and praised him forever. Amen
  • LAWRENCE A.O. for verse 15
    It pleases God to see His saint struggle with sin all his her life time and finally overcome. His her departure on earth and arriving in His presence is an addition to the crowd of witnesses in heaven. It is a precious sight for the Lord to see His saint riding on death as a horse to His glorious presence. It is majestic for a saint to approach heaven as a conqueror of enticing sin, worldly pleasures and standing righteously tall in the perverse, corrupted, polluted, worldly systems. It is a precious testimony to end one 's life in the Lord.
