    I appreciate 7:15, Satan knows that we have sinful tendencies, and he tries to induce us to cater to them. It then becomes a challenge to maintain our integrity. So we have to work hard to act and correct matters.

    True believers do not teach about God , but believe that He is and live His Word all of it, know they are pilgrims, not faultfinders, believers in the blood of Jesus and forgive, believe God provides before we ask and will stand with me as I walk out faith until I receive what He has provided, bold, thankful and loving worshippers who sing to Him not about Him, Jesus is Lord, Maranatha.
