  • Margaret Adusei for verse 33
    We are in this world but not from this world. Heaven is our home. So even though we are always around unbelievers and the scripture tells us to win them for Christ, we must be careful as believers when it comes to relationships in every area of our lives. We should know whom to share our problems with. In Acts 4:23, after Peter and John had been threatened not to do anything in the Name of Jesus, where did they go? They went to their "own company " not friends or people with canal mind. Let us do the same. Amen.
