    This chapter illustrates the beauty of holiness. God gives us knowledge through Jesus Christ. As Jesus was raised to life by the power of God, as saints, we shall also be raised from the dead. We are troubled, perplexed, and persecuted, but never in despair and not forsaken. Jesus takes good care of his sheep. Lift up your heads and enjoy the salvation of the Lord.
  • Israel Kuda
    For me, this is the ultimate chapter of the bible. My favourite! It traverses our faith from end to end. Makes references to the creation of the world whilst illustrating the creation of the new man in Christ v6 , emboldens us to get through unfavourable circumstances v9-10 sets the course of the faith life in Christ v13 by which we have the assurance of the eternal weight of glory v17 !!!

    2 Corinthians 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: I don't ever want to hind the gospel from anybody. If I don't preach the GOSPEL, I am lost. It's hard for a saved born again child of God not to preach the GOSPEL. The Gospel is Christ Jesus our Lord.
