    We serve a kind, loving, forgiving, God. Who is willing, waiting, and always ready to forgive us our sins. When we cry out to him wholeheartedly, and ask for His forgiveness. However, we need the power of God in our lives to live a clean, godly life, of purity, and holiness.

    The second commandment is thou shalt not make unto thee any graven e image.
    Ooh Moses Moses take off they shoes from off they feet for the ground you are standing is holy ground,
    And yet we still have very little faith,

    The Book of Psalms is actually my favorite part of the Bible and then I would have to say John 3:16 because that is the first thing out of the Bible that my children memorized as a family we were baptized in this church and we really have grown to love it we have moved away from the church but are are going to be moving back closer soon

    Jehovah God is a merciful God who has continued to show mercy. His mercy will continue for all of eternity for those who draw close to him and keep his commandments.

    Michael: All HIS Soldiers are On The Same Road. Your Post is like a Rallying Cry. It Surely Will Help Whoever. Thanks, We Need to Lift One Another, The End of The Road is Even Closer

    The goodness and mercy of God are here ascribed. He is a forgiving God and worthy of praise.
    Thanks be to God for His unconditional love.
