    Verse 2 is quoting Isaiah 49:8. Now is the especially acceptable time. We don't want to miss the purpose of God's undeserved kindness.

I will help anyone with almost anything,the Price: Hearing The Way of Salvation. I sometimes take them Fishing or invite for Supper. Sometimes One will go to Church.

    Being unequally yoked with unbelievers is correct, but it means not to run with them not to restrain from witnessing to them.

    V.10 - As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; - I've had 2 recent experiences with this - as I know many of you have. About 2 1/2 mos. ago my 46 yr. old son had a heart attack, his heart stopped, they got it going again; he's fine now. Then this past Dec. 13 I came down with flu/pneumonia for 2 wks. Mighty prayer was sent up for us both of us by the ch. I'm fine, but thru it all I could REJOICE!!
