    As moses did so should we.. practice righteousness not sin
  • Ella Aladi on Hebrews 11:25
    Suffering affliction here also means crucifying self in order to inherit everlasting rest.So it pays to stick to the word,renew our minds with God 's word according to Romans 12 2 .With the word loaded inside of us we can subdue the flesh unto godliness which is the most reasonable sacrifice.
