    Ray, The near death of Paul's friend in this chapter verse 30 should be a lesson that even in the vineyard of working for God, we need to find time to rest. Even God rested on the 7th day. He is a God of principle. If we go against his principle of rest we shall fall sick and die. Don't take his mercy for granted. Not all will be fortunate like Paul friend in this chapter.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    Jesus, I adore you. Wherefore God has highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name. That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth. And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
