Lessons From the Churches in Revelation: Philadelphia

Some of the most reassuring and beautiful verses in my opinion come from Romans 8.

Closed Eyes, Closed Ears, and a Stiff Neck

One of the wisest men who ever lived, King Solomon, through inspiration, wrote in Proverbs 15:21, “Folly is a joy to him who lacks sense, but a man of understanding walks up tightly.” We are not to be people who lack sense, or in other words choose to ignore the truth, but rather be ones […]
