"The Great Commission" that God has placed upon every saved, washed in the blood to do the will of the Father. We have a ministry to walk, talk, and live according to God's standards.  Be ready.  Be watchful.  Have discernment. Lend a hand. Love. Give. Share the Word, and pray until we hear the voice of God.  Don't give up, keep marching toward the finish line. Pick your brother up if he falls, and carry him if necessary. Life is not easy...but the reward is eternal peace!!!
"He makes us to lie down in green pastures, He leads us beside still waters, He restores our soul."  Psalm 23:2-3       He Draws  Me Aside To Be Tested And Tried, But In The Valley He Restoreth My Soul!
