Let’s Walk

Reminded this morning about walking. Three times in the first twenty-one verses of Ephesians 5. Less about getting my steps in but more about putting my salvation on. Redeemed not because of my good works, nevertheless, redeemed for good works … Continue reading

For the Sake of God’s Glory

From Knowledge to Knowledge
