    Posted on May 14, 2018

    The Weekly PowerBreak – “Great Expectation”

    Posted on April 2, 2018

    What does God expect from us? Well that depends on what He has given us or done for us. Creation speaks of God’s eternal power and divine nature that everyone who denies God His proper honor in submission is without excuse and shall be judged accordingly.

    Romans 1:18–23 (ESV) — 18 For the wrath of […]
