Sunday January 20, 2013 – In order to have a successful Christian life we have to protect ourselves against sin. It’s not always easy. Being keenly aware of possible sin and protecting you and your family from it, is necessary.
If we’re leaning on Him, if we’re trusting in Him and if we’re depending on Him, there’s a spirit of truth. God wants you to lean on Him, He wants to speak to you, He wants to love on you.- Pastor Dwayne Terry
