DAY 127 Acts 6:1 But as the believers rapidly multiplied, there were rumblings of discontent. The Greek-speaking believers complained about the Hebrew-speaking believers, saying that their widows were being discriminated against in the daily distribution of food. A question comes to mind: whenever we ask for more of anything, even things seemingly simple as more... Continue Reading →

DAY 125 John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Are you on 'a way', are you on 'theway?Do you have your truth or do you have the truth?Are you alive or do you have life? These may sound... Continue Reading →
HAVE YOU CAUGHT ANYTHING?
DAY 104 John 21:5 Jesus said to them, “Children, do you have any fish?” They answered him, “No.” Accidentally referring to a colonel in the military as a captain is a big deal because it accounts for a huge demotion.
