1 Kings 10

In Audio by Allen Webster

All of God’s children will face persecution in their lives. We should never allow our critics to find weakness in our faith.

And some of the Bible’s strong statements are actually understatements.

We must be very careful not to let anyone ascribe glory to us which should be given to God. Miracles do not occur today because they no longer have any purpose.
