Bright and Morning Star

May the purpose of every “jot and tittle” of this website be to magnify Jesus, The Lamb of God, that He may gain a full reward for His suffering. May His Name be magnified and may His Word be even above that. May the words herein minister grace to the hearers and be the very words of God that He would be glorified through Jesus Christ. May His Eternal Spirit ever bring forth more glorious truth of Jesus for each of us to behold. May your affection for Jesus, God’s One-and-only Unique Son, be set on fire and may that flame never die.

Raised Paths

The world which we live in is a very fine proponent of “doing you,” that is, of engaging in whatever makes you happy or pleases you.
