Saintly Suffering 1 – If I believe in Christ, shouldn’t I be happy?

Deciding to put my faith in Christ and repent of my sins is, without a doubt, the best decision of my life, but it hasn't meant an easy ride. I don't expect that this will change in the future, at least until I die or Jesus returns. The question of happiness is one that I... Continue Reading →

Learning to Love Leviticus 5 – Day of Atonement (16:1-34)
