    Without doubt God’s provision for mankind, prepared even before Adam’s fall, was fully met with the Lord Jesus, God’s Son, who came to earth in human form, lived a perfect life then bore our sins as He went to the cross. What a triumph when He rose again on the third day, just as He said! Sin & death are defeated for all those who put their trust in Him. Now that is a God who is in full control. Praise His Name – forever!

    I am finding these articles very interesting. I am struggling with the fact that my son used to be a youth leader for years at the Weslyin Church and my x wife told me that he has given up his faith and no longer believes. I pray for Dustin that he regains his faith and realizes that Jesus is is real. Would U please pray for him.
