Sometimes there are people who are just so on fire for Christ and they simply love Him above everything else and then…something happens.

The word gift is defined as, “A present; any thing given or bestowed.” We give gifts at Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, graduations and etc. We present the receiver with items we have purchased for their benefit and what they do with them from that point is their decision.

“Rebuilding the Walls”

By Pastor Chris Blythe | Feb 1, 2016 | Comments Off on “Rebuilding the Walls”
