Sermons on Christian Life

God Loves You And God Loves Me

Romans 5:8 — “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” What is the nature of God’s love? Who are are the recipients of God’s love?

We Must Pray

I Timothy 2:1, Ephesians 6:18 & Philippians 4:6-7 — Most of us live very busy lives and that means we can easily get distracted.
