  • LAW REVEALS NEED OF GRACE -

  • Spiritual Renewal

  • Spiritual Renewal - 

    by Ron Moore

    "Our ancestors became arrogant and stiff-necked, and they did not obey your commands. They refused to listen and failed to remember the miracles you performed among them. They became stiff-necked and in their rebellion appointed a leader in order to return to their slavery. But you are a forgiving God, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love....
