      by Wayne Brewer

        God blessed the children of Israel by leading them to the promised land of Canaan and giving the land over to them.

              SERVING IN THE BODY OF CHRIST

              by Wayne Brewer

                Jesus said that he came to serve and not be served (Matthew 20:28) and in doing so became an example for all Christians to follow (1 Peter 2:21). The Holy Spirit guided Paul to write several times that the church that Jesus established is the body of Christ (Ephesians 1:22-23, Romans 12:4-5, 1 Corinthians 12:12) […]

                    by Wayne Brewer

                                  A Christian may have a certain job or responsibility in this life that takes one to another country for business, political purposes, or simply for pleasure, but when a Christian goes to another nation representing the cause of Christ to preach the gospel and live among brethren in other nations then all are brethren […]
