Remembering the Past to Lead into the Future

As we get older, we gain a treasure that cannot be had any other way: experience.   It can only be learned "the hard way", however, its fruits can be shared.  A good person will try to pass on the treasures of wisdom he or she has gained by experience and a wise person will try…

Before the Throne of God

What is God like?  What would it be like to stand before His throne?  Would it be wonderful, or dreadful? In Revelation 4, we see John finding out the answer to this.  But the real message is not "what is it like to look into Heaven"; the important question is, "what is HE like?" This…
