“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” — Matthew 5:11-12

Our Faith

Revolworks

“We do not create our destiny; we participate in its unfolding.” -- David Richo

“He could not do any miracles there, except lay His hands on a few sick people and heal them. And He was amazed at their lack of faith.” (Mark 6:5-6)

Where there was no faith, Jesus could not operate.
