September 30, 2016

Changed Hearts. Day 40 – September 30, 2016 Rev 4 and 5.  Nothing will change us more as we recognize God’s holiness and worship the Lamb who was slain.  Worship of God, though, to the seeker and skeptic must seem strange.  Talk about it with them.  Pray that as we sincerely worship in spirit and truth, that seekers cold hearts would be warmed by Christ and skeptics’ hard heads would be infused with Light.  Pray…
