My Personal Testimony

By David Elgueta

I was born on March 17, 1966. My parents are and were Christians before I was born. My mother came to the Lord in the 50’s and during that time it was very hard to be a Protestant in Chile, a country governed by the Catholic Church. Protestants were persecuted and discriminated by Catholic Church…

Don’t Delegate Up

By Jack Donnelly

In John 19:30 we see that Jesus Christ, at the moment of His physical death, uttered the words “It is finished.” Although it is phrased as a rhetorical expression, Matthew 22:44 indicates that “The Lord (God the Father) said unto my Lord (Jesus Christ), sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies…
