God’s Vineyard And Its Tenants

Did Christ claim to be the cornerstone of God’s kingdom? Does the kingdom of God belong strictly to a particular race or people? What does God expect of the people of His kingdom?

True Faith Does Not Allow Pride To Get The Better Of Us

The gospel of Matthew tells of the great faith of a Canaanite woman: “21 Leaving that place, Jesus withdrew to the district of Tyre and Sidon. 22 And a Canaanite woman from that region came to Him, crying out, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on me!
