11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,

Always keep God the Father and God the Son and God the Holy Spirit in your heart, in your mind, in your soul and in your daily life.

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
