Every moment we move in both the seen and unseen world – the visible Church Ministry and the unseen Fellowship with the Lord of the Church : Both need our full commitment for a beautiful outcome
Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. (Eph 6:13)
