Beloved in the Faith

Lisa and I want to encourage you today as beloved brothers (and sisters).  We are HIS Beloved and therefore whatever trial is upon us, we have His strength to stand fast because He is holding us in His arms.


I Corinthians 15:58 Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.
