The first 8 verses of Matthew 9 give us the clearest picture of Jesus’ mission, His deepest desire and His greatest expression of Love to us. One would argue that John 3:16 paints this picture the best but I would say that the verses of Matthew 9 give us a clearer picture because of the … Continue reading Best solution
When we encounter a power higher than our own, there is a restriction that comes, I wouldn’t want to call it humility, because true humility must be birth from choosing to be humble, but in such a case, one has encountered something stronger and so they have no choice but to be restricted, not because … Continue reading Power pass Power
I'm at a phase in my life where I have been forced to ask 'Who said?' to almost everything I read and hear, unfortunately, not a lot of people understand that it has come with my academic journey, where I have to reference and cite who said anything to either support or counter an argument. … Continue reading (Yah, 2021, pg 10)
