Serve: The Unashamed Worker

2 Timothy 2 “All Christians are but God’s stewards. Everything we have is on loan from the Lord, entrusted to us for a while to use in serving Him.” (John MacArthur) We are not called to serve God with a frustrated sense of obligation.

Detect Error

1Timothy 4:1-5 Satan doesn’t leave fang marks on the skin but lies in the heart (John 8:44). A lie believed to be true will affect your life as if it were true (Pro4:23).
