Day 30 – We Have Sinned

Author: Sallie Ross We have sinned, even as our fathers did; we have done wrong and acted wickedly. When our fathers were in Egypt, they gave no thought to your miracles; they did not remember your many kindnesses, and they rebelled by the sea, the Red Sea. Yet he saved them for his name’s sake, [...]

Day 26: Living Water

Title: Living Water Author: Susan Wallace Have you ever wondered what Jesus meant when he said, “Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water’“ (John 7:38)?

Day 22 – Seeking Reward in Heaven
