A Bible Reading Plan on Winter

Posted by CGO Team on December 8, 2017 at 9:55 AM

A Bible Reading Plan on Mercy

Posted by CGO Team on August 2, 2017 at 3:05 PM

Each of the readings in this Bible reading plan is about mercy. Just like His grace, God’s mercy flows out of His great love. But grace and mercy are very different

feeling that I have to do something, get involved. It doesn’t matter if the suffering is that person’s own fault or even if that person is just getting what he or she deserves.
