Crocodiles... Anyone for the beach?
Yes, there's lots in life…Continue

4. THE SHOES OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE
Area of Protection
The phrase "preparation of the gospel of peace" means "to be ready, or dressed in readiness," which was vital when a soldier had to dodge, stand or run in hand-to-hand combat with the enemy, His SHOES had metal cleats, which made him more sure-footed in battle.

He told me that the roots have to grow in deep to…Continue
