God’s word is truth. Truth gives us the path to walk in God’s Peace, Love, Joy, and Fulfillment. There are many paths but God’s path of truth is the only path that includes these blessings. Today we are living in a time of great turmoil and revolution. People all over are “standing their ground” often times creating great havoc, disruptions to peace, and moral breakdown. That is why it is vital that we know what ground we are standing on before we enter a battle.

This Sunday, September 19th at 9:00am we will gather at Esic Church to gather around God’s Truth taken from the book of Truth. I will be opening a story of great significance that most of us will be very familiar with even though it happened thousands of years ago. I hope you will come with an open heart to receive God’s truth and the blessings that come with it. See you Sunday morning! The music will compliment the message.
