Ring Out the Sound

Ring out the sound, ring out the bells, And of the gospel, tell them, tell. Do not hold back, and please don’t slack, For many of the truth do lack. Get that truth out, give it a shout, And don’t you now have any doubt That God can take it, take it far, So be … Continue reading Ring Out the Sound

Sincerity of Faith

Sincerity of faith, what does that look like? – Believing in Jesus, doing what He says. Looking in your mirror, what do you look like? Walking with Jesus Christ? Or spiritually dead?
