We often fall into the trap of thinking "This is what I do, and I will do it…Spiritual and impossible things are what God does and when I need help with those things I'll turn to Him." But just as it was for Peter, it is for ...
Meriam Yahia Ibrahim. Have you heard that name? On May 11th of this year she was convicted of apostasy and adultery. What had she done? Well, she was a Christian, having been raised by her Christian mom. But since her dad was a Muslim, even though he had been absent, since he was a Muslim – her being a Christian was apostasy.

One of the greatest questions ever asked in response to hearing the Word of God… "What should we do then?" (Luke 3:10) To the believer who is already walking with God: Remember salvation is not turning over a new leaf, it is about living a new life.
