From Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest The brave comradeship of God Then He took unto Him the twelve. Luke 18:31. The bravery of God in trusting us!

Eph 4:2–3 with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There are so many things that divide us.  Political, style, preference, upbringing, economics, race, athleticism, looks…..  With all those things in mind I must admit that I am so grateful for how Paul says to the…
