I too often find it easy to compromise what God is leading me to do because of the circumstances I am in. Instead of fighting for what God wants, I just lay down and accept what the world is telling me to do...that isn't what Daniel (and Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego) did in Daniel Ch. [...]

Today is the day we celebrate the most important event in the history of the existence of man; the day a sinless man took on our iniquities, and bore the penalty we were destined to pay for our sin. It is the day that Jesus died for us on the cross, so we could be [...]
