Holding On While You’re On Hold

Play

In Hebrews we read that God said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5b).

Enjoy Your Forgiveness

Enjoying your forgiveness means to live in the incredible truth that when you confess and forsake your sins, God freely forgives and furthermore, he remembers them against you no more.
