Your Spiritual Life is Like a Racetrack

“Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain.” (1 Cor. 9:24) Just imagine your spiritual life is like a racetrack set before you. A straight road as far as the eye can see. And this is the only road you ...

5 Points about the Last Days of Grace
