The Significance in Small Acts

John 17:4 (NLT) "I brought glory to you here on earth by doing everything you told me to do." I want you to be able to say that when you get to heaven. You completed the work that God gave you to do. Jesus was faithful in fulfilling His service. He didn't give up. He didn't give in. He was persistent. You may retire from your job someday, but you're never retiring from...

Matthew 20:28 (NLT) "For even I, the Son of Man, came here not to be served but to serve others."

It takes three to make a marriage stand. Not two three. You, your spouse and Christ. God never meant for you to go through your marriage just with the two of you working on it.
