Too many people who identify themselves as “Christians” have a Bible but do not use it in America. Therefore, they do not reap the benefits that God’s Word is sure to produce in their lives. Noted within the message a Gideon speaker made a presentation earlier in the service. It was a great day for Lennon Wesleyan Church.

The discipline of confession and granting forgiveness to others is difficult and challenging, however, the rewards are unmatched.

The first spiritual tool or discipline is found in Matthew 6:1-4 the spiritual practice of helping others.
