The Apostle Paul set a high standard for each one of us. He served God and the people under his watch without wavering. The will of God is NOT always easy.

This is Carol McLeod and you are listening to Defiant Joy Radio!
Worship is the most important choice you will ever make on any day of your life. Worship is your response to WHO God is! Worship is an act of will, not a knee-jerk reaction to how you feel.

One of my favorite stories in the New Testament is found in today’s teaching.
