The Marital Relationship by Pastor Ed Young

 

That is the first reason, God’s explanation regarding being bound together with a believer. We have got to be able to share the most important thing to us with the most important person.

Consequences by Pastor Ed Young

And sure enough, Joab figured everything out and the troops backed off and Uriah was killed. Uriah is history now. David thinks, “Okay, man, I’ve gotten away with it.”

Anger is a gift from God by Pastor Ed Young

My father, though, became angry at me and he banded me for life from the ping pong table. He said, “You’ll never play again!” But this past Christmas I did buy my kids a ping pong table and guess who showed up last week at my house? My brother! And we went upstairs and [...]

Spend Our Life With the Lord by Pastor Ed Young
