OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TEENS MONDAY 30TH APRIL 2018

An example of someone who pride and anger almost destroyed is Naaman, Pride is a terrible thing; it is a blindfold that veils the mind of its

The Savior who died on the cross?
3. Is your life a channel of blessing?
Is it a daily telling for Him?
Have you spoken the word of salvation
To those who are dying in sin?
4. We cannot be channels of blessing
If our lives are not free from known sin;
We will barriers be and a hindrance
To those we are trying to win
