Unshakeable (part 4): Lessons of Unshakeable Faith, Pastor David Welch

January 28, 2024


35 “Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. 36 For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised. 37 For, “Yet a little while, and the coming one will come and will not delay;
 1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”




The Idea:
