Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. - 1 Peter 4:16

and gave to all mankind so
that everyone can fulfill
His will for their lives. This
Book contains everything we
need to know to obtain eternal life as
well as all that God plans for us after
salvation. God gave us His Word, His
thoughts, so thatthrough the power of the Holy Spirit we can know and obey Him and thereby glorify Him and obtain eternal riches beyond imagination.
