76 - Chronological Bible Reading of Scriptures

Zeal – Faith – Fervor! By Frances Ridley Havergal

“The king’s business required haste” (1 Sam. 21:8). Yet there is no other business about which average Christians take it so easy. They “must” go their usual round, they “must” write their letters, they “must” pay off their visits and other social claims, they “must” do all that is expected of them.... Read More
