All Stressed up With no Where to Go
Dr. Ernest L. Easley
II Corinthians 7:4-7
Now join me tonight in the book of 2 Corinthians chapter 7. Some of you are still in the process of discovering how practical the Bible is. God's given it to us and preserved it all these years to help meet every need that we have.
