I want to share that apart from Christ, we can do nothing ………. That means nothing , NO-thing, projects that have been completed without the leading and direction of his holy inspiration will come to ruin in time.

As you get the honor of leading ministry, focus on the backing that you have in Christ. Focus on giving those you serve the oppurtunity to share the joy you have.
