This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

Deuteronomy is: Deuteronomy 14:15

(14:3-21); tithing (14:22-29); (d) the seventh year or year of release

3-21; cf. 1: Cor. 6:12, 13; 10:23, 31); (c) to money and possessions (verses
22-28; cf. 1 Cor. 16:2)?

teach concerning (a) redemption through Christ; (b) the Christian’s duty of putting
the need of his brother before his own rights (cf. Mt. 5:38-42); (c) equality
in the Church of God (cf. Acts 2: 44; 4:34; 2 Cor. 8:14)?
