Wanted: Men who will Deepen their Walk with God
There is a pathway to walking with God called truth.
Truth sets us free, truth guards our way, and truth opens us to commune with God.
Every man who commits to the way of truth, starts down the Psalm 15 pathway into a close walk each day with God. Just as Proverbs 31 describes the woman of excellence, Psalm 15 describes the man of godliness.
Are you ready to deepen your walk with God?
Against this gloomy backdrop of forces within our fallen, sinful flesh to sweep us away from God is the old path. God has the way of obedience and righteousness called holiness. Listen to God ask you and me, each of us men to his presence.
