What is the Voice of God?

The only way that we can recognise or know someone’s voice is if we have spent time with them. I can hear my husband’s or children’s voice in a crowd of people because I know them so well. Even a child in a mother’s womb knows her voice and will respond to it once the … Read more

Discipleship & Tozer

The other day I picked up a copy of Discipleship by A. W. Tozer, hoping to glean some understanding of how discipleship works, how the church can disciple better and how I could disciple others.
