as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

  • We take EVERYTHING to our Father in Heaven.

In Christ, we no longer fear death, punishment for sin, nor anything this world may do to us, for He has overcome.

VerseD: Romans 15:13
