This sermon is beautiful in the sense that we receive the Bible verse and John explains the details very well. I enjoyed reading the stories and the points were very convincing. I like the 80% part of it the most. Thank you very much. To God be the glory.

Thankyou for reminding me of what's of more value than silver and gold. Your sermons have a way of not making me feel guilty but encouraging me to be my best self for God.
