A homeless man known for toting his "God Bless You" sign around the Indianapolis area received a welcomed surprise this month when the local police force partnered to provide him with a new pair of sneakers.
Members of the Lawrence Police Department announced in a recent Facebook post that they were able to convince the Indiana Pacers NBA team to donate a pair of size 17 shoes to a local homeless man, who exceeds seven feet in height.
"We were informed of this wonderful act of compassion shown by one of our Reserve Officers, who is so humble that he doesn't wish to be recognized. The story needs to be told nevertheless. This is exemplary of the law enforcement profession, and speaks highly to the character of the officers at LPD," the police department announced earlier this month. more >>

The book of Romans has been called "the cathedral of the Christian faith," and "the chief book of the New Testament." Martin Luther described Paul's epistle to the Romans as "a light and way" to all of Scripture. Luther said it "deserves not only to be known word for word by every Christian, but to be the subject of his meditation day by day, the daily bread of his soul."
One cannot overstate the richness of Romans. It is a theological treatise par excellence, inspired by the Holy Spirit and overflowing with insight. And once you wrap your mind around the doctrine in Romans, you will find yourself grounded in the Gospel and in the spiritual dynamics of the Christian life.
Having said that, the seventh chapter of Romans has been a source of disagreement over the years, and particularly verses 14-25. Some believers have concluded that Paul was referring here to his previous life before he became a Christian. Many others are convinced verses 14-25 can only be describing Paul's life as a Christian. I hold the latter view. I believe this passage describes not only the apostle's Christian experience, but also the experience of every believer. more >>

2) Joshua 10:25 "Joshua said to them, 'Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Be strong and courageous. This is what the Lord will do to all the enemies you are going to fight.'" more >>
