Beyond the Limits

God is able and capable to do anything, but mankind limits Him. In fact, Jesus could not perform many miracles in His hometown because of their lack of faith. Therefore, Jesus is not limited by His ability, but by ours. We have to participate in His ability by not limiting Him. Bishop Hargrove gives three […]

The Manifestation of God’s Spirit
