The Christian walk can become dull and monotonous, if we allow it. Our God loves excitement and spontaneity. The book of Revelations often paints a very colorful picture of worship in heaven.

Our homes, our places of worship should radiate this frequency of heaven. There should be joy, happiness and laughter.

Light is being shown on hidden issues.
The Lord’s approach as not changed.
