The Pilgrim

The One to Trust

by Paul Massop


Who do I trust? I trust he who took away sins for all mankind, that so whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. I trust him to make a straight and narrow path for his beloved children. He protects his people. He said "no weapon against me shall prosper." Not only do I trust him, I love him. We can't fully understand the Lord through the Bible, but  if you have a personal relationship with him, he will answer your questions because as he said: Ask and it shall be opened, seek and you shall find.
