The Power of the Gospel


This issue of Israel My Glory is all about the importance of being born again. It’s about the power of the gospel and how Jesus Christ can take someone who is down and out or up and out and change that person’s life for the good for eternity. There is nothing more wonderful or rewarding in this life than having a personal relationship with God. He alone can give you love, hope, peace, joy, and life everlasting.
IMG In Depth: Our radio host, Chris Katulka, interviews our Editor-in-Chief Lorna Simcox along with Steve Herzig about this issue.
