Is God asking you to radically change something in your life? Is there a behavior he wants gone? Is there something He is telling you to give away to someone in need? Is He telling you to go to a foreign land to tell others about Him? If you are a true Christian, God is always telling you something. Listen. Take time and listen. It’s for your own benefit, not His. 

What many Americans have feared is now reality.

Ebola multiples
