For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the prostitutes believed him. And even when you saw it, you did not afterward change your minds and believe him. (Matthew 21:32 ESV)
ибо пришел к вам Иоанн путем праведности, и вы не поверили ему, а мытари и блудницы поверили ему; вы же, и видев это, не раскаялись после, чтобы поверить ему. (От Матфея 21:32 Russian)
Almighty God, our dear Heavenly Father ~ thank you for the many and varied blessings that you daily shower upon all people and especially those who trust and obey Jesus as Lord. Lift up the often feeble hands of those who tirelessly labor to preach the truth in love in places and circumstances where their labors are not acknowledged. Open the hearts and minds of those who hear the truth yet refuse to repent and live as good and faithful servants of Christ. We ardently pray in the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
David Binkley, Sr. Gospel Minister
