A Decade of Secrets This nation has once again been shocked! The developments in Cleveland where three young women had been allegedly kidnapped and held captive for a decade or more have sent shock waves through the news outlets that are still being talked about. There were ten years of captivity and abuse-sexually, physically, and psychologically. How could this have happened? How could someone have not known? How could this have been hidden all these years?

The Lord Saw Their Disobedience When Paul penned his first epistle to the saints at Corinth, he informed these brethren that he experienced weakness, fear, and much trembling during the time of his work there (I Corinthians 2:3). In an attempt to ease Paul’s fears and troubled spirit regarding the tense circumstances he faced while working at Corinth, the Lord said, “I am with you, and no one will attack you to hurt you; for I have many people in this city” (Acts 18:10). By stating this, God promised the apostle Paul divine protection while he was laboring in the city of Corinth. The Scripture affirms that God is truthful and faithful in all things (I Corinthians 1:9; 10:13; II Peter 3:9)

It was learned that he was on his cell phone at the time.

If you want to be considered a good conversationalist, focus on the other person. Ask them questions about themselves, their family, their lives. They will leave the conversation feeling good about themselves and the conversation. They enjoyed their conversation with you.

To Endure In 1 Corinthians 15:58 Paul wrote, “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” Notice the idea of steadfastness and being unmoveable while being actively involved in the Lord’s work.
