Title: Our love towards God and others will be tested

Main Text: Mark 12:29-31

Preacher: Pastor Paul Orimolusi

The Devil tempts but God tests.
The Devil sets a snare and works hard to push us into his trap.

However, when God tests His children, He provides the Grace to pass His tests
We are going to get tested by God, but the reward if we pass is promotion.

5) Our Faith

2) The way we speak about others (e.g do we backbite or you a hypocrite)?
