Dear friends,

These nuggets of insight from the word of God are a product of my daily devotional life. I originally began to create and send them to my children. Others saw them and urged me to make them available to the public. I am so happy to be afforded the opportunity to share them with our MJAA family and pray that they might provide aid and comfort to many as they have for me.

I encourage you to subscribe today.

For Messiah’s glory,

Joel Chernoff
MJAA General Secretary
