The LORD is
my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my
life; of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalm 27:1).
Christians know Jesus Christ as their SAVIOUR, which is wonderful, but knowing
Him as your SALVATION will completely revolutionize your life and take your

have Him, you have it all. When Thomas, one of the disciples, said to Him,
“Lord, show us the way,” the Master, unequivocally replied, “I
