I recently read a book called “Billy Bray – The King’s Son” by F. W. Bourne. In it, Billy recounts his struggle to quit smoking. He speaks of hearing the “still small voice” say to him, “It is an idol, a lust, worship the Lord with clean lips.” Because of this he said, “So I felt it was not right to smoke.”
Close to Jesus has a new look and feel. The latest version of the website has been in development for several weeks and now provides the content with a fresh interface, but most importantly it now works on mobile devices.

The phrase, “love me” occurs nine times in the Bible. This first time it occurs is in the account of Jacob and his wives.
“And when the LORD saw that Leah was hated, he opened her womb: but Rachel was barren.” – Genesis 29:31 (KJV)
There is one thing that Leah wanted from her husband, Jacob – that he would love her.
