NAACP Sees Continued Rise in Hate Crimes, Legacy of Trump’s Racism

The Living Word
Hebrews 4: 15-16

King James Version

15:  For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin.

 

16:  Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
