What does it look like wetted? The grain seems to match the Bacote on the upper portion of Carpdaddy's riser.
Jesus replaces the old covenant and speaks to the believer the moral code of God by His Spirit directly to the heart. He is the eternal, everlasting revelation of God to mankind. In Him is both the knowledge of righteousness and the power to live right.
