Verse of The Day
“Na, kua riro na te Ariki, a Karaiti Ihu i a koutou, kia pena ano ta koutou haere i roto i a ia; Kia whai pakiaka, ano he whare i hanga ki runga ki a ia, whakapumau rawa ki runga ki to koutou whakapono, kia pera me koutou i whakaakona ra, kia hira rawa ai te whakawhetai.” (Colossians 2:6-7)
