God’s Word Stands!

The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever. (Isaiah 40:8 KJV)

What Love REALLY looks like

I Corinthians 4-8 (Amplified Bible)

4Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily.

5It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].

6It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail.

7Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening].

8Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end]. As for prophecy ([a]the gift of interpreting the divine will and purpose), it will be fulfilled and pass away; as for tongues, they will be destroyed and cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away [it will lose its value and be superseded by truth].

Knowing God’s Voice

John 10:27- My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:

The Bible says that we should know the voice of God. In order to hear and know his voice, that will require us to spend time in prayer and studying his Word. Once we do, we will be able to discern the thoughts and voice of God. We live in a world where we are bombarded with the thoughts and feelings of others almost every minute of every day. It is important to slow down, separate time and seek the face of God. Knowing his voice and receiving his instruction is a blessing that comes with very deliberate effort on our part. Isn’t it exciting that we have a God who desires to help us and give us direction? Let’s take advantage of that!

Happy Resurrection Sunday!

Romans 6:4-Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

Psalm 133:1- Behold, how good and how pleasant [it is] for brethren to dwell together in unity!

God is pleased with UNITY in the body of Christ!

Jeremiah 3:14

Turn, O backsliding children, saith the LORD; for I am married unto you: and I will take you one of a city, and two of a family, and I will bring you to Zion:

Psalm 25:15

Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
