Three Things God Desires For Us

Three things God desires for us, among many others, are that we experience the fullness of Love, Joy, and Peace. These are exactly what God sent Jesus into this world to bring to us. John 3:16 says,  “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son …” His coming was heralded […]

Attributes Of Jesus

Attributes Of Jesus

  In addition to the beautiful characteristics of Jesus enumerated in Isaiah 9:6, the scripture shows us numerous attributes that He extends toward us, and when we see these in Him they are a reflection of the Father; likewise when we see them in the father they are a reflection of Him, for He said, […]

Bonding Faith

Bonding Faith

Probably the greatest picture of bonding in the natural world is found in true marriage when laying aside the modern trend, where marriage is entered into lightly, and then at the early signs of difficulty or of one not getting their own way, there is separation and divorce, with each treading their own path. True […]

The Power Of Love In God’s Word

The Power Of Love In God’s Word

The written word, the Logos, enjoins us to love each other. As far back as Leviticus 19:18, God said, “you shall love your neighbor as yourself”.

God’s Love Revealed Through His Word

God’s love is declared to us in one of the most classic verses in the Bible, John 3:16, which says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son…” Love is very costly; love sacrifices everything for its object. God’s love for us is a sacrificial love that caused Him to […]

Seeking

Seeking

In Philippians 3:10, “that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection…” is the goal of the apostle Paul. The Contemporary English version says, “All I want is to know Christ and the power that raised Him to life”. Are you seeking to know Him, or are you merely seeking to know about Him? Are […]

Undivided Love

Undivided Love

In 1 John 4:19, the beloved Apostle wrote, “We love Him because He first loved us.” The first and foremost thing that God desires from us is that we love Him in return for His love for us. In Deuteronomy 6:5, He said to His people, “you shall love the Lord your God with all […]

The Beauty Of The Lily

The Beauty Of The Lily

The Song of Solomon, ancient love poetry, can be very difficult for modern Westerners to understand. A love discourse between king Solomon and the Shulamite, which we rightly apply to Christ and the church; 2:1 is generally applied to the King (Christ) by the Christian fathers, but to the bride by Hebrew commentators. It seems […]

We Are Family

We Are Family

 While the word family only occurs one time in the King James New Testament (Ephesians 3:15), there are many references alluding to the fact that God views us (born-again Christians) as family, assuming the role of our Father, making us His children, and bonding us together as brothers and sisters. One of His greatest concerns […]
