Be Strong

God didn’t give us a cowardly spirit but a spirit of power, love, and good judgment. ~2 Timothy 1:7

Real Love

Dear children, we must show love through actions that are sincere, not through empty words. ~1 John 3:18

So This is Love . . .

God has shown us his love by sending his only Son into the world so that we could have life through him ~1 John 4:9

The Greatest Commandment

Jesus answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind [Deuteronomy 6:5].’ This is the first and greatest command. And the second command is like the first: ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself [Leviticus 19:18].’ ~Matthew 22:37-39

I Know The Plans . . .

I know the plans that I have for you, declares Yahweh. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope. Then you will call to me. You will come and pray to me, and I will hear you. When you look for me, you will find me. When you wholeheartedly seek me, I will let you find me, declares Yahweh ~Jeremiah 29:11-13

Those who make evil plans will be ruined and wander aimlessly, but those who plan to do good will be loved and trusted. ~Proverbs 14:22

More About Love

The commandments, “Never commit adultery; never murder; never steal; never have wrong desires,” and every other commandment are summed up in this statement: “Love your neighbor as you love yourself.” Love never does anything that is harmful to a neighbor. Therefore, love fulfills Moses’ Teachings ~Romans 13:9-10

The Secret of Relating

Whoever forgives an offense seeks love, but whoever keeps bringing up the issue separates the closest of friends ~Proverbs 17:9

What Is Love?

God has shown us his love by sending his only Son into the world so that we could have life through him. This is love: not that we have loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the payment for our sins.

Dear friends, if this is the way God loved us, we must also love each other. No one has ever seen God. If we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is perfected in us. We know that we live in him and he lives in us because he has given us his Spirit. ~I John 4:9-13

Absolutely Convinced . . .

I have become absolutely convinced that neither death nor life, neither messenger of Heaven nor monarch of earth, neither what happens today nor what may happen tomorrow, neither a power from on high nor a power from below, nor anything else in God’s whole world has any power to separate us from the love of God in Jesus Christ our Lord! ~Romans 8:38-39
