Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
The Lord is my strength and my shield; in Him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to Him.
The friendship of the Lord is for those who fear Him, and He makes known to them His covenant.
Purpose to get close enough & quiet enough to know God’s heartbeat for you.
May God’s love drive and dominate our responses to life and to others.
1 John 4:12
For though we have never yet seen God, when we love each other God lives in us, and His love within us grows ever stronger.
He went on: “It’s what comes out of a person that pollutes: obscenities, lusts, thefts, murders, adulteries, greed, depravity, deceptive dealings, carousing, mean looks, slander, arrogance, foolishness—all these are vomit from the heart. There is the source of your pollution.”
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
For God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son so that anyone who believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
When God shows us His favour, when He offers His forgiveness, His love, His mercy, His grace, His protection, His provision… He does so freely, but that favour did not come cheap.
