Indeed, I count everything as loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord. For His sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ.
…Let your life be centred on Jesus & your focus be on Him, that your choices may bring honour to God & not self.
We have a high priest who can feel it when we are weak and hurting.
Salvation comes no other way; no other name has been or will be given to us by which we can be saved, only this one.
His life is the light that shines through the darkness—and the darkness can never extinguish it.
1 John 4:17-18
Love is made perfect in us when we are not ashamed as we stand before Him on the day He judges. For we know that our life in this world is His life lived in us. There is no fear in love. Perfect love puts fear out of our hearts. People have fear when they are afraid of being punished. The man who is afraid does not have perfect love.
God is love!
Strive to live in peace with everybody and pursue that consecration and holiness without which no one will [ever] see the Lord.
2 Corinthians 5:14
Whatever we do, it is certainly not for our own profit but because Christ’s love controls us now. Since we believe that Christ died for all of us, we should also believe that we have died to the old life we used to live.
