Always love thy neighbor as thyself

"Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

Take time to give thanks

We are now entering the holiday season, which traditionally kicks off when we celebrate Thanksgiving. I feel we should remind ourselves of the importance of this time of giving thanks.

True believers must live out God's life

In Ephesians, the Holy Spirit, in and through Paul, reveals what Jesus Christ did for every believer. Every faithful believer has life only in Jesus Christ, meaning believers live and act in the Lord's sphere. Believers have unions with Christ, fellowship with Him, relationships with Him and they are intimate with Him. Believers are in love with Jesus Christ and they fall more in love with Him daily.
