Love the LORD with all your heart. Christ is the light of our lives.
Love to all, and may the love of JESUS be the love we share with the world. Showing how this love has changed us and has showed us peace. Showing the world how this love has given us a joy that surpasses all understanding. Showing the world how this love as made a way out of no way. Jesus love. May we never forget, and always live according to it. Praise GOD from whom all blessings flow.
Please pray the LORD's PRAYER and please read:
1 Since you have been raised up to be with Christ, you must look for the things that are above, where Christ is, sitting at God's right hand.
2 Let your thoughts be on things above, not on the things that are on the earth,
3 because you have died, and now the life you have is hidden with Christ in God.
4 But when Christ is revealed -- and he is your life-you, too, will be revealed with him in glory.
5 That is why you must kill everything in you that is earthly: sexual vice, impurity, uncontrolled passion, evil desires and especially greed, which is the same thing as worshipping a false god;
6 it is precisely these things which draw God's retribution upon those who resist.
7 And these things made up your way of life when you were living among such people,
8 but now you also must give up all these things: human anger, hot temper, malice, abusive language and dirty talk;
9 and do not lie to each other. You have stripped off your old behaviour with your old self,
10 and you have put on a new self which will progress towards true knowledge the more it is renewed in the image of its Creator;
11 and in that image there is no room for distinction between Greek and Jew, between the circumcised and uncircumcised, or between barbarian and Scythian, slave and free. There is only Christ: he is everything and he is in everything.
12 As the chosen of God, then, the holy people whom he loves, you are to be clothed in heartfelt compassion, in generosity and humility, gentleness and patience.
13 Bear with one another; forgive each other if one of you has a complaint against another. The Lord has forgiven you; now you must do the same.
14 Over all these clothes, put on love, the perfect bond.
15 And may the peace of Christ reign in your hearts, because it is for this that you were called together in one body. Always be thankful.
16 Let the Word of Christ, in all its richness, find a home with you. Teach each other, and advise each other, in all wisdom. With gratitude in your hearts sing psalms and hymns and inspired songs to God;
17 and whatever you say or do, let it be in the name of the Lord Jesus, in thanksgiving to God the Father through him.
Thank you, jesus4life.
It is a tall order, but I know I must try each day to do those things Paul describes here.
God bless you, and FRegards
AMEN!! Thanks for your reply and honesty.
I am the same as you. I will just keep trying.
Trying from the heart is what HE wants.
Never give up.
We are all a work in progress. HE knows what we truly want to do from our hearts.
Every day of life shows how much HE loves us.
We know HE can end our physical and spiritual lives at any time, but, HIS love, grace and mercy endures forever.
HE gives us so much time to “ get it together”.
May we all keep trying to walk by faith and not by sight.
Love to all in Jesus holy and precious name,
