The love of JESUS CHRIST changes our lives through faith. We try our best to never sin or be the sinners we were. We are all a work in progress, and may we all pray through our changes and through all things. Prayer is power.
Love the LORD with all your heart. Love your neighbor as yourself. Love your enemies. Pray for all people.
Pleae pray the LORD's PRAYER and please read:
15 What is the implication? That we are free to sin, now that we are not under law but under grace? Out of the question!
16 You know well that if you undertake to be somebody's slave and obey him, you are the slave of him you obey: you can be the slave either of sin which leads to death, or of obedience which leads to saving justice.
17 Once you were slaves of sin, but thank God you have given whole-hearted obedience to the pattern of teaching to which you were introduced;
18 and so, being freed from serving sin, you took uprightness as your master.
19 I am putting it in human terms because you are still weak human beings: as once you surrendered yourselves as servants to immorality and to a lawlessness which results in more lawlessness, now you have to surrender yourselves to uprightness which is to result in sanctification.
20 When you were the servants of sin, you felt no obligation to uprightness,
21 and what did you gain from living like that? Experiences of which you are now ashamed, for that sort of behaviour ends in death.
22 But, now you are set free from sin and bound to the service of God, your gain will be sanctification and the end will be eternal life.
23 For the wage paid by sin is death; the gift freely given by God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
GOD BLESS US ALL,
A little proof reading goes a long ways.
