“For me, it was when I accepted my role as a child of God that I became most comfortable with Him and unafraid. It is as a child of God that I found the relationship with my Lord that I had been searching. It is as His child that have been able to experience His love in a way that only a child can perceive, trust, understand, and return love. There is an innocence in a child’s love that casts off the noise and warnings of the material world and speaks to the eternal heart.”
“Our faith, love for God, and love for one another collided, deepening our love in a way that we had never felt before – and giving us a reservoir of strength to draw on that often felt not of this world.”
Love is the signature of God that He has written across our hearts.
The early Christians were an Easter People. In the darkest hours before the dawn following Christ’s crucifixion, they did not lose faith in Jesus – nor in His promise that He would return.
It is the flaws we perceive in others that reflect those we fear about ourselves.
If we are complacent, defiant, or otherwise refuse to be taught, our path will lead us away from wisdom — and away from the Lord.
Christ transcends all nationalities and world divides; Christ belongs to no one — He belongs to everyone.
