The “Love Chapter” of the Bible is the nickname given to 1 Corinthians 13, every day if becomes clear that we need to read it again and again. Especially considering the mark of the church summed up in John 13:35 is simply that they will know we are His disciples by our love. If you … Continue reading The Love Chapter, Read it Again.

There may be times you feel like you are getting no where in your church, but you are gaining … Continue reading Church Hopscotch
"Take courage; for I believe God, and am convinced that things will happen exactly as I have been told." - Acts 27:25 (Weymouth)

(Originally posted 10/12/2009 on Jessica Taylor Cappel's blog: The FAITH DRIVEN Life) Wow, this verse is pretty clear! Those who think they are exempt from correction and discipline are illegitimate offspring of God... That's not my opinion that is what the Bible says, puts a fire under you to make sure you are listening to … Continue reading I Want to be a True Child of God
