God is Love...

ย If Christ Jesus dwells in a man as his friend and noble leader,
that man can endure all things,
for Christ helps and strengthens us and never abandons us.
He is a true friend.

~Saint Teresa of Avila

We love him, because he first loved us.

Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.

(NIV)

“Keep love in your heart.
A life without it is like a sunless garden
when the flowers are dead.”

“Love is like a beautiful flower
which I may not touch,
but whose fragrance makes the garden
a place of delight just the same.”

~Helen Keller

Live in Such a Way…โ™ฅโ™ฅ

Standard

7.Dear friends, let us love one another,ย for love comes from God.
Everyone who loves has been born of Godย and knows God.
8ย Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
9ย This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Sonย into the world that we might live through him.
10ย This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved usย and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
11ย Dear friends,ย since God so loved us,ย we also ought to love one another.
12ย No one has ever seen God;ย but if we love one another,
God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.โ™ฅ

1 JOHN 4:7-12

Now Faith…

Standard

Now faith is confidence in what we hope forย and assurance about what we do not see.

~Hebrews 11:1

for everyone born of Godย overcomesย the world.
This is the victory that has overcome the world,
even our faith.
1 John 5:4

And without faith it is impossible to please God,
because anyone who comes to himย must believe that he exists
and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

Hebrews 11:6
