Stride forward with a firm steady step knowing,
with a deed certain inner knowing,
that you will reach every goal you set yourselves,
that you will achieve every aim.

For we are his workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus for good works,
which God prepared beforehand,
that we should walk in them.

♥ Love like that ♥

Standard

Ephesians 5  1

Watch what God does, and then you do it,
like children who learn proper behavior from their parents.
Mostly what God does is love you.
Keep company with him and learn a life of love.
Observe how Christ loved us.
His love was not cautious but extravagant.
He didn’t love in order to get something from us
but to give everything of himself to us.
Love like that.♥

Ephesians 5:1-2

If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, LIVE at PEACE WITH EVERYONE..  ~Romans 12:18

Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
EPHESIANS 4:3

Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.

Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.

Alive in Christ♥

Standard

♥ As for you, you were dead in your transgressions and sins, 
2
 in which you used to live when you followed the ways of this world and of the ruler of the kingdom of the air,
the spirit who is now at work in those who are disobedient. 
3
 All of us also lived among them at one time,
gratifying the cravings of our flesh and following its desires and thoughts.
Like the rest, we were by nature deserving of wrath. 
4
 But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, 
5
 made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. 
6
 And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, 
7
 in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. 
8
For it is by grace you have been saved,
through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the
gift of God 
9
 not by works, so that no one can boast. 
10
 For we are God’s handiwork,
created in Christ Jesus to do good works,

which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Live your life with love,
following the example of Christ,
who loved us and gave himself for us.
He was a sacrificial offering that smelled sweet to God.

We are now God’s children, and we know him.

But if someone loves God,
then they are known by God.
