Love Deeply

To love deeply is a beautiful secret of life. A famous quote from Helen Keller is:

All that we love deeply becomes a part of us.

Loving God deeply (with all your heart, all your mind, and all your soul Matthew 22:37), He becomes a part of us. If we love our spouses and children deeply, they become a part of us. That deep love creates kindness in ourselves and those we deeply love, and as we become part of each other, we better serve God's purpose with the love we share.

This doesn't mean impersonation or trying to be someone we aren't. It's a natural occurrence that happens over many years. And that means that whenever someone dies - someone we love deeply - they will live on through us. And we live on through those who love us deeply once we pass from this earthly life.

That's why it's so important to stay focused on God and His will. What can we pass on to the next generation so God won't be lost in the generations that come after us? Love! Be kind, be forgiving, be gentle, be understanding. True, we can't love strangers deeply, but if we love God deeply, we feel and "give" His love to others. How would God or Jesus treat this person? The Holy Spirit may be working on someone, and the instant they feel God's love through our actions or words, that may be the turning point for them to accept Christ as Savior. Or the opposite if we don't show love through our actions or words. Sadly, that happens more frequently than the other does. So, let's concentrate more on having Christ-like love, thoughts, and actions to pass on to future generations, to perhaps help someone decide to finally convert to Christianity.

Smiles and love in Christ,

Love Never Fails

 After Saul (Paul) was converted from Judaism, in which he was a trained priest, to Christianity on the road to Damascus, he spent a few years learning how to be a better person for God's new work in Christ. After God prepared him, Paul started preaching the Good News to people in different cities. One of those cities was Corinth in Greece. When Paul needed to correct - or praise - some teachings of the churches that were established in these cities but couldn't get back to them right away, he would write them letters. One of these letters (often called epistles) is called I Corinthians in the Holy Bible.  The message I want to bring to your attention today is what Paul was telling this church about love. He told them in verse 16:14 to, " Do everything with love. " (NLT) The NKJV read as, " Let all that you do be done with love. " What a difference we could make in the world if we could all follow this beautiful advice.  In the same Book of I Corinthians 13:
