Jesus and Peter 15 When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my lambs.” 16 A second time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?…

He also said, “The kingdom of God is as if someone would scatter seed on the ground, and would sleep and rise night and day, and the seed would sprout and grow, he does not know how. the earth produces of itself, first the stalk, then the head, then the full grain in the head. But when the g…

(Romans 12:1-21) 1 I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that…

He has rescued us from the power of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of his beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. (Colossians 1: 13-14)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him, nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and t…

There is so much noise in our lives. There are so many things that catch and hold our attention and prevent us from having the sense of being quiet and alone. Too much noise can block our ability to hear that one special voice….God’s voice.

A great old hymn of the Church opening verse reads; “There shall be showers of blessings……” Lately we can all say we have had many rainy days. Our trees are green, flowers are extraordinarily beautiful and plentiful AND the grass. I think I can walk out onto the lawn and watch the grass grow…

Let love be genuine; hate what is evil, hold fast to what is good; love one another with mutual affection; outdo one another in showing honor. Do not lag in zeal, be ardent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in suffering, persevere in prayer. Contribute to the needs of th…

It takes a strong person to say sorry, and an even stronger person to forgive. Peter came to Jesus one day and asked him how often you should forgive someone who has offended you. Jesus responded by saying, “Seventy times seven.” This is challenging but a good spiritual discipline. As we jou…

“You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled underfoot. You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the…

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a …
