Recipe for the Christian Life - LOVE

SundayRECIPElove

Recipe for the Christian Life - LOVE

Today is the eighth post in the series on growing in our Christian Walk.  Developing a Christian life is kind of like baking a recipe - good ingredients create a perfect treat.  Adding good characteristics to our faith produces good Christians.

If you recall, a few months ago we started with an empty mixing bowl - our FAITHAnd then we've been adding to our faith, we combined: GOODNESS , KNOWLEDGE , SELF-CONTROL , PERSEVERANCE , GODLINESS and KINDNESS.
Today we are going to add in LOVE.


It's always good to start with the very basic definition of "love" (from online dictionaries):

love - an intense feeling of deep affection, to hold dear, devotedness, fondness, .

SundayRECIPElove2

The verses listed above are so precious - God strengthens us from within!  This Scripture passage states it so clearly, Jesus dwells in our hearts through faith!!!

The entire chapter of 1 Corinthians 13 is all about love.  A few years ago we studied some of these verses in detail 
(click on each verse listed below the pictures to view each post):

1 Corinthians 13 VERSE#3
1 Corinthians 13 VERSE#4
1 Corinthians 13 VERSE#5

1 Corinthians 13 VERSE#6
1 Corinthians 13 VERSE#7

It is really impossible for us to truly understand how vast God's love is for ALL of us!!  Look at the verses below - "to grasp how wide and how long and how high and how deep is the love of Christ."  And verse 19, to me describes God's love as a heaping cup - it's overflowing! "that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God."


SundayRECIPElove3


Adding LOVE to our FAITH is the most important of all the ingredients.  In 1 Corinthians it says:


"......faith, hope and love.  But the greatest of these is love." 
(1 Corinthians 13:13)

Next week will be the final part in this series.  We have one more characteristic to add to the GOODNESS, KNOWLEDGE, SELF-CONTROL, PERSEVERANCE,  GODLINESS, KINDNESS & LOVE in our faith (from 2 Peter 1:3-11).

Fun Fridays #42 - THE DAY I MET MY SISTER

by Angie Ouellette-Tower for http://www.godsgrowinggarden.com/ photo DSCF7791_zpsl7swvr3u.jpg

Fun Fridays #42 - THE DAY I MET MY SISTER
Happiness and laughter are so good for our health!
"A happy heart makes the face cheerful" Proverbs 15:13
(click HERE to read the health benefits of laughter)

This is a series called:  "Fun Fridays".  On the first Friday of every month I will share with you an old photo or something from the recent past that made me happy;  in hopes that it will at least make you smile 😊

IMG_0012
I had been told for months that I would soon have a sibling (this was before gestational ultrasounds), but at the age of almost 4 years old, I didn't truly understand what that meant.  It was a hot summer day when I first met my sister.  Now, decades after this picture was taken (and after much aging - haha) , she is still my precious little sister.
ENJOY!
