TWENTY Top 20 - WORSHIP

TwentyTop20WORSHIP

TWENTY Top 20 - WORSHIP

This is the thirteenth post in my blog series called "TWENTY Top 20".  We are celebrating 2020 (and celebrating this unique decade) with this series.  In this series there will be a total of twenty different categories featuring the top 20 previously published posts on that topic.  Once or twice a month I will feature a new category.  
It certainly seems like the First Amendment, specifically "Freedom to Worship", has been under attack lately.  Not just a result of the Pandemic but this constant attack and mockery comes from the extreme left.  This is why, today we are going to focus on WORSHIP.
ENJOY!

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#1
1 Corinthians 13 VERSE#2
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).
