"Love in the Present Tense"


"And from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen" (Rev. 1:5-6).
How marvelous! How wonderful is my Savior's love for me!
"How precious the Lord's people are to Him! Notwithstanding all their unworthiness and sinfulness. Notwithstanding all their departures from Him, and unkindness to Him. There is nothing on earth, or in heaven, except His only begotten Son — that is as precious to the heart of God, as His people are! God's love is always free and unchangeable. Everything outside of God will change — but His love is immutable!" ~ James Smith, 1860
The love of God is greater far Than tongue or pen can ever tell; It goes beyond the highest star, And reaches to the lowest hell; The guilty pair, bowed down with care, God gave His Son to win; His erring child He reconciled, And pardoned from his sin.
Oh, love of God, how rich and pure! How measureless and strong! It shall forevermore endure— The saints’ and angels’ song.

Love Suffering, and Bleeding, and Expiring!

(from Winslow's, "No Separation from Christ Jesus")

The love of Christ! Such a precious theme!

Of it can we ever weary? Never!

Its greatness can we ever know? Never!

Its plenitude can we fully contain? Never!

Its depths cannot be fathomed, its

dimensions cannot be measured!

It passes knowledge!

All that Jesus did for His people was but

the unfolding and expression of His love.

Traveling to Bethlehem; I see love incarnate!

Tracking his steps as he went about doing good; I see love laboring!

Visiting the house of Bethany; I see love sympathizing!

Standing by the grave of Lazarus; I see love weeping.

Entering the gloomy precincts of Gethsemane; I see love sorrowing!

Passing on to Calvary; I see love suffering, and bleeding, and expiring!

The whole scene of His life is but an unfolding of the deep,

and awesome, and precious mystery of redeeming love!


Seven Deadly Sins

By Standford E. Murrell

The Bible has a list of Deadly Sins, for sin is something God hates. Matthew Henry writes, “God hates sin; He hates every sin; He can never be reconciled to it; He hates nothing but sin. However, there are some sins that God hates in a very special way. These sins include pride, falsehood and fraud, cruelty and murder, subtlety in the contrivance of evil, vigor and diligence in the pursuit of iniquity, a false testimony, and the sowing of discord among others. The Church of Christ is blessed when these deadly sins are recognized and vigorously dealt with in self and in others. The Church of Jesus Christ suffers when these deadly sins are manifested. Unfortunately, many of these seven sins are manifested in the Church because they are socially acceptable and yet, like cancer cells undetected, they spread to produce sudden death.
