Bible Verses To Strengthen Your Faith

The fact that we experience times when our faith seems to be slipping away comes as no surprise to our Father. He always knows what we need, when we need it and even though we don’t always realize it, He has already given it to us. Everything we need to get us through the difficult seasons in our lives can be found in the scriptures.

The Pattern Of Gracious Love

If a person owns the kinds of things we need to make it in this world but refuses to share with those in need, is it even possible that God’s love lives in him?

My little children, I’m writing these things to you so that you don’t sin. But if you do sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous one. He is God’s way of dealing with our sins, not only ours but the sins of the whole world.

Day 25 | No Condemnation

John 8: 1-19 The Pharisees brought a woman to Christ who had committed adultery. They were zealous in their desire not only to judge her sin, but to subject her to a gruesome death as well. *Note, It is common for those that are indulgent to their own sin to be severe against the sins of others. ~Matthew Henry~ When Jesus addressed the crowd His [...]
