Praise To The Gracious God

The LORD is gracious and merciful; slow to anger and great in lovingkindness.
The LORD is good to all, and His mercies are over all His works.
All Your works shall give thanks to You, O LORD, and Your godly ones shall bless You.
They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom and talk of Your power;
To make know to the sons of men Your mighty acts and the glory of the majesty of Your kingdom.
Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and Your dominion endures throughout all generations.
Psalm 145:8-13 (NASB)

Dead Branches

“I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5 (NASB)
A branch has no resources from which to bring forth fruit except it be connected to the vine. The vine provides life, power, ability to produce fruit. The believer is connected to the true vine, Jesus Christ—and it is through Him, by His power, that we are enabled to produce fruit.
We need to be alert lest the devil cause us to center our minds on something aside from Jesus—causing us to break fellowship with Him; and if the master deceiver can cause us to become occupied with ourselves, self-willed, and self-centered, we are no better than a branch severed from a vine. The most painfully deluded person on earth is a Christian who, in witnessing for Christ, glories in his own attainments and victories. The more fully we are dedicated to Christ, the more fully He controls us—soul, spirit, and body—the less notoriety we desire for ourselves and the more honor and glory we will bestow upon His name.

What Is Love – Helen Steiner Rice

What is love? No words can define it—
It’s something so great
only God could design it.
For love means much more
than small words can express,
For what we call love is very much less
Than the beauty and depth
and the true riches of
God’s gift to mankind—
His compassionate love.
Helen Steiner Rice

A Christian’s life is a window through which others can see Jesus
