The Gift Of The Holy Spirit

dsc_0458-publish

“…And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God.  Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.

And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.”

Romans 5:2-5

The Way Of Faith

dsc_1554-publish

The words of Jesus while speaking with his disciples in private as recorded in the Gospel according to Luke…

“Then he said to them all:  “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.  For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it.

What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit his very self?”

Luke 9:23-25

Give True Love

DSC01209 publish

“Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

1 Corinthians 13:4-7
