True Love

“Baby, if you love me, then you’ll sleep with me” This popular line tries to manipulate people into doing things to prove their love. Is this true love? Seriously?

God selflessly turns that around and says “Because I love you, I will do something for you. I will sacrifice myself for you.”

“But it was our sins that did that to Him, that ripped and tore and crushed Him – our sins! He took the punishment, and that made us whole. Through His bruises we get healed” Isaiah 53:5 (

Now that’s real love! Thank Him for His love right now.



Charles Spurgeon said, “If you wish to know God, you must know His word. If you wish to perceive His power, you must see how He works by His word. If you wish to know His purpose before it comes to pass, you can only discover it by His word.”

Read Psalm 119:9-16 (

Everything we need to KNOW God, is in His word, the Bible. If you want to get to know His power, see His works, know His purpose – all of this and more will be found in His word.

Read it, think about it, apply it to your life.



You are mine

We all long to find Our Person and live happily ever after. We want everyone to know that we belong togetherforever. And that may even lead to marriage and sharing the same name!

God sees us as His. We belong to him and to no one else. He’s given us a new name and a new start and He’s never, ever going to leave us alone.

“But now, this is what the LORD says – He who created you, O Jacob, He who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine” Isaiah 43:1 (



J.I. Packer is a British evangelical theologian – he is still alive, he’s 92 years old and became a Christian more than 70 years ago – WOW! He has spent most of his life getting to know God. This is one of his very well-known statements, “There’s a difference between knowing God and knowing about God. When you truly know God, you have energy to serve Him, boldness to share Him, and contentment in Him.”

This quote reminds me of the verse found in John 17:3 – read it here:

Do you just know about God or are you getting to know Him?
