John 1:40-42

“One of the two who heard John speak and followed Jesus was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. He first found his own brother Simon and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means Christ). He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon the son of John. You shall […]

John 1:10-13

“He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, who were […]

John 1:6-7, 41, 45

John 1:6-7 “There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

Galatians 5:16

“But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.” The more we fill ourselves with God and his righteousness, the less room there is for our fleshly desires and sinfulness! Our victory and peace are not obtained by efforts to keep sin out of our lives, rather […]

Galatians 5:14

“For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”” As a Christian, there is no excuse for a lack of love for the people that are put in your path. If we love God with everything we have, and we love others as much as we love ourselves, […]

Galatians 5:4-6

“You who are trying to be justified by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace. For through the Spirit we eagerly await by faith the righteousness for which we hope. For in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision has any value. The only thing that counts is faith expressing […]
