Philippians 4: 8, “Finally brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable -if anything is excellent or praiseworthy- think on such things.”  My best friends that own their own Zumba studio have been trying to amp it up for us all.

Matthew 22: 37-40, “37 Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and greatest commandment.39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” My Pastor defines love as “The accurate estimate and the adequate …

Ephesians 5: 29-30, “After all, no one hated his own body, but they feel the need to care for their body, just as Christ does the church- for we are members of His body.” Today is Valentine’s Day in the US. It’s a total man made holiday. I don’t even know how or when it got started. I do know, …

Luke 6: 27-28, “But to you who are willing to listen, I say, love your enemies! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you.” We’ve already talked about how real love is from God. So, if that’s the case, remembering to love our enemy is important. Us loving our enemy …

1 John 3:16, “We know what real love is because Jesus gave up His life for us. So we also ought to give up our lives for our brothers and sisters.” We humans tend to make the mistake in thinking that another human’s love will fulfill us and make us whole.This is far from the truth. I have made this …

1 Corinthians 13: 13, “Three things will last forever – faith, hope, and love – and the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13 is often called “The LOVE Chapter” of the Bible.

1 John 4:9, “God showed how much He loved us by sending His one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through Him. This is REAL love- not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.” 1 John chapter 4, starting …
