Living For An Audience Of One

I remember when I first came to the Lord, I used to get so frustrated and I would feel very discouraged because before I came to the Lord, I had a PhD in being a people-pleaser.  When I came to the Lord, I would find myself being so disappointed when people did not respond in a way that I thought that they should respond.

Love As A Lifestyle

Let’s talk today about love.  What would happen if we loved people from different walks of life?  Not based on their educational background or on their financial status or ethnicity – what would happen if we loved people that way? Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.  Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality....
