I'm called by the Lord to preach and teach His Word. This blog is a start to be faithful to His call on my life. It's amazing to preach the Word of the Lord and more fulfilling than I'd ever imagined!
Jeremiah 20:9 (KJV) states, "...But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay."

Scriptures on the Love of God
Since we are coming off of Valentine’s Day and the rather secular focus
on love, I thought it would be nice to simply read a few verses demonstrating
God’s love for us. For a complete devotional
on this topic, please see: God’s Valentine. This list of verses is not meant to be
exhaustive. Keep in mind, that even on
our worst days, God still loves us deeply and unconditionally. It is my heart’s prayer that you will
experience God’s love in your heart and around you through the reading of these
verses, as well as the whole of God’s Word.
Be blessed through the following verses.
TheLordthy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will
save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy
over thee with singing.
(Zephaniah 3:17 KJV)
For God so loved
the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him
should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his
Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might
He that believeth on
him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because
he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
(John 3:16-18 KJV)
Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and
every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.
He that loveth not
knoweth not God; for God is love.
In this was
manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten
Son into the world, that we might live through him.
Herein is love, not
that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the
propitiation for our sins.
Beloved, if God so
loved us, we ought also to love one another.
No man hath seen God
at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected
(1 John 4:7-12 KJV)

And we have known
and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in
love dwelleth in God, and God in him.
Herein is our love
made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he
is, so are we in this world.
There is no fear in
love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that
feareth is not made perfect in love.
We love him, because
he first loved us.
If a man say, I love
God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother
whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?
And this commandment
have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.
(1 John 4:16-21 KJV)
A new commandment
I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also
love one another.
By this shall all
men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
If ye keep my
commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's
commandments, and abide in his love.
These things have I
spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be
This is my
commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
(John 15:10-12 KJV)
Greater love hath
no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
(John 15:13 KJV)
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that,
while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
(Romans 5:8 KJV)
what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called
the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.
(1 John 3:1 KJV)
