heart of love

John 15:10-12  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 full. This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.

Ezekiel 36:26-27  A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

1 Peter 1:22-23  Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently: Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.

Whosoever will

love oneExodus 34:8-10  And Moses made haste, and bowed his head toward the earth, and worshipped. And he said, If now I have found grace in thy sight, O Lord, let my Lord, I pray thee, go among us; for it is a stiffnecked people; and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for thine inheritance. And he said, Behold, I make a covenant: before all thy people I will do marvels, such as have not been done in all the earth (the church,) nor in any nation: and all the people among which thou art shall see the work of the LORD: for it is a terrible (awesome) thing that I will do with thee.

For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Revelation 22:16-17  I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.

Bless the Lord

 

praise

Leviticus 1:1-3 And the LORD called unto Moses, and spake unto him out of the tabernacle of the congregation, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, If any man of you bring an offering unto the LORD, ye shall bring your offering of the cattle, even of the herd, and of the flock. If his offering be a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blemish: he shall offer it of his own voluntary will at the door of the tabernacle of the congregation before the LORD.

Psalm 100:4-5 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name. For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

Genesis 49:22-2 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall: The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him: But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:)

Amen.

Abide in the vine

grapes

John 15:1-4

I am the true vine,

And my Father is the husbandman.

Every branch in me that beareth not fruit

He taketh away:

And every branch that beareth fruit,

He purgeth it,

That it may bring forth more fruit.

Now ye are clean through the word

Which I have spoken unto you.

Abide in me, and I in you.

As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself,

Except it abide in the vine;

No more can ye,

Except ye abide in me.

John 15:8

Herein is my Father glorified,

That ye bear much fruit;

So shall ye be my disciples.

Colossians 3:12-17

Put on therefore, as the elect of God,

Holy and beloved,

Bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind,

Meekness, longsuffering;

Forbearing one another,

And forgiving one another,

If any man have a quarrel against any:

Even as Christ forgave you, so also do ye.

And above all these things put on charity,

Which is the bond of perfectness.

And let the peace of God rule in your hearts,

To the which also ye are called in one body;

And be ye thankful.

Let the word of Christ

Dwell in you richly in all wisdom;

Teaching and admonishing one another

In psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,

Singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

And whatsoever ye do in word or deed,

Do all in the name of the Lord Jesus,

Giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

1 Peter 4:11 KJV

If any man speak,

Let him speak as the oracles of God;

If any man minister,

Let him do it as of the ability which God giveth:

That God in all things may be glorified

Through Jesus Christ,

To whom be praise and dominion

For ever and ever.

Amen.
