    Our father have blessed us with his holy spirit. We should learn to give back to him and also thank him for what he have done for us. We all have sinned and that is why he loved us so early because he died for us all.

    1 Corinthians Chapter 1. I have been reading the Bible everyday without a miss for 1 straight year. And So far what I have come up with this. It doesn't matter what other people think about you! It's what God thinks about you! If we live by Gods laws then we are On God's good side. Gods has rules and laws they are all in His book!
  • MockingBird
    Truly the cross of Jesus Christ is foolishness to the one that is not of the household of Faith . They think it is totally absurb to believe in such a thing as a man to die for the sins of the world. Only because they have not believed in the message of the cross that was presented to them. The cross to me is my life giving force : without the cross of Jesus Christ I would be undone and on my way to Hell . Truly the cross is the power of God unto salvation to me !!!! Praise God for His Amazing Grace !!!
