    i did this for hoomework... ot was worth it
  • I, even I, am that Michael Isaac Dale:
    Hear again O man, for as long as this heaven and earth remain, so will these wicked pervert the right ways of the LORD JESUS. And, for as long as Christ is in his flesh, so shall ye be in your flesh. And the woman whom GOD favours shall sleep until you repent of your own sins, giving place to faith. Thus, There is no darkness, nor shadow of death, where the workers of iniquity may hide themselves.

    "...above all these things put on charity,3:14" "Charity...beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. Charity never faileth." 1Cor.13:4-8; "3:14 ...the bond of perfectness", capsules the essence of The Godhead and the Word; God is Love. Love sent His Son to Calvary that we may have eternal life, because of this Love came the Comforter--the Spirit of Truth.

    God gave me Col. 3 a few years back. While walking and talking to God He brought up Col. 3. I broke down crying because I was very depressed and needed strengeth and encouragement. Because of God's grace, love and mercy I'm still here. I think, meditate and apply Col. 3 nearly every day since that time. All because of the power of the Holy Spirit am I able to live the Christian life. Praise God ..
