  • A disciple
    Jedonai, You dare to say that we aren't able to keep God's commands? What God commands us to do; to love Him with all our being, and our neighbor as our selves; love out of a pure heart and a good conscience, and faith without hypocrisy; to not commit murder, adultery, lying, stealing, or coveting anything that is our neighbor's, and honoring our parents; Jesus said, "This do, and you shall live."

    steve:what is the WILL of GOD?
    This is the will of God. Luke 10:27. And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. Just ponder over it continually in your heart and the Holy Spirit will guide you.

    disciple: No one can keep the commandments! They show us how sinful we are, in need of a perfect Sacrifice. Hebrews 10:12/ Without The Blood of The Lamb,The Son of God,there is no Salvation. The Father will call: John 6:44/Forgiving 1John 1:9/Baptized with the Holy Ghost:Matthew 3:11/You will be made new 2Corinthians5:17 you will know impossible not to know! We're Holy before Him because of JESUS

    Eliz. barrenness wasn't an unfortunate circumstance; it was God's plan to bring forth John at that time. Why John 'n Jesus were born 6 mos. apart I don't know; God has His planned timing. I concur that Zach. 'n Eliz. were sad about no children, but they stayed with the Lord in spite of trials. And were they BLESSED!!! God is so GOOD - all the time - if we will just trust Him, with patience.
