An assignment to grow in love

October26

I got this assignment from my friend Jim, who puts out a great devotional email every Monday morning.

Up for a challenge?  It was suggested we read the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Corinthian church, better known as the ‘Love Chapter,’ and take out the word LOVE and INSERT YOUR NAME.  After you do this (I dare you!), print this out as a reminder and let me know how you did.  Remember, perfection was reserved for Jesus and there is now therefore NO condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

1 Cor 13:  4 Love is patient, love is kind, and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, 5 does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, 6 does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8 Love never fails;

Sonia is patient,

Sonia  is kind.

Sonia  does not envy,

Sonia  does not boast,

Sonia  is not proud,

Sonia  is not rude.

Sonia  is not self-seeking.

Sonia  is not easily angered.

Sonia  keeps no record of wrongs.

Sonia  does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.

Sonia  always protects.

Sonia  always trusts.

Sonia  always hopes.

Sonia  always perseveres.

Sonia  never fails!!!!!!!

Who am I?

March12

My cousin Peggy gave me this excellent declaration:

I am patient and kind.

I am not jealous.

I do not brag.

I am not proud.

I am not rude.

I am not selfish.

I do not get upset with others.

I do not count up the wrongs that have been done.

I am not happy with evil…

I am happy with the truth.

I PATIENTLY ACCEPT ALL THINGS. (Had to emphasize that for me!)

I always trust.

I always hope.

I always remain strong.

I never end.

This is based on 1 Cor. 4-8a. This is who I want to be: love. Since God is love, I guess I need more God!

Best Way to Speed Read: Listen!

February13

Three weeks ago, I bought a cheap little iPod alarm clock with speakers. I mainly got it so I could listen to the Bible when I got ready in the morning.

Obviously, I must spend a lot of time in the bathroom doing my hair and make-up!

I’ve already listened to three books of the Bible: Romans, Acts, and Matthew. Crazy!!!

No matter how much I try to find time to read, my progress is usually about a half a chapter per month. Hurrah for audio and iPods!

We need to be stirred up by way of reminder

10/26/08 SLFC Sunday am 3rd service pastor Tom Duchelle

Kingdom – doing what you are supposed to do in your sphere

Beginning is salvation, launching off point
Enter the kingdom – must be born again
Born of water and of spirit – can see the kingdom

Adam and Eve fell from dominion, not heaven
The kingdom is a lifestyle
Learn how to walk in the kingdom

Matt 5,6,7
Teach you how to pray
Teach how to live
Not a religion, a life

Kingdom of God – disposition not location
John 4
Woman at the well, get a drink, drink never be thirsty, food you don’t know of

12 disciples didn’t bring anyone to Jesus, although they had been in town
Lady brought everyone out to Jesus, see this man who knew every thing about me

Kingdom is not about eating and drinking

By the spirit – not by the flesh
