Bible verse of the day

Posted by danielle at 10:03 PM
So, I know, my blogging is out of control lately. But, I very rarely have enough thoughts to compose a normal blog...so I will be posting "things" of the day. Bible verses, quotes, this day in history, random pictures, random thoughts...just whatever I come across while I'm creeping the internet that day! So, I'm sorry if you get 3 blogs from me all in one day that all add up to RANDOMNESS! That's just me! This is who I am! And maybe one Bible verse or quote will make someone's day better!

BVOTD: (Bible Verse of the day)

For over a week, John has reminded us again and again. We must love our brothers and sisters in Christ. This reminder, however, is the clincher. If we love God, then we must love his children and our brothers and sisters in Christ. Notice that the word isn't "should" or "will try" or "want to." No, we must. The Bible is careful not to put many "must do" or "thou shalt" commands in Scripture. But God's point is clear. Love of each other is not optional, negotiable, or even something to be delayed. God sent Jesus to die for the sins of all of God's children. How can we not love those for whom Christ gave so much? As Paul will say to the Corinthians, "God's love compels us!" We MUST love. ---Phil Ware
I wrote this prayer down so that I can remind myself to use it every day!
Sovereign LORD, forgive my sometimes selective practice of loving your children. I ask you now to bless, to nourish, and to sustain my brothers and sisters in Christ. I want to pray in particular for several of your children who have great trials and burdens... (please list some of those you know who need God's help). In addition, dear Father, please use me to minister to them in tangible ways. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

We have a townhouse, so the kitchen and living room are downstairs and the bedroom and bathroom are upstairs. Our current plan is to stay here until next January. Then we want to buy a house. We'll see if we have the money by then. Can I have your address? I want to send you a gift for Alexia.
