Becoming Weak in Order that God’s Power and Glory be Manifested in Us

The Lord Is With Us

The Son gave Himself up for us two thousand years ago so that we might receive and live eternal Life: that we might know God so that the love the Father has for the Son may be in us, and that Christ Himself may live in us (see John 17:3, 26).

      I am so blessed He showed you a way to comment, Deb! I missed you!
      Many people prefer to follow and, in the interest of time, miss out on the Lord’s wisdom of prior articles. It is my understanding that this is why He is having me reblog older Words of Encouragement…
