But God shows his love for us
in that while we were still sinners,
Christ died for us.
Looking for praise, doing things to receive accolades, dressing to please, spending too much for decorations so we can be noticed, sacrificing family time for a friend, overworking for the boss' attention, reading the Bible through at the expense of missing your child's bedtime...and the list goes on. These things are not bad but they are some of the things that people do to fill the God Hole in their hearts...the one that needs total acceptance. The world can't give it to us and nothing we can do will help us achieve it except to...
Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved...Acts 16:31
We just need to listen to His Word and do what He says... love him and love others. Everything else will fall into place--
and no one said it was easy.
