The Father’s love for you!

“I have loved you, just as the Father has loved Me; abide in My love.” John 15:9 I was reading through John 15 – what is usually called the upper room discourse – spoken to the disciples by Jesus just before He was betrayed and crucified. When I read verse 9 I just stopped for… Continue reading The Father’s love for you!

Peace in the midst of our storms

With everything going on in the world today once only has to listen to a few minutes of any newscast and they will find fear entering their hearts.
