    a list of single fruits...

    The idea of this thread is to make a list of qualities we might hope to see in children of God. Each post should only identify one 'quality' so that others are free to agree/disagree/etc with that specific quality. Qualities can be defined by single words or sentences. (btw, try not to...

    The one commandment is to 'have' Love

    Love is the desire for all others to have joy. And the only true joy is to 'have' Love. There is only one commandment. It is to come to know for ourselves the Joy of 'having' Love, by the continual work of belief in Jesus. If we do not love our neighbor then we do not 'have' love. The two who...

    My first blog

    Last night at work I was trying to decide what 'ultimate' faith might be like. Remember where Jesus says "such great faith I have not seen..." But imagine the centurion had faith to know that God could see his servant all the time. And his servant could not be sick unless God had allowed him to...

    Add a 'moved' icon/picture/emote.

    I'm new to this kind of web-site, so this might just be me not 'getting it', but several times the emotion I feel is that I'm 'moved' by a post. I find it a very positive emotion to experience and would like to be able to convey it with an emote. Its an emotion that makes me want to be the best...

    Finding faith through nature

    "God called the light “day,” and the darkness He called “night.” And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day. " - (Genesis 1:5) I used to think it was a bit strange that the evening came before the morning in a day. But then I noticed how the evening was dark until the moon...

    How I currently try to do the work of belief in Jesus.

    How I do the work of believing in Jesus. As soon as I wake up and before my mind begins to wander I read a chapter of the New Testament and then an Alexander Maclaren sermon on it (free on BibleHub), which I recommend everyone try. I do a delivery-driver job which allows me to pay my bills...

    Can you help me with a few questions I have?

    Does the flesh profit nothing? Is that which is much esteemed by men an abomination to God? Have those who are Christ's crucified their flesh with its passions and desires? Is all that is in the world not of the Father but of the world? Does friendship with the world make you an enemy of...

    Is it OK to eat cake when other people on the planet are starving?

    "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you..." (Matthew 7:12) I think if my children were starving I would like other people to go without their cake and instead put the money towards bread for my children. What do you think?

    A way of escape?

    No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, He will also provide an escape, so that you can stand up under it. I am a driver. On New year's eve, when I got to work they told...

    The work of God is to believe in the One He has sent. ( John 6:29)

    That is the price that has been set if you really want to "know God". (John 17:3) The work is straight-forward but very hard to accomplish in this world. So I encourage you to cut out from your life as many worldly things as you can at this stage to make some room. And then to do all that you...

    My Testimony, so far...

    Hi everyone. I grew up in a non-religious family. My elder brother Peter spent a year in prison which I think is where he heard about God. Several years later he came to a point in his life where he just needed God to be real and in his life. So he cried out to God from the bottom of his heart...
