Imitating Christ's Humility
Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
God is love. Any time you feel love, it's God because God is love. He who doesn't love doesn't know God. We know and have believed the love which God has for us. God is love, and he who remains in love remains in God, and God remains in him. I John 4:8 & 16.
The greatest love is divine love, love of God. You can love God as a mother, a father, a protector, a formless presence, a child, the divinity in everybody's heart, a feeling in your heart.
Blessed is He who is Forgiven
Faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. This is what the ancients were commended for. By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
Consequently faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard comes through the preached word of Christ.
By faith Noah, when he was warned about things not yet seen, with reverent regard constructed an ark for the deliverance of his family. Through faith he condemned the world and became an heir of the righteousness that comes by faith.
