1John 2:15-17 If we as Christians do not change from the inside-out—we are tempted to find external methods to satisfy our need to feel that we are different from those outside the faith. Boundary-Marker Spirituality is highly visible, relatively superficial practices that allow people to distinguish who is an insider and who is an outsider of the Family of God. Even…
1John 2:12-14 Maturity isn’t age, appearance, activity, achievements, or academics. Maturity is becoming more and more like Christ in character and conduct
1John 2:7-11 Some people are easier to love than others. The gospel frees you to love people who hate you without needing love from then in return. All the love you need you have in Christ. It is the love you have been looking for your whole life!
1 John 2:1-6 All other religions send ADVISORS to tell us what we must DO to be right with God. Christianity sends an ADVOCATE to tell us what He has DONE to make us right with God.
1John 1:5-10 To Walk in the Light is a condition to maintain intimacy with God not to attain intimacy with God. Intimacy with God is a blood bought gift from God but to maintain and grow that intimacy with God you need to Walk in the Light.

Normal Christianity is love philanthropy—receiving so much love from God that you recklessly give it away without expecting anything in return.
Malachi 2:10-17 As the marriage goes so goes the family & as the family goes so goes society. The deterioration of our society is due to the delinquency of our children due to the disfunction of the family due to the high divorce rate. The Bible says that marriage is to be a lifelong monogamous relationship between a man & woman who are Christians
Malachi 2:10-17 Why does the topic of marriage show up so early in the book of Genesis? Because as the marriage goes so goes the family and as the family goes so goes society. Satan’s assault on the institution of marriage shouldn’t surprise us. The Bible says that marriage is to be a lifelong monogamous relationship between a man and a woman who are Christians.
Malachi 2:1-9 The God of the Galaxies invites us into a relationship with Him that involves a true dialogue. A mutual giving and receiving of love and truth.
