Living real love

1 John 3:16

How do we know what real love is?
Jesus!

He exchanged – surrendered –
His life on earth
for our lives eternal.

Now let’s give Him our lives

(give up our wants and wishes)
to provide for the needs
of our brothers and sisters
in Christ.

Mary's newest book PRAISE! with contemporary psalms and free verse poems has been released by Cladach Publishing in time to order for Easter.

Putting our loving actions where our mouth is

Dearest Children of God,
let’s not just talk about love
or say we love one another.
Let us demonstrate love
by actions
that show we truly care.


1 John 3:18 has been prayer-a-phrased in the lines above by Mary Harwell Sayler, © 2017, who used scriptures from many translations on Bible Gateway.

See the love!


1 John 3:1-2


Oh, look!

See what love the Father
has poured onto us,
the children of God!

That’s who we are!

And we know Whose we are –
whether other people
know it yet or not.

Oh, Beloved,
we are God’s children –
now!

What we will be
has not yet been revealed,
but we do know this:

When Christ comes,
we shall be like Him
for we shall see Him
as He is.
