The Word on words and love

After a few years of trying to maintain several blogs with regular posts on Blogger, I saw a need to simplify! So a new umbrella blog has been set up for The Word Center on WordPress.

Lord willing, the blog will include Bible prayers, Bible poetry, devotionals, articles on writing, biblical principles of Christian healing, and reviews of new editions or translations of the Bible.

If you're a worker of words or a minister of The Word, I pray you will Follow the blog and find what you need. If not, please leave a question, helpful comment, or suggestion for future posts.

Thanks and blessings.

How faith in Christ leads us to love


Because of our faith
in the Lord Jesus Christ,
we have been made right with God!

With God, we have peace.

Because of our faith
in the Lord Jesus Christ,
we have access
to the Grace of God,
and we rejoice in the hope
of God’s Glory.

We can even rejoice
in our troubles,
knowing that trials help us
to endure,
and endurance develops
our character,
and character strengthens
our hope,
and hope will not lead
to disappointment

because the Love of God
pours into our hearts,
through the Holy Spirit,
Who has been given to us
and keeps filling us
with God’s Love.

Thank God for love

As the Apostle Paul wrote to Philemon, so he writes to us:

Grace to you and peace
from God our Father
and the Lord Jesus Christ.

As I mention you in my prayers,
I thank God for your love
toward all the people of God
and for your faith toward the Lord Jesus.

I pray your sharing of faith
may become effective
as you know every good
given for the glory of Christ.

For I have received great joy
and encouragement from your love,
and the hearts of the saints
have been refreshed through you.
