I have a new hobby now; yesss…growing grapes. It is fun and it will be a yum yum when its harvest time. I have just found out that there are new releases from University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture called “Faith, Hope, Joy and Gratitude“. WOW! I love them! They are awesome, aren’t they?! But where’s Love? It would not be complete without it for sure 🙂 According to 1Cor 13:13 as I quoted here: “And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love“. You see; LOVE is the greatest!
This also reminds me of His blessing that I enjoyed this morning thru’ one of my sisters in Christ;
We in the local churches today must be warned of the possibility of losing our first love for the Lord. We may work and labor for the Lord and we may be pure doctrinally and correct scripturally, yet not have the first love for the Lord. Once we have fallen from our first love, our degradation has begun. We may remain the same in everything else – in work, in labor, and in other things – but we are degraded because we have left our first love. (Witness Lee, Conclusion of the New Testament, Living Stream Ministry, Anaheim, California, U.S.A. 1998, p.2400) http://www.lsm.org
O how we need Him to recover our first love to Him…to teach us how to love Him more and more…deeper and deeper! Amen!
