Love One Another

Isaiah Roebuck

“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” John 13:34-45

Love one another.

“By your love everyone will know that you are my disciples.” Loving people is how the world knows we are followers of Christ. Loving one another is a command of the Lord and through obeying this, we allow the world to see not only our love but the love of God.

“Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” 1 John 4:8

The Art of Appreciation

Musings by Ellen

(Phillippians 1:3-4)  

I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy.

The month of October has evolved into Pastors’ Appreciation Month here in South Africa, and around the world. In fact, it has fast become a tradition to celebrate the second Sunday of this month with special services or programmes honouring clergy and ministers at local churches.

Today, we had the joy of celebrating with my dad at his local home-church. A minister for many years, and now semi-retired he shares alongside another seasoned minister to tend to a loyal and local flock. I like to joke and say that my brothers and I kept my dad in business, but those are tales for another journal, a diary maybe, preferably with a closed lock and double pin-codes. Anyway, I detract.

Step Ahead with the Spirit

Step Ahead

Step ahead with the Spirit
Now and into the future
To discover blessings
That make the path smoother.

Walk by faith this day
Within a lifestyle
That serves through love
And shares with a smile.

Growing fruits of the Spirit
As a donation
That provides resources
Of inspiration.

Building up the Lord’s House,
Delivering the Good News,
With power to take on
Whatever you choose.

Even in weak moments,
There is a great strength inside
Blessing you for a great future
As the Lord provides.
