If you love others (not merely through lip service), he dwells within you.

Those who are authentic worshipers, do the word of God in lip service and in the light of life.

What I have told you in the dark proclaim in the light.

Anyone who seeks righteousness and kindness will find life ,Truth and glory.

Seek righteousness and find the kingdom of God!!

God is like the polite visitor knocking at the front door...even if the door is unlocked he will not enter without an invitation.

I encourage all reading here to extend that invitation

He who sees the light, responds to it; not just in word.
Turn on the switch, and the darkness will flee.

Otherwise, you are just another voice in the night.

"The one who is sent by God, He speaks the words of God."

"Walk in the light while you have it or darkness will come over you.."

The only words you appear to speak, come from other men.
Not those of your own, or that which comes - from within!

Scripture Of The Day: “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” - James 4:8

Many of us have been blessed with close friends. Imagine if we never spent time with them but instead just thought and talked about how wonderful these special people are. Wouldn’t such behavior be foolish? Yet some Christians do just that.
Despite accumulating vast knowledge about God and the Bible, they miss out on rich fellowship with the Father, the best friend anyone could ever have.
It is possible to fill our lives with spiritual information and activities—all of which are good—but fail to develop a close relationship with the Lord. Take a quick inventory to see if this might be true of you: Do you attend church only out of a sense of duty? Do you pray with lofty or repetitive words rather than speaking to God from the heart? Do you serve solely out of obligation?

In Scripture, we read about many people whose personal encounter with the Lord was energizing and life-changing. Abraham, Gideon, Moses, and Paul were just a few who spoke with Him one-on-one (Genesis 7:4; Judges 6:12, 14; Exodus 3:2; Acts 9:3-6). We probably don’t expect dramatic “burning bush” experiences today, yet all believers should still have precious, intimate times with God.

Whenever we open His Word and invite the Holy Spirit to illuminate its meaning, we can hear directly from our heavenly Father.
The Bible tells us, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you” (James 4:8). Walking closely with the Lord takes commitment and time.

Amen


To Show His love, Jesus died for me;
to show my love, I must live for Him !
How true, God speaks to us whenever the Bible is read.

Exactly, God closed up the way to communicate to man when he appointed men to write the bible
