What God Thinks of Me

Col. 3:12 “…as the elect of God, holy and beloved…” Scripture provides many instructions on how to live in harmony with others.

Undeserving Love

Rom. 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. What causes God’s love to stand out is the objects of that love. As Paul states, “…yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die” (Rom. 5:7), one could see a sacrifice …
