What Matters Most to God in a Disciple (Part 11)

“Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” (1 Corinthians 13:7–8a NIV). Love doesn’t quit!  As He continues speaking to us through the pen of Paul, God identifies four ways that distinguish a maturing disciple who reflects His enduring agape love. All four are related to our relationships—which is not surprising, since life is…See More

What Matters Most to God in a Disciple (Part 10)

“Love . . . does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail” (1 Corinthians 13:6 AMPC).Throughout this series on 1 Corinthians 13, we see clearly that what matters most to God in a disciple is that person’s agape love.  Verse six identifies another way in which that love shows. A disciple can be trusted to do what is right and say what is true. That is, this person has trustworthy integrity.…See More

What Matters Most to God in a Disciple? (Part 7)

“Love . . . is not easily angered . . .” (1 Corinthians 13:5b NIV).Potentially the most impulsive—and most destructive—weakness in your life and mine is poorly controlled anger. We are inundated with angry incidents that—if we are not careful—can lead us to give ourselves “permission” to imitate those lapses of control: fiery dialogue in politics, fist fights at supposed sports events, rage on the roads, violent actions and reactions in media “entertainment,” and vicious words at home.  God’s…See More

What Matters Most to God in a Disciple? (Part 6)

“Love . . . does not boast; it is not arrogant. . . .” (1 Corinthians 13:4b ESV). As we continue our journey of discovery into what matters most to God, there is a fourth quality that God seeks in the hearts of His followers. It is a quality that we all wish other people would show toward us, but that we sometimes only grudgingly show toward others: humility.   …See More

What Matters Most to God in a Disciple? (Part 1)

The most fulfilling journey in life is the path of a person who has an intimate relationship with God, and who faithfully follows Him. Is it the easiest path to walk? No. Is it the inside track to popularity? No. But is it the inside track to joy? Yes, for eternal reasons. Step one, for any person who yearns to experience this journey (i.e., a “disciple”), starts at the cross of Jesus Christ (John 3:16). It includes genuine conviction, humble repentance, and new loyalty. It is more than…See More

Good Day,

 How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through
your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have
something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to
express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back
to me on:( mrs.awounyodoris@gmail.com) for the full
details.

Have a nice day

Thanks God bless.

Mrs Awounyo.
