Beautiful spirea is starting to bloom. I spent some quiet time on the porch with my #coffee and #Bible for some much needed focus and intentional discipline. #☕️ I read through the book of I John and again am surprised at the number of times John mentions LOVE. I #love the #confidence that John has in Christ and how reassuring it is for us. —— I John 5:1-5 Everyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ has been born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves whoever has been born of him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and obey his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome. For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world–our faith. Who is it overcomes the world except the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God? ———- #IJohn #readyourbible God's promises are here for us to read, to reassure us, and to reboot our confidence in him. Are you finding yourself immersed in the Bible?
