By love!

When I was a girl I was the reluctant one when it came to chores. As time went on I learnt to do them without a fuss but inside I was still grumbling. Now I look back and wonder how I missed the beauty that’s to be found in serving (although there’s still chores IContinue reading “By love!”

Grace upon grace…

Grace upon grace upon grace! “And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.” Who are all we? Each true believer. So what is this fulness of Christ?

In John’s introduction to his first letter he says that he writes these things ‘that your joy may be full’ What things? The things that he has handled, heard and seen of Jesus, the things that John writes about in the coming verses.

Together…

For years I’ve been fascinated with the speed that my body works together to react to situations. I especially notice it if I drop something. Not only does a message go from my hands to my brain to tell my brain what’s happened and back to my hands in a split second with a messageContinue reading “Together…”
