ONE GREAT THEME!
This morning, I took a few moments to read Chapter 54 in the Acts of the Apostles. This Chapter Titled, “A Faithful Witness” speaks of the Love of Jesus which needs to permeate out lives. Ellen White described how the Apostle John, under the patience tutelage of Jesus, was transformed by Love, to the depth that Mrs. White comments he (John) appeared to “write with a pen dipped in love.”
After contemplating the reading for this morning, I read back through the Pastor’s Messages that have been written this year and noticed the over-arching theme of LOVE which has been communicated.
Today! This Week! For the rest of the year, I would like to encourage each of us to focus on the One Great Theme, which oozes out of scripture. LOVE!!!
John 3:16 – For God so LOVE….
1 John 4:9 – In this the love of God was manifested…
1 John 4:8 – God is Love
Friends, God loves you!! Take time to read the Epistles of John and allow God’s Great Love to permeate your life.
Ellen White writes on page 551 of Acts of the Apostles, “Supreme love for God and unselfish love for one another – this is the best gift that our heavenly Father can bestow.”
Let each of us get a jump on the Christmas Season by unwrapping this incredible gift and then passing it on to EVERYONE!!
