The Love of God in Our Heart

The Spirit of the love of God—God’s Holy Spirit—lives within the heart of the believer. But do we live in a way that’s appropriate for His Spirit to live in?

Living in Fellowship with God

It has always been God’s desire to have a relationship in fellowship with His people. The work we do for Him has its own value, but our companionship and relationship we enjoy with Him is more important. There is no way to make our standing with God better because it is already at its best…
