John 13:31-35 The greatest outward expression we can do as Christian’s is to display the inward change of the heart.   The heart will always be the visible mark for others to see, who we truly belong too. See, what comes from the heart will always express the true intent of a person's motives, whether by their words or their actions!  It has been said by many “At no other time in the history of Christianity did love so characterize the entire church as it did in the first three centuries. And Roman society took note. Tertullian reported that the Romans would exclaim, “See how they love one another!”  Justin Martyr sketched Christian love this way: “We who used to value the acquisition of wealth and possessions more than anything else now bring what we have into a common fund and share it with anyone who needs it. We used to hate and destroy one another and refused to associate with people of another race or country. Now, because of Christ, we live together with such peop


Eph 6:4 I came across yet another sad story of many this past week, that say about the same thing when it came to the question…….

Then trying to probe the offender's conscience, the judge said, "As you are about to be sentenced and as you think of your wonderful dad, what do you remember most clearly about him?" There was a pause. Then the judge received an answer he had not expected. "I remember when I went to him for advice. He looked up at me from


John 13:18-35 Night time usually brings out the worst kinds of people……I remember as a kid growing up, watching my dad as he strap his police gun belt around his waist to go out   for another long night to serve and protect!  I remember he used to say to me before heading out in his police car “it’s a dark and hot out there which means, all the wacko’s will be out tonight, so stay indoors for mother”.  Now my dad knew, and we know, that isn't always true or the case when its hot and dark out…...but we can all agree, their usually a greater evil that presents itself more freely in the darkness. But think about this for a moment as it pertains to the scriptures.  DARKNESS in its proper context usually represents unbelief, sin, and evil according to the bible.  Which usually is associated with death, ignorance, and those things which are sinful and bad; it describes hard or stiff-necked hearts which is an accusing, justifying, unchildlike attitude when being corrected from
