    A Revelation of Love

    God is Love. 1 John 4:8,16 Love believes all things. 1 Cor. 13:7 The Cross is the ultimate proof that God is love. If you have had the experience of being born again and filled with the Holy Spirit, one of the first things He does is convince us that the reason Jesus went to […]
