Here is something I read on Facebook.
When Jesus rejoiced
by Joshua Agan
A couple of weeks ago, I learned something interesting in Scripture.
Did you know that Scripture says only one time that “Jesus rejoiced” about something?
Only once do we ever read that.
It caught my attention, and I wanted to know what caused Jesus to rejoice. Read the rest of this entry
The Bible says a lot about love. We are told that God is love. He has demonstrated his love by sending his son, Jesus Christ, to die as a sacrifice for our sins so we can be forgiven.
God requires that we love others as well. Jesus said that the two greatest commands are to love God with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind, and to love our neighbor as ourselves. We are even commanded to love our enemies.
But this doesn’t necessarily mean that all love is good. Jesus has told us that loving him should have priority over all other loves.
Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me.
Mr. Smith owned several acres of land just outside of a city on the coast. He dreamed of living a life of luxury and seeing the world but had no hope of fulfilling those dreams because he was stuck in a job that paid him barely enough to live on.
