Jesus came here to destroy every evil work of the enemy that we may be free from death and hell. Jesus also came that we may have life and have it abundantly. God is not a withholder but a giver, and as he is, so are we. We have the ability of God in us,

It was all confusing for Peter and the rest of the disciples when Jesus was taken to be tried and crucified. Despite the fact that he had earlier informed them of the trials to come before the crucifixion, the disciples all struggled with their devotion to the Son of God they knew, who wrought miracles

When God revealed what He wanted us to concentrate on in 2018, the words ALL IN were not words at all.

Love as described in the Bible is quite different from the love espoused by the world. Biblical love is selfless and unconditional, whereas the world’s love is characterized by selfishness.

We are in these scriptures pretty deep now. And it’s about to go deeper. The next two parts of what Jesus sums up for us to do are the most challenging.

Strength means more than just your physical ability; it also means, “ability, might, power, and strength – literally and figuratively.”

Love the Lord your God with all your mind. Mind … this means the exercise of your mind. Your understanding. So God is specifically saying He would like you to love Him with every exercise of your mind.

Devotion means affectionate, loving, tender-hearted kindness, all that and more in one word. God is devoted to us as a loving father, but how can we be devoted to him if we do not have a proper understanding of who he is? He made us like him, which means we are a replica of him
