Abiding Grace

~Love is the most abiding grace.~



This will stay with us when other graces take their farewell. In heaven we shall need no repentance, because we shall have no sin. In heaven we shall not need patience, because there will be no affliction.



In heaven we shall need no faith because faith looks at things unseen (Heb. 11: 1).



But then we shall see God face to face; and where there is vision, there is no need of faith.



But when the other graces are out of date, love continues; and in this sense the apostle says that love is greater than faith, because it abides the longest." Charity never faileth" (1 Cor. 13:8). By Thomas Watson

Lord, teach me what it means to love. Thank you for loving me before I ever knew you. Your love brings healing and hope. Your love never ends. Because of your great love I will praise you with my whole heart. Your mercy and grace sustains me. I glorify your name. Amen

Sweet blessings Susan...AMEN! Wonderful prayer and what a beautiful reminder of LOVE in HIS WORD! I have a lot to live up to when I look at 1 Corinthians. I love what you shared from Thomas Watson...In Heaven we shall need...no more and LOVE continues. No wonder we long to return HOME! Thank you so much for your double blessing and taking the extra time to read so much & bless me with your encouraging words. Trust me I have shared this message and know that it brings more healing as you do & His grace abides. Your wisdom and love bless me. Thanks!

This was my Daily Bible Verse today. Still here praying!
Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?

This is what rings through my mind MANY times..Love never fails. Love believes the best. I say it over and over within my spirit, letting it grow stronger within me, accepting Christ's love to truly flourish so that I am than able to love with a never failing love, and believing the best...((hugs))

Continuing to lift up prayers!
Psalms 94:17-19 Unless the LORD had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence. When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O LORD, held me up. In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.

Lynn said...

Know that I'm still here praying!
Psalms 40:1-4 I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry. He brought me up also out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings. And he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God: many shall see it, and fear, and shall trust in the LORD. Blessed is that man that maketh the LORD his trust, and respecteth not the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies.

Lynn said...

Stopping by to let you know I'm still praying!
Psalms 55:16-18 As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me. Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice. He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me.
