In addition to providing uplifting music, K-LOVE has ten full-time pastors to give you Christian advice and as you walk through the challenges of life. The following are some common answers to questions that listeners have about marriage, faith, the Bible and a host of other topics. If you have a question for one of our pastors not listed below, feel free to contact us.
First, it’s important to make an honest assessment of your addiction. Admit that you have a problem, and don’t live in denial. Remember, your addiction does not define you. You are still a child of God, loved, and accepted. It’s important that as you embrace the road to freedom from bad habits, you see yourself correctly, just as God sees you. God calls you more than a conqueror. (Romans 8:37) This is your identity. Anytime you engage in a bad habit, you forget who you are and who’s you are. It depends on the power of God to set you free. Focus on loving Jesus with all your heart. True, lasting transformation takes place when we take the focus off of ourselves and focus on Christ. Now, you will fail sometimes, so make sure you give yourself grace. Run to God, not from him when you fail. Take it one day at a time. Don’t isolate yourself and make sure you establish a healthy support system that will hold you accountable.
The temptation to engage in pornography, is most likely to come when you haven’t spent much time with God, had enough rest, feel exhausted and overwhelmed, or are struggling to experience true intimacy in your life. Here are a few actions you can take to help you break free from the hold of pornography:
- Make An Honest Assessment Of Your Addiction: You have a problem and you cannot deny it, justify it, minimize it, or rationalize it.
- Take responsibility for immediate action. Stop feeding your addiction! Get rid of all pornographic materials and avoid places that would offer it.
- Begin a serious effort to build a godly life. Start with prayer. Confess your sins (I John 1:9; Psalm 51:10-12, Jeremiah 29:13). Give yourself to Christ (Romans 12:1). Renew your mind with God’s word (Romans 12:2). Learn to control your thought life (2 Corinthians 10:4-5; Philippians 4:8) and set up a network of accountability, holding yourself accountable to other, mature Christians who can encourage and monitor your behavior (James 5:16). And finally, remember that addictions are a result of what we believe. Choosing to believe that pornography will satisfy your deepest desire is a lie. When someone watches pornography, the message they are sending God is that “porn is more satisfying than God.” That is a lie. Pornography will not satisfy. We must remember that our ultimate satisfaction is in Jesus and him alone. Focus on loving Christ, and by the power of the Holy Spirit, your addiction will be broken.
Smoking is never directly mentioned in the Bible. We do find that there are principles that apply to smoking. The Bible commands us not to allow our bodies to become "mastered" by anything. "Everything is permissible for me -- but not everything is beneficial. Everything is permissible for me -- but I will not be mastered by anything" (1 Corinthians 6:12). Later in the same passage, we are told, "Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). Smoking is undoubtedly very bad for your health and is strongly addictive. So as believers, we are to be on guard and refuse to be mastered and enslaved by anything. One question that may be helpful to ask is, “Is this spiritually beneficial?” If it’s not, then I would encourage you to stay away. If it hinders our walk with Jesus, it’s not beneficial.
We face a lot of temptations today because three things work against us- the world, our sinful nature and Satan. Satan wants to undermine our faith by using different deceptive schemes to entice us to fall and sin, sowing within us the seeds of doubt, unbelief and rebellion. Two of his powerful temptations were those of Adam and Eve in the Garden, in which he achieved his purpose, and of Jesus in the wilderness, which he failed. We see his favorite tool is to tamper with the Word of God. The Bible calls Christians to stand firm in the faith and to watch out for temptations. God promises to help us resist temptation and has given us everything we need to live victorious (2 Peter 1:3-4). His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his glory and goodness.
The reason most Christians go to church on Sundays is that that’s when the New Testament Christians met for Church, and they were celebrating the day Jesus rose from the grave. The Sabbath Day is Saturday and many people use the ‘principle of the Sabbath’ as a day of rest since even God rested (Genesis 2:7). We also see in the Book of Acts, “Now on the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul, ready to depart the next day, spoke to them and continued his message until midnight.” (Acts 20:7) The disciples coming together to break bread was fellowship and remembrance of the Lord Jesus Christ. It was worship or Church. We also know that from history, the Church met on Sundays, starting in the first century. Whatever day we choose to attend church, our lives should be a 24/7 expression of worshipping God.
Depression, Anxiety, Suicide
One writer said, “Life is 10 % what happens to you, and 90 % how you respond.” Here are three ways to help us overcome stress. First, consider your responses. Sometimes, our response to a situation is worse than the circumstances we are in themselves. Accelerated heart rate at an interview, speaking engagement, or some stressful situation engenders worry. Try to retrain how you think about how you react. Second, God promises you can overcome every temptation. A great promise is that “No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man, and with the temptation, He will provide the way of escape so you may be able to endure it.” (I Cor. 10:13) Sometimes, God provides an escape hatch and other times He empowers us to go through the hard situation. Third, we can give our stress to God. An amazing promise is when Peter writes, “Casting all your cares upon Him because He cares for you” (1 Peter 5:7). God wants to carry our cares. A key to dealing with stress is with Jesus Christ, and by believing that He can help you. Finally, we can seek His peace by filling our minds with His Word and lifting all things to Him in prayer. Jesus loves us and gives us some verses to help us conquer stress and enjoy life. (Matthew 6:25; Mark 4:19; John 14:1; Proverbs 3:5–6; Psalm 34:4; Philippians 4:6–7)
I think it's safe to say that everyone will experience anxiety at varying degrees in their lives. Anxiety is a natural response to real or perceived danger. Some anxiety can be healthy. For example, when we are confronted with a snarling dog, anxiety makes our senses more alert, our heart beat faster, and our adrenaline surge to get ourselves out of a dangerous situation. For many people, though, their "anxiety button" gets pushed in non-life threatening situations daily because we don’t know God well enough. When that happens, we need to take control of those intrusive thoughts (2 Cor. 10:5). Instead of listening to ourselves, we need to speak the truth of scripture to our situation. Romans 10:17 tells us that faith comes from hearing the Word of God. When faith in our loving, sovereign, powerful God increases, we build trust and take care of the situations that worry us (Phil. 4:6-7). We can also cast all our cares upon God because He cares for us. Even when we are a nervous wreck. (I Peter 5:7) If you find the voice of anxiety still interfering with your life, it may be time to seek out a good Christian counselor who can help you learn steps to peace.
Self-acceptance is a common challenge for everyone at times. Here are a few thoughts to consider. First, Jesus Christ loves you and made you. You are fearfully and wonderfully made and out of the 7 billion people in the world, there is no one like you! (Psalm 139:13-14) Second, it is helpful to be more concerned about how you can value others' interests and not merely your own. (Phil. 2:3-4) It is amazing how our problems shrink and our sense of self-worth rises when we are more concerned about other’s interests and not only our own. Third, the good news is you ‘are not good enough,’ but you are still qualified for His grace. Jesus loves us and lived life and died the death that only He could achieve. Realizing God loves me when I was at my worst (Romans 5:8) proves He loves me since we are now His friend. Finally, recognize your true value. There is a difference between a big ego and understanding how much God loves you. Begin new thought patterns and replace negative thoughts by reminding yourself how much God cares about you.
Finances and Jobs
Taxes can be a hot topic. The Pharisees tried to text Jesus about this in Matthew 22:17-21: “ ‘Now tell us what you think about this: Is it right to pay taxes to Caesar or not?’ But Jesus knew their evil motives. ‘You hypocrites!’ he said. ‘Why are you trying to trap me? Here, show me the coin used for the tax.’ When they handed him a Roman coin, he asked, ‘Whose picture and title are stamped on it?’ ‘Caesar’s,’ they replied. ‘Well, then,’ he said, ‘give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and give to God what belongs to God.’ The government is God's servant, and we are to give what is owed to them. (Rom. 13:6-7) We are to pay our taxes, even if the evilest Roman emperor in history Nero, was the head of the government. When we do, we exercise the muscles of honor to God and our authorities and welcome Him to keep showing up as our Provider.
Losing our job can make us feel insecure, stressed and even depressed. Here are a few ways to keep your fears from taking over and practical things you can do:
- Focus on your strengths. God has made you unique and He has good works for you to do (Ephesians 2:10). Find out what you enjoy doing for Him and He will guide you.
- Build up your support system through church groups, and employment counseling or other resources. God needs nothing but networking affords God numerous ways to honor your labor to provide employment for you.
- Make finding a job a full-time job. One person said, “You have a job, spend 40 hours a week looking for a job.” Work on spending forty hours a week making resumes and doing interviews. It pays off.
- Serve others so you keep a healthy perspective on your problems.
- Don’t waste your trial. In due time, God will use your pain and give you humble wisdom and compassion for others in the future.
"Jesus is coming on May 21st!" said one flier. Campaigns commenting on the end of the world can be discouraging. Here are 3 ways we can educate ourselves and avoid needless panic or confusion:
- God is the only one who knows when the end and Jesus will come. Jesus told His disciples on the day He ascended: "The Father alone has the authority to set those dates and times, and they are not for you to know" (Acts 1:8). Our God and Father alone knows and He loves us so we can trust Him.
- Jesus is coming soon. Since Jesus is coming soon, we should live loving lives (2 Peter 3:11) for our friends, families, communities and world. His soon coming should engender attractive living.
- Jesus’ coming is certain so let’s be ready. How can we be ready? Let’s be focused on getting the message of Christ's love to our world. Luke 19 says we are to live, to work, and to be a part of the community to make it a better place. We have the best message in the world pointing to the best person: Jesus Christ. Let’s be ready to take this great message of hope to a world that needs it. Share it with your neighbor, community, and world, and we get to watch what the Lord will do.
One writer said, “Forgiving someone feels like I’m condoning their activity, and letting them get away with it!” We all struggle with Forgiveness. Here are three motivating reasons to forgive.
- Lack of forgiveness can be harmful to our body. Psalm 32:3-5 speaks to the anxiety we feel, and the sad consequences we will experience, when we refuse to forgive. Forgiving others is healthy for our soul and body.
- Forgiving others is an expression of the greatest commandment to love others (Matthew 22:37-40). When I hold a grudge, I am chained to my hurts. I am choosing to nurse the wound, and not to love the person who hurt me. Forgiving frees me.
- Forgiving others is like God. Since God has forgiven you of EVERY one of your sins, He has called us to forgive others and be like Jesus (Ephesians 4:29).
- Instead of taking matters into our own hands, we can forgive. Our ability to forgive is directly related to our comprehension of the grace of God. When we extend grace to those who have hurt us, we are truly like Jesus who loved us and gave Himself for us.
Wondering if we are in the will of God can be difficult. Here are five ways to help us process God’s will.
- Believe God wants to guide our lives. Psalms 37:23 says, “The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives.” God cares about the details of our life and wants to lead you.
- Pray about everything (I Thes.5:16-18). There’s nothing too big or too small to pray about. As pastor once said, “If it’s on your mind, it’s on His heart.”
- Search the Scriptures. Psalms 119:105 says, “Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.” God guides us right where we are (lamp to my feet) and leads us (a light to my path) by obeying His word. He often uses the wise counsel of others so listen for nuggets of truth from your friends.
- Realize opposition does not mean we are outside the will of God. Sometimes, it’s harder as we serve Him (Philippians 1:29), but God is always with us and for us. (Romans 8:31).
One writer said, “Freedom is not the ability to do what we WANT, but the ability to do what’s RIGHT.” We all know the struggle we daily face, (Romans 7:19-20) and whoever sins is a slave to sin. But spiritual maturity and true freedom are found when we look to please God.
Since we are all a masterpiece in process (Ephesians 2:10), God has called us to be free to do what’s right. God wants us to take our freedom in Christ, and maximize our own personalities, traits, gifts, and talents to make much of Jesus. (Isaiah 43:7) Paul wrote in Galatians 5:1, "So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law." We don’t have freedom to sin, but a freedom from sin! We are bondservants of Christ, captured by His love, fully forgiven and free to give our lives for Him!
God does speak to us today. The primary way He speaks to us is through the Bible. The Bible is God’s Word for us and to us. It says, “For the word of God is alive and powerful...” (Hebrews 4:12).The Bible is primarily what we know about God and Jesus and His word contains what He wants to speak to us.
Through His Word, we can discern if it is really God speaking to us as opposed to our own heart's desires (2 Tim. 3:16-17, John 10:5,17, 27) or other unhealthy voices. God also speaks to us through His Spirit as He guides us through life like a Silent Shepherd. His leading will always be in keeping with His Word and the glory of Jesus (John 16:14). He also speaks through the teaching of the bible (Ephesians 4:12) as communicators rightly divide the Bible and share it in all its beautiful truth.
Grief and Comfort
We all live in a world that is demanding more and more from us, and if we are not careful, we may find ourselves burnt out. Therefore we must practice good self-care and engage in life-giving activities. Establishing healthy rhythms of rest is possible, but only with intentionality. To deal with burnout, we must begin by accepting your human limitations. We have limitations of emotional, physical, mental, and time, and we must learn the secret of saying no. You may find that you need to prune some activities from your life and find some downtime to relax and get some exercise. Learning the art of obeying the fourth commandment and refreshing your life is necessary. Self-care is not selfish!
Marriage and Relationship Advice
Anger is a common emotion of struggle. Some people get angry by ‘blowing up,’ and everyone sees their anger. Others ‘clam up’ and are just as upset but sit in their room. Either way, by God’s grace, we can overcome our anger by applying these two ways to defeat anger.
- Attack the problem, not the person. When we get frustrated, instead of attacking people, we can channel that same energy toward problems instead of people we love. Anger is a God-given emotion, but it can be very destructive if not controlled. Ephesians 4:26 gives us the boundaries of anger, "Be angry but do not sin. Do not allow the sun to go down on your wrath."
- Slow down. Godly people have a long fuse. Anger can be harmful when we react quickly instead of responding slowly. Proverbs 16:23 says, "He who is slow to anger is better than the mighty." Delaying our response is a key in anger management, and “cooling down, biting our tongue, or counting to ten” are techniques we won’t regret. As you endeavor to love God and people better, we can break the back of anger because we have a long fuse and a large love for Jesus.
The good news is God is not trying to take away physical desire; He is trying to purify it (I Thes. 4:3-9) within the bounds of marriage. God created us to be attracted to each other and to desire physical intimacy in marriage (Genesis 2:23-25). Here are a few strategies to observe:
- Begin with group dating. When you are with a group of friends, the allurements of temptation are smaller and the success of the relationship is higher. It is also a great way to get to know someone.
- Avoid tempting situations. God provides an escape for temptation (I Cor. 10:13), but intentionally walking into the quicksand of impurity is unwise. One pastor said, “90 % of all temptation can be avoided if we AVOID the tempting situation.” That is wise counsel.
- Find an accountability partner. Shouldering the issues of relationships helps when we walk together with an accountability partner of the same gender who is a mature Christian. They will care about you enough to ask the tough questions and pray for you.
- Become the right person. The best way to FIND the right person is to be the RIGHT person who chases the will of God (Deut. 6:5). When we seek God vertically, it oils and enhances our horizontal relationships. Instead of feeling guilty, a heart that seeks God and honors others will yield healthy friendships and even a thriving marriage in God’s time.
People who ask this question should be encouraged because it displays a key quality in marriage: teachability. A person who is spiritually mature and walking with God is more prepared for marriage than anyone else. Marriage demands commitment, passion, humility, love, and respect. These traits are most evident in a person who has an intimate relationship with God. As you prepare yourself for marriage, focus on allowing God to shape you and mold you (Romans 8:28-30) into the man (I Cor. 16:13-14) or woman He wants you to be. If you submit yourself to Him, He will enable you to be ready for marriage when that wonderful day arrives. We also encourage people to get pre-marital counseling since having an enduring marriage is better than just a pretty wedding. As you spend time with your pastor, Christian counselor, or mentor, it will help every believer be ready for the great gift we call marriage.
Having a mosquito in a tent is a big problem. Addictions to alcohol are larger and even harder to remedy. The closer a relationship becomes, the deeper heart issues begin to surface. Since relationships and marriage are enjoyable but hard work, waiting to cultivate a relationship with a person of self-control is essential (Galatians 5:16-23). Indeed, the more the relationship grows, the fruit of the Spirit becomes more important to manifest. One writer said, “the only person you can change is you,” and life-change is part of a life that follows Jesus. To expect to stop someone from drinking or tolerate, it sets the relationship up for failure. People change when they know Jesus (John 14:6) and want to change. The story of the prodigal son in Luke 15 shows the young man desired to change and come back home when he reached his extreme desperation. We encourage people to keep praying, waiting, and be the right person of character and watch God answer your prayers in His perfect timing.
Trusting God for a potential mate can be demoralizing and cause us to make decisions out of fear that results in regret. The disappointment we might feel now pales in comparison to the heartache of relationships and marriages that end in divorce. Because God wants to prevent needless heartache, He continually warns his people not to marry unbelievers, non-Jews because the non-Jews worshiped many other gods. God knew that His people would compromise and start to worship false gods. This is what happened when God’s people married non-Christians. In the New Testament, Paul reiterates this same thought when he writes, “Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?” (2 Cor. 6:14). God has great plans for your life so resist the temptation to settle for less by marrying the wrong person. Keep praying and becoming the right person and in His time, God will give you the desires of your heart as you delight in Him (Psalm 37:4).
Most couples start marriage "in love," but the divorce statistics reveal we need a deeper love to endure in marriage. Since God is the author of love and the Maker of marriage, success is found only in Him. Here are three reasons to take pre-marital counseling.
- Marriage can be extremely challenging under the best of circumstances. When couples come together, two selfish people come together in need of God’s grace (2 Peter 3:18).
- Marriage is full of male/female differences. A different family of origin and a host of other perspectives on marriage collide. Premarital counseling can help each person understand the latent biases that both people bring to the marriage.
- Marriage is full of expectations. One Author called expectations, ‘silent killers.’ When expectations are realistic, there is unity. But unrealistic expectations tarnish many marriages that can end in divorce. Pre-marital counseling flushes out unhealthy expectations and male/female differences in a neutral setting. Pre-marital counseling equips you with the tools to love your spouse as God has designed and brought glory to him by having an enduring Christ-centered marriage.
Pain associated with an affair can be overwhelming. To move forward, here are a few steps to consider: First, grow yourself. Amidst the turmoil of the situation, spending time reading God’s word and stabilizing yourself is critical. Reminding yourself how God loves you and is for you is important. (Romans 8:31-39) You might also get some exercise and eat healthy to help you through this season. Second, receive counseling as soon as possible. Speak to your pastor or a Christian counselor since you cannot shoulder these burdens alone. Third, consult trustworthy family and friends. Share with them what happened and what you need from them. Be clear about how confidential you want them to keep what you share with them. Finally, get connected to a local church. They should be another support system as you can not should these burdens alone. As you apply these principles and know the healing powers of God's grace, you can still have a thriving marriage as God works in both of your hearts.
Divorce can be a snap reaction or the end of a series of disappointments. Here are a few principles to ponder amidst a potential divorce. First, know God’s love for you. Jesus does understand and is for us (Romans 8:31-39). Second, Trust God to build your house. The Bible says in Psalm 127:1, "Unless the LORD builds the house, its builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain." Third, pray for your marriage. Even if you cannot pray together, God answers and hears our prayers (Psalm 18:6). Fourth, Find a church community. Attend service each week and join a small group that can help develop relationships with godly people who you can lean on for encouragement and support. Fifth, Embrace God's attitude about marriage and divorce. The Bible says that when two are joined together in marriage, they are no longer two, but one. (Genesis 2:23-24; Mark 10:8) Divorce is allowed for sexual immorality (Matthew 19:9), and if a believer leaves (1 Corinthians 7:12-14, 16) but encouraging reconciliation is a noble course. We all are married to imperfect spouses and at one time or another, could justify divorce because of "emotional desertion." But take heart; God loves you and wants the best for you and can even transform an unsatisfying marriage into a great one.
Remember that you did not cause this, you can’t control his actions, and you can't cure this; only God can. Begin with prayer and follow with a day-to-day commitment to love your husband the way God loves you. There may be times where feelings of hurt, anger, rejection come up. When this happens, you mustn’t isolate yourself. You’ve been deeply hurt and need other women to express your pain to; women who can provide support, comfort, and who can pray with you. Once your husband begins the road to recovery, don't expect him to become completely free from all sexual sin overnight, especially if he's spent years saturating his mind with lust. I would also encourage to speak to your husband about connecting to a Christian, Bible-based counselor. Remember, with the Lord’s help and with your support; he will overcome the battle with lust. Your job is to continue to pray and extend grace to your husband.
The first step in rekindling your marriage is to start paying attention again. Do you remember how much attention you gave your spouse before you were married? The quickest way for you to put the spark back into your marriage is to start affirming, appreciating and admiring the strength of your spouse. Don’t focus on their weaknesses; name the strengths you see. Remember your words have the power to build your spouse or destroy. Remember how affectionate you were when you first started dating? It’s important to bring that back into your marriage each day. You had an adventure when you had romance. Don’t lose that adventure! When everything is predictable, a marriage is usually stagnant. All work and no play makes a dull marriage. Be intentional about setting up date nights with your spouse and take time just to have fun. Go back to that first love and rekindle the passion in your marriage. With the Lord’s help, you will make it! Remember: The couple that prays – and plays – together, stays together.
Forgiveness is foundational to every healthy relationship. We are imperfect people, and we hurt each other and let one another down regularly. Learning to forgive each other is crucial for preserving loving relationships. These nine words can save your relationship, "I was wrong. I am sorry. Please forgive me." Use them often as they have great power in maintaining closeness in relationships. Forgive early. Don't allow a lot of time to pass. Very often, the greater the time-lapse, the greater the damage is done to the relationships. Jesus sets the bar in forgiveness. He says we are to forgive others as God has forgiven us. Do we deserve this forgiveness? No Jesus said, "If you do not forgive, neither will your Father in heaven forgive you" (Matt 11:26). Choose to be one who forgives quickly and often, allowing God’s grace to prevail in your relationships!
Living in an abusive situation is not God's will for your life. He loves and cares for you, and desires that you experience his love, peace, joy, and the abundant life that only He can give. Abusive behavior was never a part of God's plan for marriage.The first step toward new life and freedom is to recognize that there is a need for a change in your life which can be difficult. Do not try to make changes on your own. You will need help during the recovery process, and you will need help as you address the abuse. Psalm 72:14 says, “He will save them from oppression and violence, for their lives are precious to him.” Realize the Lord is with you and he will help you as you move forward. Taking that first step to confront the problem is always the hardest. Next, be sure to establish clear boundaries with your spouse. Boundaries must be established right away because what we allow is what will continue. Remember, you cannot “fix” your spouse; only God can. Therefore, you mustn’t blame yourself. And finally, consider seeing a counselor. Don’t hesitate to reach out for help. There is no shame in asking for help
Paul teaches in the New Testament that regulation of sexual behavior is necessary to preserve the sacred meaning of intimacy and marriage and that two people become "one flesh" (1 Corinthians 6:15-20). Sexual intercourse outside marriage violates God’s purpose, destroying the meaning of total union that He intended. The order that God established in regards to marriage is to “Leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife”(Genesis 2:24). That is to say that the goal of dating is to marry and become one, not fornicating and living in sexual sin. Once a person commits to marriage and becomes one, God’s desire is for us to enjoy sex in the context of marriage.
Remember, your spouse is not a project. You do not have the power to save them; only Jesus does. If your spouse is not a Christian, your job is to model Jesus to them every day. Notice the good in your spouse and openly share it. Name what you appreciate and be an encourager. I would also strongly encourage you to pray for your spouse’s salvation. Their salvation is ultimately in the hands of God. Your job is to pray and be a light in the home! Don't let the matter destroy your marriage. Live your life and be an example. Mathew 5:16 says, “Let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
Salvation/Rededication to Christ
We all have moments where we feel stale spiritually. A key way to revitalize your spiritual life is to reflect on three things.
- Consider what might be crowding out our love for Jesus. “Is Jesus the One I love the most?” can be a good question. Jesus never called us to a religious list of rules but to a vibrant relationship with Himself. Reflect on other loves that might be in the way and let’s open our hearts for a fresh inrush of Him.
- Remember when you first believed. Jesus said one way can remove staleness is to remember what our love for Him was like when we first believed. Allow your former passion, obedience, and love for the Word to ignite new passions in you by turning from what detours us. (Revelation 3:19)
- Return to the things you did when you first believed. It will help you recall your priority and prevent us from outward religion. Let’s encourage one another to love Jesus genuinely today.
