It’s All About Jesus

“Lemons into Lettuce

1 John 2:1-2

 

The greatest pain is born from the greatest love.

 

The power of love is embracing powerlessness.

 

Laws don’t change peopleLove does.

 

Instead of spilling blood to get to GodGod spilled His blood to get to us.

 

If you don’t let God transform your pain, you will transmit your pain.

 

Let us draw near to God. Let us hope in God. Let us spur one another to love God, love people and live surrendered.
