Moments with God
New Testament Bible Reading Plan
Day 88

I wanted to share a picture with you that I found yesterday on pinterest.  I believe it really sums up what John has been sharing with us throughout the three books he wrote.  It happens to be one of the verses in yesterday’s reading, and when I shared it on my facebook page my daughter said, “Actions speak louder than words…love this!”  I totally agree with her assessment of this verse…we have to love others in word and in our actions towards them!


Today’s Bible Reading – 2 John – 3 John

I am writing to remind you, dear friends, that we should love one another. This is not a new commandment, but one we have had from the beginning.  Love means doing what God has commanded us, and he has commanded us to love one another, just as you heard from the beginning.” 2 John 1:5-6

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
