THE GIFT OF LOVE

 

THE GIFTS

 

This is the Second message of a series of Six on the topic of “GIFTS” from the book of 1 Corinthians Chapters 12, 13 and 14.  This month’s message is “Importance of All Gifts”. This is the day, the time and the hour to hear and receive the very Word of God and believe it and stand upon the Word of God.

 

As you read the following inspired scriptures written by Paul the Apostle in the Book of 1 Corinthians Chapter 12 referring to Importance of All Gifts; “WILL WE OPEN OUR EARS TO HEAR WHAT SAYS THE WORD OF GOD?”  “OR WILL WE CHOSE TO KEEP OUR EARS AND HEART CLOSED TO GOD” IT’S YOUR CHOICE.

I ask you now to wash me and cleanse me. I give you my spirit, soul and body.  I will with your help follow you all the days of my life. I thank you for writing my name in the Lambs Book of life.
Thank you Father, In Jesus Name, Amen
