A Matter of the Heart...

Well, hopefully you aren't surprised that I've been writing in Life with Lynnie (LwL), about love.  It is, after all, the famous love month of Valentine's Day.

If you've been reading LwL lately, you'll know that I spoke and sang to my church's 50+ group, on Wednesday, February 15th.  One song I sang, you may want to check out, in yesterday's entry.

Another song I sang was Oh How He Loves You and Me.  Here is a Youtube video:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gdxh8opQJY as well as the lyrics:

Oh How He Loves You and Me

O how He loves you and me
O how He loves you and me
He gave His life, what more could He give?

O how He loves you
O how He loves me
O how He loves you and me

Jesus to Calvary did go
His love for mankind to show
What He did there brought hope from despair


O how He loves you
O how He loves me
O how He loves you and me


As for what I spoke about, well I'm sure you can guess that I spoke about God's love.  Probably not as you might suspect, though.

Yes, I mentioned that God told us in 1John 4:8, "He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love."

In addition, I spoke with regards to 1Corinthians, chapter 13, "Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.  And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.  And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.  Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.  Charity never faileth: but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues, they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.  For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.  But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.  When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.  For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.  And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity."

But, the passage that I tried to focus on most, was Acts 15:8, "And God, which knoweth the hearts, bare them witness, giving them the Holy Ghost, even as he did unto us;".

As you probably have guessed, I'll finish up, tomorrow...


Until next time...
