Simple Lessons

Pure distillation
Living words
informing our understanding
Human existence

Reclaiming the relationship
lost at the fall and each failing of fealty
Purity of faith
Agape love

Living the law
as Jesus fulfilled
One God
Abiding love.

Notes - June 27, 2005 -
Jesus's words on the 1st and greatest commandment and his new one to love one another in Mark 12:28b-33 and then Paul's summation in 1 Corinthians 13:13. Taken together, they alone explain and guide our interactions with God and others. They speak to both God's faith and our faith, to His hope and ours, and to His ability to love, and how we should act toward one another. If we truly understood and lived only these passages of the Bible, heaven would be on earth.
