As He Has Loved You

This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you. John 15:12 There are ten commandments provided by God. Spoken through Moses. Then there is the commandment given by Jesus, not canceling the first ten; but making them all possible to do. Through love. In John 15, Jesus is speaking [...]

The Original “Ride or Die”

There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for one's friends. John 15:13 Ride or die.
