If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.
(1 Corinthians 13:3 ESV)
И если я раздам все имение мое и отдам тело мое на сожжение, а любви не имею, нет мне в том никакой пользы. (1-е Коринфянам 13:3 Russian – RSV)
O LORD My God ~ thank you dear Heavenly Father for granting us the privilege to have a familial relationship with you because we heard and obeyed the invitation of your beloved Son – Jesus our Lord and Christ. Thank you for the gift of salvation that is accompanied by help from your Spirit. More than anything dear Lord, we need an abundance of the sacrificial love that characterizes the deeds of Christ while he was on this earth. Bless the young people who are turning in faith and repentance to Christ as Lord all over the earth. Stir up a fresh zeal for more evangelism among nations who do not know you in the manner that leads people to follow Christ with trust and enthusiasm. Stop the constant banter of criticism toward the blessed message of the cross of Christ by those who themselves refuse to surrender their will to the will of our glorious Savior. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
David Binkley, Sr. Gospel Minister
