3 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.[a]”
4 “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second time into their mother’s womb to be born!”
5 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. 6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit[b] gives birth to spirit. 7 You should not be surprised at my saying, ‘You[c] must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.”[d]
9 “How can this be?” Nicodemus asked.
10 “You are Israel’s teacher,” said Jesus, “and do you not understand these things? 11 Very truly I tell you, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony. 12 I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things? 13 No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven—the Son of Man.[e] 14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up,[f] 15 that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him.”[g]
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
4 Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant 5 or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6 it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 7 Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away.
1 Corinthians 13 LOVE
And we have come to know
and to believe the love that God has for us.
God is love,
and the one who remains in love remains in God,
and God remains in him.
1 John 4:16
Hope in Today Ministries is here to
encourage you in the POWER of God's love; and to here to remind you that you do have hope in Today!
NOT THAT I have it all figured out; NOT THAT I don't still face struggles, but that by God's grace, I know I can simply trust God, because I believe in His love for me -and I know that in Christ, I always overcome! I experience God's good grace and miracles, because I submit to God in all things ... because I trust God. And,I trust also in Jesus!
I tell of my experiences with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit!
And, So can you!!
Years ago, I was praying for a message to deliver on a live radio interview, and the Lord spoke to me these powerful words; and just a few minutes later I had the beautiful opportunity to speak what I heard the voice of the Lord say:
" Remain in Jesus and He will remain in you! GOD IS LOVE ; Remain in Love and you are remaining in Jesus!" "1 Corinthians 13 describes this kind of love!"
Some time later, I learned by grace ..."and God remains in you!!!" Read my testimony of this in The Train Whistle about the vision of riding the horse!
Learning how to apply God's love (1 Co 13 way) has been triumpant for my life! And so can living your life in Jesus be in yours!
By God's Amazing Grace, years later, I find this complimentary Scripture to those words I heard from the voice of the Lord speak to me in that prayerful moment seeking the Lord for God's help!
Found in 1 John 4:16!!!
" And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth (abides) in love dwelleth (abides) in God, and God in him."
