All of my life I have heard Christians talk about the unconditional love of God. I’ve heard, and even spoken, about the love of God being without conditions, while people tend to love with conditions.

As I read my Bible I often have wondered what it would have been like to have been there observing the story as it unfolds — to have seen Moses part the Red Sea, to have seen Elijah on Mt. Carmel opposite the prophets of Baal, to have seen the crucifixion. For me it’s always
Most have already heard about County Clerk Kim Davis and her refusal to issue marriage licenses based upon her religious convictions.

This is a great article written by a very precious woman of God. Let’s ask God for bigger dreams and believe for bigger things.
Treat others the same way you want them to treat you. (Luke 6:31) This is one of Jesus’ most famous and most oft repeated sayings. This is often called The Golden Rule.
