I suppose learning of His character and His testimony, would help me to understand better how to love like He loves, in service to others; would teach me how to bask in His overflowing love and hence, joyfully live a life pleasing to Him because I understand why He instructs me to live the way I should.

Good day everyone! I had my last exam today and I am finally free..er. And so as I was finally answering my piled up messages, My sister sent me this: And yeah, I had a lot to say about it. Here's what I said: So first off, we know of Jesus. We know He came … Continue reading Selfless like Christ
