    Are You a True Follower of Jesus?

    Key verse today is Matthew 4:19 KJV. I was never the popular girl in school.

I secretly envied the popular girls, who seemed to have a great number of eager followers.

    How Much Do You Love the Lord? Is It This Much?

    *Updated:  Originally posted May 19, 2013 The question I wanted to present to you today is … How Much Do You Love the Lord? Is it enough that you’ve spoke to Him in prayer today? Is it enough that you craved His Word today by reading your Bible? Is it enough that you have included Him throughout the day in your decisions? Is it enough that you thanked and praised Him throughout your day? Is it enough that you chose to please Him instead of doing something that you shouldn’t do? If ye love me, keep my commandments.  John 14:15 kjv Thank you, Lord Jesus, for loving me enough to…
