We love you! We thank you for all the ways you support the Jesus Saves Social Network in lifting up our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! If this network has been a blessing to you in ANY way, show us some LOVE today! Your words are a Love Letter to God and a source of love, comfort, strength and encouragement to ALL who read them! Just ask the Apostle Paul...Amen! He wrote a "Love Letter" to the church at Corinth in 1 Corinthians Chapter 13.
In 1 Corinthians 12, Paul warned the church not to be ignorant about spiritual gifts, their diversity, and use within the body of Christ (v1). He stated that just because some people did not have certain gifts, it did not mean their gifts were not useful and needed, “The eye cannot say to the hand, ‘I don’t need you” (v21). He told them that love is superior to spiritual gifts, and the necessary ingredient with the use of gifts, "But earnestly desire the higher gifts. And I will show you a still more excellent way" 1 Corinthians 12:31 (ESV). In 1 Corinthians 13, Paul elaborates on the more excellent way of love, its great value, virtue, and victory.
The value of love is beyond estimation. No gift or possession is profitable without it. In 1 Cor. 13:1-3, Paul compares the superiority of love to the gift of languages, the gift of prophecy, miraculous faith, and the doing of sacrifices and good deeds. We must recognize the value of love also, for God's love enables us to do His work effectively. God is love and the more like Him we become, the more love we will possess. (1 Cor. 13:1-3)
The virtues of love include kindness, humility, selflessness, patience, compassion, faith, and love. Many people try to express the virtues of love without possessing love. This is impossible to do. We must posses the Spirit of Christ if we are to succeed in performing the work of Christ. Being filled with the Holy Spirit enables us to practice the virtues of love (1 Cor. 13:4-7). Neighbor! Oh, Neighbor! Look to your neighbor and say, "LOVE." "Love" means "LORD OF VIRTUE EVERLASTING." Jesus Christ is Lord of virtue, and the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 3:13).
There is great victory in love! Family members, friends, pleasures, and possessions sometimes fail, but "love never fails." Faith pleases God, but faith serves its purpose only in this life. We cannot live without hope, but hope will not be needed in the next life. Love is a necessity; everyone needs to love and be loved. Love is eternal; it will unfold in greater beauty and glory while endless ages roll. Victory is assured to those who are filled with the love of God. (1 Cor. 13:8-13)
No matter how gifted you are, how great you can sing, minister, or serve, you're just making a whole lot of noise without love. In what ever you do, choose the more excellent way of love. Love never fails!
Love, The More Excellent Way!

One approach to keeping our youth in church is called family ministry. Timothy Paul Jones, a leading proponent for family ministry offers this definition, “Family ministry is the process of intentionally and persistently coordinating a congregation’s proclamation and practices so that the parents are acknowledged, trained, and held accountable as the primary disciple-makers in their children’s lives” (Jones, p. 33). For the next six weeks, February 16th - March 28th, I will post a blog series entitled "Family Matters, The Family Ministry Shift", with an overview of the historical roots, biblical basis, leading voices, active churches, and strengths and weaknesses, and conclusion of family ministry. This series is based on a research paper I completed in 2013 for my last class in graduate school, Innovations in Contemporary Church. I hope this series is a blessing to you and will provide you with some food for thought as to how we can minister differently to our young people.

I know I gave 3 favorites, hard question to answer. On one hand I have no favorite teachers as such, on the other hand I have a multiplicity of teachers/brothers(some saved, some unfortunately not saved). For me the subjects range from history,…Continue
