To say that I am made in the image of God is to say that love is the reason for my existence, for God is love.
From 1 John 4:15-16: “God abides in those who confess that Jesus is the Son of God, and they abide in God. So we have known and believe the love that God has for us.”
Carry the cross patiently, and with perfect submission; and in the end it shall carry you.
From Luke 14:27: “Whoever does not carry the cross and follow me cannot be my disciple.”
If you desire to profit, read with humility, simplicity, and faithfulness.
From Isaiah 50:4-5: “The Lord God has given me the tongue of a teacher, that I may know how to sustain the weary with a word. Morning by morning He wakens–wakens my ear to listen to those who are taught. The Lord God has opened my ear, and I was not rebellious, I did not turn backward.”
