Live a Life of Love

It’s SHARE YOUR FAITH WITHOUT FREAKING OUT WEEK here on GUWG.

Here’s one of my all-time favorite quotes from St. Francis of Assisi:

Proclaim the gospel at all times; when necessary, use words.

Accordingly, I’ll keep my blah blah blah to a minimum today. Instead, let’s focus on what the Bible says about this subject:

Do You Love Jesus?

It’s BIG QUESTIONS WEEK here on GUWG where all week long we’ve been looking at deep, thought-provoking ?s from the Bible.

Jesus was about to leave Earth. He grilled out with his disciples one last time and then he took Peter aside and asked him this question:

SPIRIT WEEK: Love

LOVE-ICONIt’s SPIRIT WEEK 2019 here on GUWG. For the next few days, we’ll be taking a closer look at each fruit of the Spirit.

Today’s featured fruit: LOVE.

Why love? There’s a reason love is first on the list. At its heart, the Bible is one gigantic love-fest. In fact, God IS love. The Bible says:

Praying Hands

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. (John 15:13)

We continue our PRAYER-O-RAMA 2019 festivities with a little story about the painting to the right …

Two struggling art students, Albrecht Dürer and Franz Knigstein, were having trouble making ends meet. Albrecht came up with a plan: he would work to support Franz’s studies and then when Franz had sold enough art to support both of them, Albrecht would quit working and go back to school. Franz liked the idea but insisted on being the first to work.

Lift Weights

Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:2)

Look around you today.

See anyone who needs help? Pitch in.

See anyone who’s down? Lift ’em.

See anyone who’s tired, stressed, overwhelmed, frustrated and/or maxed out (in other words, 99.9999999% of the people in the world)? Love ’em.

The Only Thing That Matters

It’s Stamp Out Bible Illiteracy Gently (SOBIG) Week here on GUWG.

To recap, we started with a little quiz to assess your Bible literacy. Then we discussed how to get more Bible into our s. Next, we boiled it down to one noun: JESUS. Then one verb: LOVE. And then yesterday we zeroed in on the job description for every Christian: BELIEVE.

Today’s topic: the only thing that matters on this planet, according to the Bible. Here it is in one beautiful little verse. Meditate on it. Marinate in it. Memorize it.

The Bible In One Verb

It’s Stamp Out Bible Illiteracy Gently (SOBIG) Week here on GUWG.

We started with a little quiz to assess your Bible literacy. Then we dove into how to get more Bibleishness into your life. Yesterday, we started looking at the BIG picture of the Bible by boiling it down to one noun: JESUS.

Today, we boil it down to one verb. Here it is:
