[Jesus] replied, "If anyone loves me, they will obey my teachings. My Father will love them and we will come and make our home with them."


As biblical verses go, this is one of my favorites. There is a promise and a direction on receiving that promise right there in one statement. Christ is the Truth, and all He speaks IS truth, and His promises - including this one - He keeps.


Peace to you,
your servant and sister, and fellow slave of Christ,

Peace to all of you


Here is a verse that has recently been sobering and encouraging to me.

Mat 19:29
And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields for my sake will receive a hundred times as much and will inherit eternal life.

Years ago, I use to cut people out of my life for the WTBS, with no reward. Now, my family has rejected me as an apostate. There is no comparison between leaving family for Jehovah and losing family for the sake of our Heavenly Father Jah.

Your brother in Christ
