What Love Truly Is
The famous verse in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 shares what love is all about as opposed to what the world has coined over the past few years and today. Jesus exemplified what love was during His ministry on earth and continues to show us that through His word.
Despite our shortcomings, sins and imperfections, Christ came down to us so that we may be saved. He knows and has seen the ugly side of humanity and yet He chose to save us all. Why? Because according to God, that is what love is all about. 
By His grace and mercy, none of us are abandoned but rather we come together as one in His love. As Christians, we are to reflect this same love and apply it into our own lives. By doing this, we (un-intentionally) show the world the truth behind love and share this love with people around us as well. A love that does not steal but rather a love that gives, sacrifices, heals and lifts up.
(*Lettering based on a Quote by Matt Chandler)

    For my namesake

    We should be constantly comparing lists of characteristics about God to determine if qualities are the same, different, or overlapping. This is especially important when statements seem contrary to each other. In this lab, John Piper models this and uncovers God’s love for us and his commitment to his own glory

  • Imagine a new you! by TD JAKES
Repositioning is not about harboring a thought that maybe one day you can achieve a seemingly distant goal. It’s about having a belief in Self that is grounded in faith and putting that faith to work. Look at how many times Queen Latifah has repositioned herself; she’s excelled in so many areas that many people don’t remember she started out as a rapper.
Your own metamorphosis doesn’t have to be nearly as dramatic. It may simply mean moving from doing other folks’ hair in your kitchen to doing it in a salon, or going from owning a health spa to owning a chain of spas. God blesses what you do, not your feigning and going through the motions. Action must be an outgrowth of a faith that is working.
It was my father’s faith that took one mop and one bucket and turned them into a whole janitorial service. It was my mom’s faith that led her to put an oil lamp to read by at the bottom of the bed, with 14 brothers and sisters jostling all around her, and work her way through Tuskegee. This is not a faith that simply feeds a hunger for capitalism, making money for money’s sake, or amassing material goods. This is not a name-it-and-claim-it, blab-and-grab kind of faith. It’s deep-seated. Without it, no one experiences tried-and-true success.

    The Book of Life

    When you come across an important word or phrase in your reading, stop to search for other uses of that same word or phrase. Look first within the book you’re reading, then within the same author, then in the rest of the Bible. In this lab, John Piper briefly looks at six different verses to better understand the Book of Life.
