1 John 4:19: We love because he first loved us

“Whatever your heart clings to and confides in, that is really your god.” –

Martin Luther

“A body by its weight tends to move towards its proper place. The weight’s movement is not necessarily downwards, but to its appropriate position: fire tends to move upward, a stone downward. They are acted on by their respective weights; they seek their own place. Oil poured under water is drawn up to the surface on top of the water. Water poured on top of oil sinks below the oil. They are acted on by their respective densities, they seek their own place. Things which are not in their intended position are restless. Once they are in their ordered position, they are at rest.”  

Augustine

Come to Jesus

Take His Yoke
