Hi Handsome :)

This is Ernest :) - handsome kan?
I love him!
He takes me to the movies :D
Takes me hiking :)

And drives us everywhere! He braves the traffic jams and fills our days together with lots of quirkiness :)

I thank God for this man, who is patient and kind towards others. I thank God for his humility and how he is teachable. By God's grace may we continue to learn and be obedient to walk in His ways. I thank God for our times together and for the future too, whatever the future may be. I thank God for him who loves and cares for me :') And I pray that I too will love and care for him as how God would want me to. Most of all, I pray that Christ will always be our center and foundation :)

We love because He first loved us.
1 John 4:19

good question

The question for the church in every generation is:
Will we submit gladly to the Scriptures?
Will we devote ourselves to understanding them truly, valuing them supremely (under God himself), applying them properly, obeying them wholeheartedly, and speaking them courageously and publicly? 
In every age, some things in the Bible fit nicely into the spirit of the times and are not controversial. They may even win you some popularity. 
But in every age, there are other things in the Bible - important things - that do not fit in the spirit of the times, and speaking them will be criticized or even persecuted.

- John Piper,  Jesus the Only Way to God.
