What A Beautiful God!

12Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation—but it is not to the sinful nature, to live according to it.
13For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live,
14because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
15For you did not receive a spirit that makes you a slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, "Abba, Father."
16The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children.
17Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
Romans 8:12-17

Have a blessed day today,

Yes, we have a beautiful God. Terrific video and pictures. Romans 8 is perhaps my favorite chapter in the New Testament. Thanks for posting.

God is not only beautiful, but amazing in his grace, to forgive all his children that seek him and ask his forgiveness.

Beautiful song, video, and message.

I came back sister coz after posting my previous comment, it hit me that "Loving God" was what the pastor gave my hubby and other fathers on a Father's Day as gifts. I started reading it this afternoon. I was amazed to discover that he was the one who actually started Prison Fellowship, that is a big organization. It's amazing when God wants to show you something and He uses your own sisters doing so. So, I'm glad you told me about him. His search for God is inspiring! Thank you again for sharing. God bless. Love you in Christ :)
