Just like Jesus
Loving like He loved
17 Love has been perfected among us in this: that we may have boldness in the day of judgment; because as He is, so are we in this world. 1John4:17
6 He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked. 1John 2:6
1 Therefore be imitators of God as dear children. Eph5:1
Love is universal
Love is a language
Everyone can speak;
Whether you are strong or weak
Love is also a language
everyone can understand
Whether you are Jew or Greek.
With a foundation of love
You can always Stand out,
Stand firm, stand strong,
Stand the test of time.
Love is universal!

Great God (2)
Great is Your will and great
You declare the end from the beginning,
You’re Fearful in praises,
Your ways are past finding.
What of Your thoughts? –
higher than our thoughts.
You’re a class by Yourself,
perfect in every way;
You’re vast, faithful and true – the Way.
You’re great, the greatest
and own the seas.
You’re the New and Living Way.
Just and true are your ways;
Better, higher than our ways,
And marvelous are Your works;
You’re the Master of the seas,
Who rules from sea to sea.
You order and gather the seas.
O Lord, I Love You
O Lord, I love You.
You are my Salvation, my Redemption
my Righteousness, my Fortress
My Shelter, my Shield, my Strength, my Shepherd, my Stronghold, my impenetrable Bulwark, my Hiding Place, my Security, my Peace,
my Assurance, my Source.
You are the light of my life, life of my life.
You are my shelter, shield,
Stronghold and more than gold.
In You I live move and have my very being. You mean more than the world to me. You are greater than the greatest, higher than the highest, bigger than the biggest.
You beautiful beyond description, too marvellous for words. You are in comparable.
Yours, O Lord is the glory and honour, majesty and dominion.
Yours is the power, sovereignty and excellence.
The earth in all its fullness belongs to You.
You measure the earth with the span of your hands. You hold its waters in the hollow of your hand. You rule from sea to sea. All the inhabitants are like grasshoppers. You set up kingdoms and You pull them down.
The mountains skip like rams before You.
You hush raging seas with a whisper.
You declare the end from the beginning.

Seven Sayings of the Saviour on the Cross
There are seven sayings attributed to the Saviour, as He hung on the cross between heaven and earth in the last moments of His earthly mission.
He was the only one born to die. John-the – Baptist saw Him as the Lamb that takes away the sin of the world. (John 1:29) He fulfilled the various types and shadows we find in the Old Testament: the innocent ram killed by God, whose skin was used to cover Adam and Eve before they were driven out of the Garden of Eden (Gen3:21), the Passover Lamb in Egypt (Ex 12:13), the various annual sacrifices, the scapegoat on whom all the sins of the people was confessed on and let go into the wilderness. (Lev 16:21-22).The list could go on and on.
This was a grand fulfilment.
Whereas these statements cannot all be found in any of the synoptic gospels, they can be collated from the four gospels for our meditation and revelation to us today.
Let us see the lesson they offer individually:
Luke 23:34: “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do”.
