30 Days of Love: Day 17

Wednesday, September 17, 2014

But as touching brotherly love ye need not that I write unto you: for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.”
(1 Thessalonians 4:9, KJV)

Do you struggle with love? How can we pray for your strength and encouragement today?

  1. As brothers and sisters we are instructed by God how to live. We are also taught about God's love for one another.

  2. By using an updated version of the bible so it is easier for those not accustomed to reading the King James version to understand. The newer versions are translated by a panel of scholars that are able to get the original meaning across more clearly.

    1. Yes, Vickie Fowler, we totally understand; and as you may see throughout this 30 Days we are using several different versions of the Bible for clearer and deeper understanding of Love. However, one thing we try to make sure of, as a ministry, is that we do not utilize too many different versions of scripture because not all versions are interpreted correctly and some scholars have even left out verses of scripture or interpreted words to mean something in English, that they didn't in their original language. We aim to keep the Word of God as it is, and not add anything to it that takes away from the authenticity and context of the scripture. We also strive to break down scriptures in their original language to better understand how to live for God (for instance, in our Mountain Moving Monday lessons we usually break down a word from scripture in it's original meaning and apply it to our lives today)!
