We love Him and endeavor to give Him the first place in all things. We rejoice to be cleansed by the blood of Jesus, God’s Son, born again of the Father’s divine life, and filled with the Holy Spirit.

Real Love and Genuine Oneness
The Prodigal at the River’s Edge
By the time I graduated I felt malnourished in my Christian life. Outwardly I was a “good Christian” and didn’t get into trouble, however, within, the Lord didn’t have the first place and He was relegated to Sundays. I left for college in Maine on August 1980 at the age of eighteen. For the first time I was not under my parents’ eyes. I tried to throw off all restraint and enjoy the “world” much like the prodigal son in Luke 15:11-32. The more I indulged in the “temporary” enjoyment of sin the more empty and vain I felt.
