"God is for us" (Rm 8:31). He "did not spare His own Son but handed Him over for the sake of us all" (Rm 8:32). After that, will He not "grant us all things besides?" (Rm 8:32) God couldn't love us more. He loves us unconditionally, ... More

When Jesus comes in glory on Judgment Day, He will judge us on whether we fed Him by feeding the least of His and our brothers and sisters (Mt 25:35, 42). Jesus is so concerned with feeding us that, when Peter told Jesus that he loved Him, ... More
