The words of this great hymn align beautifully with Psalm 150, which answer the questions of where we are to praise Him vs 1-2, what we are to praise Him for vs 2, what we … Read More
1 John 4:19 tells us that “We love, because [God] first loved us.” There would be no hope for us had He not shown us how to love. But do we really understand God’s love for us?
