contemplating the Scriptures

Acts 10:44-48

Peter is visiting the home of Cornelius, a devout man who reveres God and is an officer in the Roman army of occupation. Among those present are members of Cornelius’ household and Jewish Christians who have accompanied Peter from Joppa.

1 John 5:1-6

The author expands on themes he has mentioned earlier. Loving God means loving his children also. So we should see God's love in our love for each other.

John 15:9-17

After the Last Supper, Jesus continues to prepare his disciples for the time when he will no longer be physically with them. He has said that he is the true vine, that God is the owner of the vineyard, and that the disciples are the fruit. They represent Jesus in the world – to bear fruit, to bring others to belief in him.
