We learn in Life Lines: Quotations of Victor Paul Wierwille that “Three things must constantly be recognized: (1) the absolute trustworthiness of God’s Word, (2) Jesus Christ’s complete and finished work, and (3) the reality of our relationship to God as sons and daughters.” The first three feature articles in this issue give us a deeper recognition and understanding of God’s great love for us in these categories so that we can, in turn, live His love bigger than ever before.

Bob Moynihan paints a clear picture of “The Absolute Trustworthiness of God’s Word” by showing the trustworthy nature of God, the fulfillment of His redemptive plan for mankind, and examples of believers in the Bible who trusted His promises and took action to see them come to pass. In “Free in Christ by His Complete and Finished Work,” Greg Bolchalk explains how Jesus Christ perfectly fulfilled the law regarding the sacrificial Passover lamb and made complete atonement for us so that we could become sons of God.

Michele De Lisle shows how we can continue to cultivate and enjoy “Our Relationship with God as His Sons and Daughters” on a daily basis by following the example set by Jesus Christ. Dan Hendrickson points out that “The Profit in Giving” goes beyond just having our physical needs met—it’s having such an abundance that we can freely and abundantly give.

In I Corinthians 13: The Love of God, we see a vivid example of how Jesus Christ manifested the love of God by not being envious, vaunting himself, or being puffed up with pride; and we can follow in his steps. Manners and Customs of the Bible sheds light on Eastern “Landmarks and Boundaries” to help us maintain the boundaries of God’s Word in our lives. The Prevailing Word Report gives highlights of the in-residence Way Corps training and an overview of the New England Region Meeting, held April 8–10, 2016.

Why not team up with some fellow believers to read and work the articles in this issue? You could make a list of scriptures and examples that describe the love of God, and then discuss how much greater the true, Biblical concept of God’s love is than the “love” the world portrays today. You could even produce visual artwork that presents a true picture of loving actions and then share your work with others!
