To Experience Love

Johnny and Brandt: Best friends and cousins

We have all experienced love from somewhere. Just look at these cousins. But, have you felt God’s forever love for you?

Paul believed he was to preach the “unsearchable riches of Christ” and to show others the mystery of the gospel and the wisdom God had in allowing us bold access to Him through our faith in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 3:1-12). When he wrote this, he was under house arrest in Rome, but he didn’t want them to worry or be discouraged about it. Instead, he wanted them to experience the love that their Savior had for them and to go on becoming more like Him (3:14-19).

How? It takes roots. You have to be grounded. A life built without a strong foundation will crumble. That is why your beliefs about Jesus are so important.

Do you agree with what He said about Himself?

About Carol Brandt

I earned a B.A. in History from Florida State University and M.Ed in.Higher Education from Florida Atlantic University. I taught high school social studies before “retiring” to full-time homemaking and raising two daughters. Now I love being a grandmother to four boys and a girl. I have also raised five collies.

My husband, John, was an optometrist, who worked tirelessly for his profession through private practice and as a consultant, and served on the Board of Trustees of Illinois College of Optometry for twenty years.

Ernest Reisinger was my chief mentor in this warm-hearted application of Calvinism. He gave me many books! The Founders Journal and Founders Conferences, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, and Charles Spurgeon have been other sources of Reformed thinking as well as the other warm-hearted ones listed in my book, “Warm-hearted Calvinists.”
