God's step ladder that is already fixed up for you here on earth but has its final summit in Heaven has written on its first three steps these words:
STEP 1. "BELIEVE"
STEP 2. "LOVE"
STEP 3. "OBEY"
For the rest of the rungs they probably have these words written on them: Beloved of God choose to be chosen of God; believe to receive; love IS LOVE from above; to obey is better than sacrifice; correction is not rejection!!
God's step ladder... Love this!
I am eternally grateful to God that "correction is not rejection" God has corrected me many time, but never once has he rejected me. Bless His Holy name!!
