Love

I’m just going to say it…there are people in my world that are almost impossible to love. I try, I really do try, but sometimes I imagine myself punching them. It’s only a sin if you act on it right? Ok. I see the fallacy in my thinking, but I know I am not alone in this. I bet every one of you can think of someone who might benefit from a good upper cut. However, when I stop and think about how many people might just get in line to punch me, things begin to feel a little different. I’m sure I am on more lists then I think.

1 John 4:8 and 19 says, “God is love… We love because He first loved us.” Praise God that He loves us just because He is love. There is nothing we could do or not do to make Him love us any less. He is the ultimate source of love.

Pray with me today a prayer of “help me love those I want to punch. Help me see them as you do Lord.” Hopefully someone who wants to punch you will be praying the same thing!

Gentleness

Self-control

“There is no law against these things!” – Galatians 5:22-23

I once was struggling with my salvation. I was constantly asking God, “Am I saved? Am I one of Your children?” Galatians 5:22-23 was one of the passages that helped me find the answer I was searching for.

.

But, before I go any deeper, let me say that questioning your salvation is ok. It is okay to doubt. What is not okay is sitting in that doubt and in those questions and doing nothing about it. When you face doubt don’t be lazy. Get busy and do the research. Read your Bible. Talk to reliable sources. Don’t take anyone’s word as is, but compare it to the scripture. Continuously pray asking for God’s help and guidance. As Dr. Voddie Baucham, Jr says, “God gave you a brain and He expects you to use it.”

.

In my struggle, my pastor preached on Galatians 5:22-23. I realized that if I had the Spirit then I was saved. And the way to know if I have God’s Spirit was based on my fruit. I remember what my old self was like. So, I compared my old self with what I thought to be my new self, the one lead by God’s Spirt. Was I showing love? Scripture says that “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” (1 Corinthians 13:4-7) I know I was not perfect, but was I trying to show others God’s version of love, or a more selfish, worldly version of love?

.

Joy, do I have joy even in tough situations and when I’m stressed? Paul writes to the church at Thessalonica that “for you received the word in much affliction, with the joy of the Holy Spirit” (1 Thessalonians 1:6) indicating that joy is associated with God the Holy Spirit. So, to have true joy I must have the Holy Spirit.

.

Peace, do I have peace in troubling times? And where do I turn when looking for peace? Romans 14:17 says that “righteousness and peace and joy [is] in the Holy Spirit” So, to have real peace I must have the Spirit.

.

There is a long list here, so I’m not going to cover them all. But, if you are struggling with doubt and your faith I suggest you do your own research. Find scriptures that explain each fruit of the Spirit and compare your old self with your new self. Ask God for His help and guidance as you do your own research. But, whatever you do, don’t be lazy; don’t put it on the back burner. Get it taken care of asap.

Appliances fail, computers fail, most things can and will fail, but

Appliances fail, computers fail, air conditioners fail (probably fits under appliances), electricity can fail, cars can fail, even people can fail, but God’s love will never fail. As the “The Jesus Story Book Bible,” that my family reads as a devotion each night says, God’s love is a “never stopping, never giving up, unbreaking, always and forever love.” http://www.his-child.com

If you had to make a list of everything you didn’t want people to know, how long would it be?

If you had to make a list of everything about yourself you did not want anyone to know about, how long would it be? We all have areas of our past or current lives we keep totally to ourselves. We are all good at hiding things. But, what if one morning we woke up and those sins were tattooed on our bodies for all to see? Would it change the way you judge or evaluate others? Think you would still marry the guy you are engaged to or have the same BFFs? Flip that around and think how others might treat you now that they know! Jesus is able to see all our sins and still loves us. His opinion of us does not change. He chose to die on the cross for us… While we were still sinners, Christ Died for us! http://www.his-child.com (Shirts to help you witness to others)

Why does society sometimes call what is meant to be a blessing a punishment?

For some who find themselves unexpectedly pregnant,

although circumstances might not be what you had hoped for,

and your worried how you are going to make it through, there is one thing you should know…

To be given a child is a blessing. That baby is not given to you as a consequence or to punish you. That baby is a reminder that you are loved by God. And maybe through the love you’ll have for this child you get a small glimpse of just how much He loves you.

Enjoy your little ones and remember they are blessings, gifts, and rewards.

Kids are a blessing

God loves the atheist.

God loves His creation. If you can read this, know that you are loved. God loves you. He has a plan for you. That’s okay if you don’t believe me. He gave you and I the free will to choose Him or not. But Truth is Truth even if you don’t believe it. And the Truth is that God loves you. He love you if you hate Him. He loves you if you are mad at Him. He loves you if you don’t believe He exists. Have you done some bad things? He still loves you. Love does not mean that He agrees with you, but that He created you differently than anyone else. He put time and effort into you. And He loves you.

(P.S. If God is love, and Jesus is God, as the Bible says, than Jesus loves you too.)

God Loves you No matter What

1 Corinthians 13:4-8 (HCSB)

Love is patient, love is kind.
Love does not envy,
is not boastful, is not conceited,
does not act improperly,
is not selfish, is not provoked,
and does not keep a record of wrongs.
Love finds no joy in unrighteousness
but rejoices in the truth.
It bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.

Love never ends.
But as for prophecies,
they will come to an end;
as for languages, they will cease;
as for knowledge, it will come to an end.
