You Are Loved! Believe This!

I don’t know why it is so difficult for you to believe God loves you! God loves everyone! He does! He loves the Democrats, the Republicans, the Muslims, the queers, the unbelievers, everybody! God loves the WORLD! Everyone in it!

John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 1For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

When you and I accept this, when the WORLD accept this love, it would be easier to live a life worthy of this love. When you love someone, you do things to make that person happy, not hurt the person! So also is with the Lord. You will desire to please Him in all your ways!
Hebrews 3:12 See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God.

If the world believes that he or she is loved, this is where transformation begins! What you come to believe God does not like drops off of you when you genuinely love the Lord. You will cry out to your maker to help you get rid of what you now know is filth and lies!

Will you accept God’s love today? While it is today, as you hear God’s voice reading this, harden not your heart!

Hebrews 3:15 As has just been said:“Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.

Whoever believes in Christ Jesus is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

Do not reject the love of God. Open up your heart to faith!

Shalom!

Do Good. It Pays Better!

Romans 2:7 To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. 

But for those who are self-seeking and who reject the truth and follow evil, there will be wrath and anger. 

There will be trouble and distress for every human being who does evil: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile; 

10 but glory, honor and peace for everyone who does good: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. 

11 For God does not show favoritism.

It pays to do good, not only to those that appreciate or will pay you back. Just be a nice person and listen as the Lord leads you to touch another. You never know when God will reward you. Moreover, there is a kind of satisfaction that you get inwardly when you are able to bless someone even secretly.

Likewise, the evil you do when no one is looking will find you out and you will not see it coming. It will be larger than the evil you did to someone, a cause, or an organization. Repent! Start doing good, peradventure your good will undo the evil you have done.

God is no respecter of person! Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows – Galatians 6:7 What you sow is what you will reap! Sow good seeds!

Shalom

You Must Be Built Up

Every child start life on milk from the mothers breast and then graduate to formulas. Gradually the child is weaned from milk, both mothers milk and formulas and started on light solids, peas, fruits, fish, until gradually the child is grown enough to eat every kind of food.

So is with us as Christians, we start up after salvation with forsaking our old ways of living. We embrace righteousness through Christ and drop of unholy living, lying, being troublesome, sexual immorality, murder, and all kinds of evil. We are weaned off such way of living at our conversion. We however must not remain there. We need to grow, feeding our spirit man with the word of God as the Holy Spirit help us.

To get us to be transformed Christ gave gifts unto some from amongst us to help feed us with depth of insight revealed from The Word so we can mature in our knowledge of God and what Christ Jesus attained for us

Ephesians 4:11 So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, 12 to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up 13 until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.

14 Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of people in their deceitful scheming.

We however, must be careful of what we are being fed. As a child, when an infant or toddlers are fed something they do not like, the child will vomit such, spit it out, reject it, even though they cannot speak, signalling to the adult that I don’t want this. So also as born again and spirit filled individuals, we must be able to spit out teachings that are contrary to Christ. Most do not know falsehood from the pulpit because they have not been reading their Bible. Many are fed false narratives not in the Scriptures.

To build your spirit man up, you must take time to read your Bible with the help of the Holy Spirit. It is the Holy Spirit that gives understanding of what you are reading. You must learn to discern truth from falsehood or else you will be tossed here and there.

While men slept, friends, the enemy has sown weeds amongst the good seed of God. The gifts Christ gave to many have been polluted by greed, disobedience, pride, and the love of mammon. We must pray for sight to see.

Shalom!
