Love

God as wonderful and mysterious as he is, how would you describe him? Not that you could ever put God into a box because there are things of God that are secret he is so vast that our finite minds cannot even begin to grasp Him. The Bible says "God is Love." (1John 4:8) "God is Love" all of the love that exist in the world came from the creator God because "God is Love". It is his very character to love. God created the universe because of love and even though man rejected Him He has provided us a way out of this evil world because of His love. God Himself came in the man Jesus Christ and died a sinner’s death on the cross for a crime he didn’t commit; he took upon Himself your sins and mine. That my friend is love! “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” (John 15:13) God offers everlasting life to all who will receive it and all you have to do is repent and put your trust in Jesus Christ. No longer trust in your own goodness but trust in the goodness of Jesus to save you on the Day of Judgment and admit you are a sinner you’ve broken God’s commands. Jesus said in (Luke 24:47) “There is forgiveness of sins for all who repent.” If you do that you will move from death to life and will receive the Holy Spirit of God. God’s very own Spirit will come into you and make a home with you. “And God has given us his Spirit as proof that we live in him and he in us.” (1 John 4:13)

“God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them.” (1John 4:16) I’m not talking about the kind of love the world has but I’m talking about a perfect love that defies all understanding. I’m talking about a kind of love that a human being is only capable of when you have the spirit of God living in you. People will often say that they love a certain person but what they really mean is they like the way that person makes me feel. The Bible says it’s easy to love someone who loves you or is kind to you. (Luke 6:32) But Jesus said to love everyone. Everyone! Is that possible to love everyone no matter who they are what they say how they think their belief system no matter how they look. Jesus said to “love your enemy! Do good to those who hate you. Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you.” (Luke 6:27-28) Are we cable of this kind of love? Left to our own devises we are not, human beings all of us are selfish self seeking people bent on satisfying our own wants and desires. “For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly.” (Romans 16:18 NKJV) So are we cable of following the Golden Rule: “Do to others as you would like them to do to you.” (Luke 6:31) Are we capable of loving everyone? By ourselves I say no but if you are a child of God you have The Spirit of God living in you. If “God is Love” then you are capable of unspeakable amounts of love for all people. Jesus Said: “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)

The Three Aspects of Faith

Faith is made up of three things: knowledge, belief, and trust…Faith is believing that Christ is what He is said to be and that He will do what He has promised to do. (Spurgeon, C.H.) “Whoever will call on the name of the Lord will be saved.”  How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?. . So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. (Romans 10:13-14, 17) When sharing the gospel publicly, and more specifically through open-air preaching you will likely be stopped from preaching by someone who claims to be a Christian.  Oftentimes when preaching in open-air, you will be preaching to a moving crowd.  Someone may walk by and hear you talking about sin and judgment.  Another may walk by and hear you talking about Christ redemptive work on the cross.  I use to think that there was the possibility that those who claimed to be Christian, who stopp

William George Davis, RN

Today I write with a broken heart an open-letter to my nursing colleague, friend and I hope, brother in Christ William Davis, RN. Will has been accused of murder and was arrested on April 11, 2018. I write this as an open-letter because this has become an open-matter. Will Davis and Family Copied from Facebook Dear Will, I miss your smiles and your jovial laughter on our nursing unit. I first meet you about 5 years ago in the spring of 2013. My wife met you before I did; I remember her telling me, “I met a guy in orientation who is going to work on your unit, he is so excited to work on your unit and is real fun.” From that time on you were usually laughing and all smiles. Often times you brought a bag of candy to work, because of this, and your jovial laughter I nicknamed you the Candyman and would even sing in your presences, “Who can make the sun rise and cover it with cheer…the Candyman can, the Candyman can because he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good.”

Come Follow Me

Mark 10 It was Jesus’ custom to teach when a crowd gathered. He taught that it is not God’s will that a wife and husband should separate, for he considers them one flesh. Later, his disciples questioned him about this and Jesus told them that to divorce and marry another is committing adultery. Jesus used the metaphor of how a child excepts as being the way we should except the kingdom of God. Jesus corrected a rich young man’s understanding of good and showed him that to repent and follow Jesus Christ is the only good that a man can do. It is impossible for people to enter the kingdom of God but with God all things are possible. Jesus promised eternal life to all who leave whatever is holding them back from following him. On the journey to Jerusalem, Jesus told his disciples about his coming arrest, trial, humiliation, suffering, death and resurrection three days later. James and John sought honor for themselves at Jesus right and left sides in his kingdom, but he told them, it is for
