A LOVE THAT IS TOO DEEP

God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

He is a man of honor, commitment, and integrity.
A standing pillar of love justice, and mercy.
Gentle, humble, and kind.
He has slipped into my heart and mind.
He has a love that is too deep, too deep.

Caressing me, not in the ordinary fashion.
He has ignited my passion.
Exciting me with words of wisdom and truth.
He stimulates me with living proof.
He has a love that is too deep, too deep.

A love no-one can fathom.
A love sent from heaven.
He has penetrated my soul and my Spirit rejoices.
He could have made many other choices.
He has a love that is too deep, too deep.

He came into my life and released a peace in me.
With Him I feel free. Agape is the love He has for God, humanity, and me.
He has a love that is too deep, too deep.

“God’s love drink was the blood of Jesus”

POWERFUL LOVE

Powerful Love

Romans 8:35-39, expresses the powerful Love of Jesus for His believers.  His heartfelt, sacrificial, and unconditional love will give us encouragement as we journey through 2018 and in our lifetime; knowing wholeheartedly that because of the agape love of Jesus, no challenges, no troubles, no sufferings, no enemies, or whatever may come in our path, nothing, no nothing can separate us from His love:

“Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine,or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written:” For Your sake we are killed all day long; We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”

“Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us. For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels, nor principalities nor powers,  nor things present, nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”Oh! how powerful and soul gripping is His love for us! How beautiful is His name!

Father, we are thankful for the love you have given us; we can be confident and secure in our loving relationship with You, that nothing can separate us from the love of our Lord Jesus Christ. May we continue to lift Him up while giving You all the glory and honor. Loving and blessing your Holy name. Amen

The Greatest Journey of All

        For if we believe that Jesus died and rose, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with Him.For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so we  shall ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words (1 Thessalonians 4:14-18).

Is your heart, mind, and soul ready for the greatest journey of all ? May God’s words comfort you and encourage you to reflect on your life.

What the World!

via Daily Prompt: Finite

Romans 8

“What the world” an expression my secretary uses when things are going array or if someone did / or said something that was not morally or ethically correct. I just love that expression, it just zooms in to the finite mindsets of many people in the world today and why this world is in a corrupt and vile condition. In my perspective, a human being’s finite mindset is one that demonstrates a sinful nature, whose focus is on material and physical things whose life is rooted in worldly things and not the spiritual. This sinful nature has no moral or ethical guidance. Look people! This kind of mindset is not going to get by with God. There is a need for a major transformation. Don’t you think so? Do you like the world as it is?  Think and ask what do I need to do make this world better? Christians, apostle Paul gives us the answer in Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind that you may prove that is that good,  and acceptable, and perfect will of God.” Yes, I know this is a process (sometimes a long one), but, Christians, you have help, the helper Jesus sent; the Holy Spirit,remember Him? He can help you transform  your sinful natured mindset into one that is of the Spirit.

Christian’s are to be spiritually minded (Romans 8:6), living and walking in the Spirit(Galatians 5:25), not as finite human beings walking in the “flesh” because of their sinful natured mindsets. “Flesh can produce only flesh  but the Spirit gives birth to Spiritual life” (John 3:6). This is a life that is pleasing to God. You want to please God don’t you? You do want to live in fellowship with Him don’t you?

God is the Father of all, meaning that His providential care and love is extended to all (Matthew 5:45), understand it like this’ He is creator of all! Our Father, wants us (Christians) to be empowered and yielding to the Holy Spirit.

The mindset that of the Spirit can change this vile and corrupt world. Just  saying “ what the world” will not change people or the turbulent condition of the world.

Prayer

Father, I pray that  the mindsets and the hearts of mankind be renewed through the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

 

Stormy Waters

Matthew 8:23-27

A fierce storm had brewed causing the waves to cover the boat. The disciples were over-come  they cried out to Jesus”Lord save us, we are perishing.” Yes, Christians we are perishing is it because as Jesus said to them ” why are you fearful, O you of little faith? Is it because many Christians have little faith or lost their faith? Do Christians still believe the power of God? Have Christians forgotten who they can cry out to?

Jesus arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. The wind and the waves were obedient. Perhaps, if there were more Christians who were faithful and obedient to the word of God the stormy waters in the world today would become a great calm. “O you of little faith, cry out, Jesus save us we are perishing.”

“Faith believes, demonstrates obedience, gives assurance,provides hope, breaks down strongholds, builds relationships,and leads to a better world.”

Prayer

Father, save us we are perishing, we need Jesus, to calm the the stormy waters. Father, restore and strengthen our faith, give us an obedient spirit. Amen

“Who is like you, Lord God Almighty? You, Lord, and your faithfulness surrounds you. You rule over the surging sea; when waves mount up, you still them. ”                                          Psalm 89: 8-9 NIV

Peace,Joy,and Love
