God Love's you...Part 1

Love...more than a good feeling. The Lord has laid it on my heart to share about His love for you these next couple of weeks. He confirmed in a prayer gathering I had went to recently. Prayer is sooo powerful!

This is what He showed me to share, I pray that it blesses you as it did me.

The Outworking of love
16 By this we know love, because He laid down His life for us. And we also ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 17 But whoever has this world's goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his heart from him, how does the love of God abide in him? 18 My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth.
I John 3:16-18

Throughout the bible we are reminded of God's love for us and the proof of God's boundless love is that Christ died for us. Love is not simply made to make us feel good--rather to motivate us to respond in ways that make us emulate the goodness. Love sometimes demands that we act in very practical and even uncomfortable ways.

Love is not optional, we are commanded love one another.

Love is demonstrative , our love for God is shown to the degree we show love to others. 

Love is active, an act of the will. We are commanded to do the acts of love. If we shut our eyes to the needs of others, our love for God is called into question.

Love is responsive, we are able to love because we have been and are loved by God. this love causes us to respond lovingly to others.

The world makes love out to be something that is a feeling. In the scriptures we are shown what true love is--scrafical love, agape love. Jesus showed His true love for us. By dieing on the cross for our sins. He laid down His life for me and for You. He commands us to love, this can sometimes be difficult. But if we show others what He has done for us we can do it in His strength. If we are keeping record of each others shortcomings then are you emulating God's love?

God doesn't keep record of our short comings, He says that He will forgive us of our sins as far as the east is from the west. This is an example of His love toward us and of what we need to do.

We love Him because He first loved us.
He first loved us, and when we experience His love toward us it draws us to Him and how could you not love Him. It blows my mind to think of How much He loves me and you. If he cares so much for the sparrows, the birds of the air, how much more does He care for us. There have been so many blessings that I have encountered and was blessed to see of how much He loves us. God desires us to follow hard after Him. Show Gods love today! Know that He loves you and that is enough for me to emulate His love to others.
In God's love,

What is the Truth?

What is the truth?
Truth is not a feeling. Truth is not an idea. The truth is found in the Bible.Sincerity and good works do not bridge the gap of sin between God and man. Only the blood of Jesus can cleanse a person (Heb. 9:22; John 14:6). Sincerity and good works are merely the reliance upon what is in the individual to merit favor with God. Sincerity is a form of pride when it is appealed to as a justification for being accepted by God: "But God, look at my heart. See how sincere I was? I deserve to be in heaven."No. If sincerity and good works were good enough to satisfy God, then He wouldn't have given us the Bible to correct our sincerely wrong ideas, and He wouldn't have sent His Son to do what our good works cannot.Truth is what God says is true.The truth is important not because it is simply true. It is important because truth is what defines who and what we believe in.Eternity is a long time to be wrong. Especially about Jesus.

What me and my Family Believe

What We Believe
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be spiritual! Therefore we remain flexible so the Holy Spirit may direct our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be inspirational! Therefore we give a great place to music in our worship.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be intelligent! Therefore, in our services, we emphasize Bible teaching so God may instruct us how He would be worshipped.
WE BELIEVE the worship of God should be fruitful! Therefore we look for His love in our lives as the greatest evidence that we are truly worshipping Him.

How To Know God

How to Know God

Realize that you are a sinner. No matter how good a life we try to live, we still fall miserably short of being a good person. That is because we are all sinners. We all fall short of God’s desire for us to be holy. The Bible says, “No one is good—not even one” (Romans 3:10 NLT). This is because we cannot become who we are supposed to be without Jesus Christ.Recognize that Jesus Christ died on the cross for you.The Bible tells us, “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while were still sinners” (Romans 5:8 NLT). This is the Good News, that God loves us so much that He sent His only Son to die in our place when we least deserved it.Repent of your sin.The Bible tells us to “repent and be converted” (Acts 3:19 NKJV). The word repent means to change our direction in life. Instead of running from God, we can run toward Him.Receive Jesus Christ into your life.Becoming a Christian is not merely believing some creed or going to church on Sunday. It is having Christ Himself take residence in your life and heart. Jesus said, “Behold, I stand at the door (of your life) and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in...” (Revelation 3:20 NKJV).

If you would like to have a relationship with Christ, simply pray this prayer and mean it in your heart.

Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe you died for my sins. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and life. I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior. Thank you for saving me. Amen.If you just prayed that prayer and meant it, Jesus Christ has now taken residence in your heart! Your decision to follow Christ means God has forgiven you and that you will spend eternity in heaven.

The Bible tells us, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9 NKJV).

Praise the Lord, if you just asked Jesus in your heart I want you to know that the Angels in Heaven are rejoicing for you and so am I. Go to and click on churches to find the closest church to you and go. Go and tell them that you've just accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into your heart. They will be able to lead you to the next step.

God Bless you Brethren.
In the Mighty Name of Jesus!!! Amen!!!
Your sister in Christ Jesus!!!
