Love

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 KJV

He died and rose so that we could live. Yes, Jesus lived, died, and rose from the dead so that you and I could live.

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. Romans 5:8‭-‬10 KJV

Why did He do It? Limitless Love.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. John 3:16 KJV


Life Coach

Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established. Proverbs 15:22 KJV

These days, it seems that everyone wants to be a life coach or a mentor. Sadly, way too many haven’t lived long enough to have developed successful life skills themselves.

Mentors and coaches are good to the degree they have something worthwhile to offer. Find a seasoned mentor that is more interested in your well-being than a check.

You don’t have to start from the bottom. Start where others have left off. In other words, find and maintain a relationship with someone older and more experienced than you who has the heart of the Father.

This kind of mentor will allow you to soar while helping you past the obstacles that only experience can see.

Pastors need pastors as do all five-fold offices and market place ministers.

He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getteth understanding. Proverbs 15:32 KJV


Be a Believer

And he that doubteth is damned if he eat, because he eateth not of faith: for whatsoever is not of faith is sin. Romans 14:23 KJV

I’m a believer, not a doubter. I hope that you are too, because it is impossible to please God without faith.

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Hebrews 11:6 KJV

However, with faith in God, there is nothing impossible for you.

And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God. For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith. Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
Mark 11:22-24 KJV


Faith’s Vision

Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. Proverbs 29:18 KJV

Believing faith in God never fails.

You will only lose heart and get discouraged when you lose sight of God’s vision for your life.

Heart and courage come with focusing on where you are going rather than where you’ve been.

No matter how good or how bad it was, your future holds promise of better things.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jeremiah 29:11 KJV


All Things

I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13 KJV

With God, all things are possible.

No matter what the challenge, no matter what the obstacle, you can be victorious in Christ.

Reach for the stars. Press for the mark of the prize of the high calling in Christ.

And Jesus said unto them, . . . : for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.
Matthew 17:20 KJV


Honor

Wherefore the Lord God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the Lord saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed. 1 Samuel 2:30 KJV

The concepts of honor and respect seems to have been lost to this generation of secular humanists. To them, nothing is sacred.

The progressive left not only has no regard for civility but is also without moral restaint. No wonder, for man without God is given over to the vile and degrading passions of the sin nature.

Scripture teaches us to honor God and to show honor to those to whom honor is due. God has little estimation of those who do not honor Him and His Christ.

“. . . them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed.” 1 Samuel 2:30 KJV

Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honour preferring one another; Romans 12:10 KJV

Honor and respect are critical components to the longevity of a civil society.


In Him

It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect. Psalms 18:32 KJV

In Him I live and move and have my being. When I am weak He gives me strength. When I consider my ways He counsels and guides me

The Lord is an ever present help in time of trouble and His Word is a wealth of wisdom and instruction.

He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he. Deuteronomy 32:4 KJV
