1 John 4:7-8 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. #Bible


Notice The Apostle John addresses us as Beloved, meaning esteemed, dear, favorite, worthy of love.
John is demonstrating how Love from God works, we Love everyone. We need to remember that Love comes from God, we don’t naturally just love in this sense. Our love always has conditions attached, like if I love what do I get out of it, for one example.
God’s Love is unconditional, not expecting anything in return.
Let me ask some questions, what would our family say, do we treat those other than family better than our own family members?
Is our love used as a tool to get what will want from someone?
Do we use our love to win someone over to our side, or to get them to make us their favorite?
All of these are not love, it is merely manipulations that arise from our own selfishness.
If we love in any other way than how God Loves, we need to question our motives. We need to strive to be perfect and complete in Loving, as our God has demonstrated by sending His only Son Jesus to die on the Cross, paying the price for our sins. So we can be Loved by God our Father Himself with His Perfect Love.
To love in any other way says we don’t know God, which questions, do we know Jesus the Christ.
Everyone we come in contact needs to see God’s love from us, and especially our own family.

The Gift

Acts 2:38 And Peter said to them, Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. #Bible


It’s so simple, one simply repents of their sins. Sins are our rebellion against God who says, for our own good, don’t do that, and we do it anyway.
To repent is to stop doing what is called sin, turn from it and turn to God, and let Him lead you in a way that pleases Him.
Being baptized is to demonstrate to God, and mankind, that you have gone under the water, dying to this world. You are dead to this worlds way of doing things.
Coming up out of the water is to demonstrate you now live again to God, and His ways.
You have been born again to a new life with God through the sacrifice of Jesus the Christ dying for you on the cross paying the requirement for your sins.
Wonderfully then you receive the gift from God, the Holy Spirit, our Wonderful Companion for ever, our guide, our counselor, the One who communicates to God what we can’t express, and so on. You have to read the Holy Bible to understand all He is to us.
Our Father God Loves us completely, He provides for us completely, He leaves nothing out, nor holds no good thing from us. He is our Wonderful Almighty God who even expresses Himself to us in three Persons, the Father the Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit.

God Breathed

Posted in Blogroll on October 8, 2015 by activeinspiration

2 Timothy 3:16-17 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work. #Bible


If there ever was or is an argument for reading and studying the Word of God, the Holy Bible, from cover to cover, this one verse is it.
First it is God Breathed. It proceeded out of the very Mouth of God Himself. It would be wise to recognize, and realize that important point.
Then it is profitable, not for some, but everyone. Also for teaching, it is profitable for everyone to be taught.
For reproof, or correction, it is great, and worthy, for making course adjustments, and any other corrections needed in this life’s path, walking with God.
Yes we all need to be trained in righteousness, to know what is acceptable to our God.
In all of the Bible’s teachings, so that we can be competent in all the good we do, even our service to our Holy God and Father.
If we love our Father God don’t we wish to please Him in everything we do? Then we desperately need the Word of God, the Bible, our instruction manual for this life in righteousness – right standing with God.

1 Corinthians 15:56-57 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. #Bible


If sin didn’t happen, there would be no need for death. Sin then, wouldn’t have the power it was given by the Light of the Law of God, which exposed its utter venomous birth of death.
Mankind has been ever since kicking against the goad of sin, suffering the dagger of its eternal death. Attempting to work around sin and trying to justify or reason away its existance. Even denying the existance of God altogether.
Like a law of nature though, man must convey in the end sin still exists.
Being that God does exist, and we have been created eternal beings by God. Housed in these temporal, mortal bodies. Why would we think, or settle for this temporal sinful life?
This entire world, this planet and everything we know has been created in the temporal, subject to time and space. Why would we settle for this sinful existance?
Our Savior Jesus the Christ has gone to prepare a place for us in eternity, to always be with Him. Why would we want to live this mortal life?
Well being created by God our Father as eternal beings in these mortal bodies, living in this temporal mortal existance, causes me to Praise God our Father and our Lord Jesus the Christ for saving us to an eternal existance with Them, free of sin.
I am greatly Thankful for the Victory our God and Saviour Jesus the Christ has given us over sin. Glory and Honor to our God Most High.

God Is

1 Timothy 1:17 To the King of ages, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen. #Bible


Have you ever been reminiscing about your life in the past? Seeing clearly the Hand of God directing you and keeping you from trouble?
Left with those remembrances, I think, we all who are Christians naturally Praise God.
The Apostle Paul might be in this same frame of mind, as the Joy of the Lord floods his heart. For Paul, his words are very descriptive of his relationship and how he feels about our Lord.
As Paul is preparing Timothy for His ministry, launching him on his way, Paul is excited for Timothy and the experiences he will live and endure.
Paul knows Timothy has God with Him and where his decipleship falls short the Holly Spirit will pick Timothy up and lead him on.
Paul describes Jesus as the King of the Ages, declaring Jesus as King of eternity past and of eternity future. Jesus the Christ has always been  King of Kings.
Then Paul says Jesus is immortal and invisible. Jesus is always with us even beyond time itself. Even when we don’t see Jesus, He is still there, with us Christians always.
Paul concludes his praise with a declaration of ultimate honor to our God, no greater value, no higher esteem, and the icing on the cake so to speak, declaring there is none greater than our Wonderful God anywhere, or in any time before or after, and none have done such great things. God Is.

Hebrews 13:3 Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body. #Bible


Remember, so very important a word for we Believers. Those of us who consider ourselves in the body of Christ, the Church.
In our world today those better informed say more Christians are being persecuted, even put to death, than any other time in history. Persecuted even by violent religions who wish to exterminate we Christians.
We need to pray regularly, if not continually for the persecuted Church of God. Asking for God’s will to be done.
We are instructed here to consider as if we are with them in prison and even persecuted with them. After all we are one body of Christ, all parts of the body feel the pain of those parts who are suffering.
Remember we too are still in our physical bodies and in the future we could find ourselves suffering persecution as well.
The solution for all persecution is letting our prayers rise to our Father in Heaven in Christ’s name who has all the answers. Amen.

It is God

2 Corinthians 1:21-22 And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, 22 and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee. #Bible


This isn’t something we do for ourselves, we can’t establish ourselves in anything that would last, its just beyond our ability.
But with God, He can permanently establish us along with the Apostle Paul and his coworkers in Christ our Savior who anoints us. Giving us what we need to accomplish our ministry for Jesus the Christ.
Being anointed by Jesus is to be empowered to do the work of a Christian.
Being sealed in Jesus Christ is giving us His Holy Spirit in our hearts, so that we know God is with us, no matter what we go through, whatever we must endure.
We are guaranteed to be in Jesus Christ because the Holy Spirit resides within our very hearts, and that is forever.
That guarantee means we are with God forever, even death has no power over us, nothing in this world can separate us from our eternal everlasting establishment in Jesus the Christ.
Whatever we go through in this life we are empowered to endure.
We celebrate in the Joy of the Lord because we stand by Faith in God our Father.
