Peace In The Midst Of The Storm
Most people know the story, of how Jesus slept, while the storm raged and the boat was tossed and heaved, and the disciples were ALL filled with fear and panicked. Here's the difference. Jesus knew God's eternal nature, beyond the shadow of any doubt and had totally overcome and tamed His instinctual nature, that from its characteristic pride, vanity, envy, selfish ambition, desire for creature comforts and fear for survival, feeds the...

True Religion, Is Living For Love
Religion isn't "the church" or preaching, etc. If you look into the origin of the word, it means: To be in a right relationship with God. Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. 1 John 4:7-8 Preach the gospel at all times and when necessary use words Francis of Assisi Many talk (preach) about it and can recite...

Home Is Where The Heart
The kingdom of heaven, while it does exist, is much more than a place or location or a fairytale. It's a way of life, the truth, the way and the life (true way of life) that God intended for us to live forever, in His divine nature and characteristics of absolute, undying, virtuous, true love and the only thing that's stopping you from living in heaven on earth or making your life a living hell, is you. The religious, legal eagles and... Read more

Touched By True Love
True Love heals all wounds, including broken hearts. So many, like Simon the sorcerer (Acts 8:18-29), seek the power of the Holy Spirit. But the power of the Holy Ghost doesn't come from wanting it or thinking you have the right or authority to wield it. The Holy Ghost is the supernatural presence of God's divine nature and characteristics of absolute, undying, virtuous, true love and all the power is His, and to be truly righteous, is... Read more

Beauty Is In The Eye Of The Beholder
If I was a self-conscious and vain person, I'd be concerned with how others see me. Yet I couldn't care less what anyone makes of me, for I'm not man-made (Romans 9:20-21). Having experienced the presence of God's divine nature and characteristics, in absolute, supernatural power and glory, I know what He's looking for in people. He's looking to see if their thoughts, words and deeds come from His divine nature of absolute, true love... Read more

The Path To Heaven Is Paved With Broken Hearts
He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. 1 John 4:8 It's no coincidence that true love is so hard to find. To know God, is to know true love, but how can we know true love, without experiencing it? Sadly, the way the vast majority of us come to know it, is not by experiencing it, but by experiencing what it's not, because as the scripture says, "not one is righteous". Nobody is truly virtuous, according to the divine... Read more

Crazy Big Thing Called Love
For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts. Isaiah 55:9 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.... Read more

RESPONSIBILITY

Virtue of the Week

RESPONSIBILITY

lion-like characteristic

Being responsible means others can trust you to do things to the best of your abilities. You accept accountability for your actions. When you make a mistake, you offer amends instead of excuses. Responsibility is the ability to respond capably and to make wise choices and decisions.

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.Proverbs 22:6
