Not Only “A Good Life” But, “A God Life”

Standard

When our son, Casey was young…

We left a blizzard in NJ…

To fly to Florida…

While on the beach enjoying the sun, sand, and waves…

Casey said, “Ahhhh, this is the life!”

We laughed so hard!!

And, it got me thinking…

Christians are called to be more…

So much more…

To be different…

To be set apart for so much more from God…

To be more in this world…

To live with a purpose…

We’re called to believe all the promises of God…

And live them with God’s help…

Not just a “Good Life”

A “God Life”

A life full of God…

A godly life…

Standing on the promises of God!

He wants to give us His best!!

He created us not to simply live the good life…

But, so we can live life with Him…

He loves us…

He sent His son, Jesus and offered Him up to die for us…

To save us…

And sent us His Holy Spirit to teach us and guide us into all Truth..

Then, we can know the nature of God…

Then, we can become more like Jesus each day…

In this “God Life,” He gives us love, faith, hope, favor…

When we offer up our entire life to Him…

When we trade our good life for the God Life He divinely planned for us!

Take advantage of all of God’s promises…

They’re all for you!!

You are His!

You’re Beautiful!

In His Eyes!

 Amen!

2 Peter 1:3

“His divine power has given us everything we need

for a godly life

through our knowledge of Him

who called us by His own glory and goodness.”

A Word to me from the Lord for 2015…

#1 in my Sermon Series, called:  “Make Me More Like You, Jesus!”

This is what the Lord told me:

“Don’t say “ALL” when speaking of God’s children…Don’t lump them all together like herding cattle…I don’t do that!  I love each and every one of them with a great Love!  I made them all different, with unique talents and gifts!  I’ve even numbered every hair on their heads (Luke 12:7)…I know everything about them…I know their past and their future!  My Father sent Me to give My life for everyone in the world…so NONE would perish!!  NONE!  Everlasting Life!  I’m seeking, and I will find, each individual soul who believes in Me (John 3:16)!  With an Everlasting LOVE!!  (Jeremiah 31:3)

Don’t put your labels on them, any longer!!!  No longer say, “ALL Men, ALL Women, ALL Kids, ALL Teens, ALL Young People, etc.’  No longer say, ‘ALL Married People, ALL Single People, ALL Elderly People, etc.’  No longer say, ‘ALL Working People, ALL Retired People, etc.’  No longer say, ‘ALL Whites, ALL Blacks, ALL Hispanics, ALL Gays, ALL Straight, etc.’  No longer say, “ALL Americans, ALL Asians, ALL Europeans, ALL Indians, etc.’  No longer say, ‘ALL Christians, ALL Jews, ALL Muslims, ALL Atheists, ALL Religions, ALL Congregations, ALL Churches, ALL Synagogues, ALL Mosques, etc.’  No longer say, ALL Working People, ALL Homeless People, etc.’  No longer say, ‘ALL Police Officers, ALL Teachers, ALL Doctors, ALL Lawyers, ALL Clergy, ALL Politicians, etc.’

ALL!  ALL! ALL!  No longer!!

I see each person in this world created by The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, as an individual soul…you MUST see them that way, too!!  They’re people…My children…children of the Almighty God…the Creator of ALL!!  My LOVE embraces them ALL!

Media!  No longer can the world think and lump everyone together just to make a news story sell!  Treat people as individuals!

As children of God, be responsible for yourself to do right and expect individuals to do the same…this is a call for children of God to be more like Christ!

Act accordingly!!”  Amen!

“Christianity” by Reinhard Bonnke

By Reinhard Bonnke

“Christianity…

Has an unconditional…

‘WELCOME’

Above its doors…

For the storm tossed…

The broken in spirit…

And the inadequate….

It is the arm of God’s love…

Thrown around those…

 Who have given up on themselves…

Or been given up by the world…

And don’t have what it takes….

If you would believe…

You would see the glory of God…

 John 11:40

Christ causes us to make it…

We, who otherwise would never make it on our own…

In the Gospels…

We see Him coming open-faced and with open‑arms…

To Him…

There were no nobodies…

Nor riffraff…

No social rejects…

He came for lost sheep…

Plus, to women…

Who were treated as sub-species in some eastern countries…

Even as they are now…

Christ gave honor…

Jesus said,

‘I always do those things that please Him [the Father].’

John 8:29

What had He seen the Father do?

He had seen Him stoop over the wretched tribes in Egypt…

Those Israelite‑nobodies…

Expendables…

God picked them up…

And made them great!

Jesus did the same…

He chose fishermen…

Not princes…

To be His ambassadors…

The Gospels again and again…

Show Him meeting the unwanted…

And giving them a place…

His outreach to the discarded…

Is a moving part of the Gospel story!

Jesus is with the ‘lost’ and the ‘last’…

The lost He finds…

And to the last He says…

‘The last will be first.’

Matthew 20:16″

Amen!
