HOW HE LOVES US
Date: 6/19/2015 07:25 - Subscribe


Many people falter in their walk with God
because they feel unworthy or think that
God is mad at them because of their sins.
But the truth is that God’s love for us is
unwavering. There are times when we
must be held accountable for our actions,
but that doesn’t diminish His love for us.
God desires us even when we act
undesirably. He wants us even when we
don’t do what He wants. God loves us
even when we turn away from Him. God
loves us unconditionally. During this holy
season for Christians and Jews, let’s
celebrate that fact and love Him in return.

enough to believe in their capacity to be transformed?

ALL ABOUT FAMILY
Date: 6/17/2015 07:30 - Subscribe


Scripture:

"for whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my
brother and sister and mother"(Matthew 12:50)

Reflection:

if it is true about families that "blood is thicker than water,
" how much more binding is the blood of Jesus Christ that"
purifies us from all sin"(1 John 1:7)!

Jesus blood is a "family ties" that binds you close to your
heavenly Father and make you "heirs of God and co= heirs
with Christ"(Romans 8:17).

Think back over your heavenly heritage: "honor...name...
image...nature."

Then thank your Father that you can say with the saints
of old, "We Are Family!"

Prayer:

Thank you God for my earthly family. Thank you that I can
say WE ARE FAMILY in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Amen

IMPERIALISM

Verse

For my people have committed two evils: they have
forsaken me, the fountain of living water, and dug out
cisterns for themselves, cracked cisterns that can
hold no water. Jeremiah 2:13

Voice

Imperialism leaves behind germs of rot which we
must clinically detect and remove from our land but
from our minds as well. Franz Fanon

Prayer

God, we confess we have too often remained silent
as governments and leaders set up empires in their
own image. We pray that your spirit would embolden
us as we seek to rid our minds and lands of the germs
of imperialism. Amen.
