Blood is thicker than water! Our natural (birth) family is our water family, the Church is our blood (of Jesus) family!
GOD's Love is unique to us because we are unique to GOD!
We are ransomed sinners transformed into saints!
The mind is a great servant but it is a terrible master!
The worth of why we do anything is the worth of Jesus shedding His Blood for us!
Don't give thanks for the pain, give thanks that by the pain I seek GOD in humility!
If you hunger and thirst for righteousness it breaks all other hungers!
Jesus did not kill Himself or allow Himself to be killed! He submitted to the Father's will and died by the means GOD determined. I need to submit myself to the Father's will, giving my consent to die!
Our love is motivated by the Love of GOD, who sent Christ to die for us while we were yet sinners, Rom 5:6-11!
When I really love GOD and allow His Love to consume me then I willingly and joyfully serve Him!
Only then is my service (laying down my life) to others not burdensome, but a joy for I am serving Jesus!
Death always precedes life in the process of redemption and sanctification.
'GOD wants to kill you so that He can raise you to new life!' George Runyan
