Beginning a new journey......this time In Jesus

 Today, while praising and thanking God, my thoughts went to God's Love for us. God is Love! Even while I was dying from the disease, and doubting he would heal me! Still He loved me! Even with my evil past, when hatred was in my heart. He still loved me! My sisters  may never forgive or forget my transgressions.........Yet, The Father does not see them, since I have accepted Jesus into my Heart. Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:" 

I have done nothing to deserve Righteousness through Christ; nor will I ever earn it! Yet, God loves me still. I have done nothing to deserve HIS Grace, through which is the only way that I changed. Not through trying to do it of my will, for I could not. Only through and in Christ have I changed. So should I look at my past and beat myself up continually for it............NO! I have and do experience God's Love Through Christs' finished work!

I walk down the street and meet one who does not believe, should I brow-beat him and say Sinner turn from your ways, you are going to Hell! NO, I shouldn't for I have committed his sins and probably more, I have done nothing to EARN SALVATION! What I do is to look into the Sinners eye and say God Loves You, as you are right now. Many times that is all I say, everytime I pray that God will prepare his heart. Proverbs 16:1 The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the Lord." Proverbs 3:3 "Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:"

We reach others by showing them God's Love, not by condemnation...........for we were all condemned. God is merciful, should not those who believe, be just as merciful. Revelation tells us that even in the last hour God offers mercy: Revelation 14:7 "Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters." Revelation 16:9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory."       They repented not to give him glory...........evidently they were given another chance. Even during God's wrath he gives a chance to the wicked. 

Mark 12:31 "Love your neighbor as you love yourself. There are no commands more important than these." Judgement is for Our Father and Jesus not for us. Fear of punishment has changed only a very few.........look at our court system and see how well it works. God's Love is what changes us.
