His Love Is...

It can never be said enough, God loves you! And me! It can never be quoted enough, "...For God so loved the world (you and me included) that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever  (again, that's you and me included) believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life"(John 3:16). Nearly everyone can quote this scripture, believers and unbelievers alike. It's one of the most popular verses, and yet, one of the most difficult concepts to grasp...at least, for me. I mean, God's love seems to have so many facets...He loves us at our best, and even in our weakest moments. It's amazing! I'm not just saying this...I've experienced it...His love...in one of my weak moments. Yes, His love is amazing, yet somewhat difficult to grasp.

PICK UP YOUR WEAPON…AND NEVER GIVE UP!

I’m not really one for war movies and stuff, and I admire those who are brave and selfless enough to join any kind of battle field, be it the Army, the Navy, the Air force, etc. Kudos to you all for real!

We do this every day when we attempt to fight the enemy of our souls with our own devices, instead of using the weapons that we've all be given, “…for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but are mighty in God for pulling down strongholds…”(2 Corinthians 10:4).
It’s sometimes easier to give up than fight. Actually…it is always easier to give up than fight. I know sometimes I've been tempted to hightail it out of the battlefield so I wouldn't have …

Here's a puzzle for you: What is a great thing to have, but can lead to wars and destruction? What can do a whole lot of good but at the same time wreck havoc in the lives of many? You guessed it...money. They say money talks. This idiom is used when referring to people or organizations that are rich and can get or do whatever they want. Money seems to wield a lot of power in society and seems to follow this equation: Money=Power. In this society, money gets you places you wouldn't otherwise get to without it. “There’s nothing money can’t buy”, some have said. “For the right price, you can get anything”, others have touted. The rich get richer, the poor get poorer, and the blue collars get well, either richer or poorer depending. It’s no wonder we all want have some. I mean, let’s all be truthful here: who wants to be poor and broke? Who doesn't want to have all their bills paid, their needs met, their wants funded, and to live the lavish lifestyle of the rich and famous?
