Love to all people in the Holy Precious Name of Jesus Christ who lives and reigns among us.
Today and everyday, may we focus on the love of CHRIST in our lives. HIS most important commandments for us were to:
1. LOVE THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART. 2. LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF.
Anything else besides this is sin.
If we love the LORD with all our hearts, then we keep HIS commandments, laws, and will do it to the best of our ability.
We know our best ability does not mean perfection, because JESUS let us already know that we are all sinners. So, that means we never be perfect. HE also knows we are not perfect. But this imperfection is allowed to humble us and make us realize that we need to love one another.
Never being perfect means that we can only work towards the same goal as believers.
In working towards the same goal. May the ones that "seem" to be able to keep their sins away from people, be the ones to inspire and edify those that have their sins constantly outwardly effecting others. Sin in the mind and out to the public is all the same. Meaning that we are all sinners and whether in thought or action, it's there.
May we constantly remember that we are all sinners, and if everyone looks into the depths of their sin, then, they will see that all sins can turn out to effect others in deadly ways. So, we are all guilty, none exempt, and we all need to love one another.
Pray, patience, and perserverance is necessary.
Love of CHRIST is a must.
Trust in the LORD only, and all things are slowly but surely possible.
Believe and receive. Believe and receive.
Let's do our best to live the love that changed our lives. It's our love that will make the change, because it's HIS love that changed us.
Love to all of you in Jesus Holy Precious Name. AMEN!!
Please pray the LORD's PRAYER and please read:
1 Then some men came down from Judaea and taught the brothers, 'Unless you have yourselves circumcised in the tradition of Moses you cannot be saved.'
2 This led to disagreement, and after Paul and Barnabas had had a long argument with these men it was decided that Paul and Barnabas and others of the church should go up to Jerusalem and discuss the question with the apostles and elders.
3 The members of the church saw them off, and as they passed through Phoenicia and Samaria they told how the gentiles had been converted, and this news was received with the greatest satisfaction by all the brothers.
4 When they arrived in Jerusalem they were welcomed by the church and by the apostles and elders, and gave an account of all that God had done through them.
5 But certain members of the Pharisees' party who had become believers objected, insisting that gentiles should be circumcised and instructed to keep the Law of Moses.
6 The apostles and elders met to look into the matter,
7 and after a long discussion, Peter stood up and addressed them. 'My brothers,' he said, 'you know perfectly well that in the early days God made his choice among you: the gentiles were to learn the good news from me and so become believers.
8 And God, who can read everyone's heart, showed his approval of them by giving the Holy Spirit to them just as he had to us.
9 God made no distinction between them and us, since he purified their hearts by faith.
10 Why do you put God to the test now by imposing on the disciples the very burden that neither our ancestors nor we ourselves were strong enough to support?
11 But we believe that we are saved in the same way as they are: through the grace of the Lord Jesus.'
12 The entire assembly fell silent, and they listened to Barnabas and Paul describing all the signs and wonders God had worked through them among the gentiles.
13 When they had finished it was James who spoke. 'My brothers,' he said, 'listen to me.
14 Simeon has described how God first arranged to enlist a people for his name out of the gentiles.
15 This is entirely in harmony with the words of the prophets, since the scriptures say:
16 After that I shall return and rebuild the fallen hut of David; I shall make good the gaps in it and restore it.
17 Then the rest of humanity, and of all the nations once called mine, will look for the Lord, says the Lord who made this
18 known so long ago.
19 'My verdict is, then, that instead of making things more difficult for gentiles who turn to God,
20 we should send them a letter telling them merely to abstain from anything polluted by idols, from illicit marriages, from the meat of strangled animals and from blood.
21 For Moses has always had his preachers in every town and is read aloud in the synagogues every Sabbath.'
GOD BLESS US ALL,
AMEN!! THanks, and thanks to GOD for all wisdom, love, patience, peace, and more.......ALLELUIA!
GOD BLESS US ALL,
Direct translation from the Hebrew:
“Do not have any gods before Me. Do not represent (me) by any carved statue or picture or anything in the heaven above or the earth below or in the water below the land. Do not bow down to or worship them.”
Think about it.
