Perfect Love

EVEN BEFORE TIME BEGAN! Every time I read that it gets to me. God’s plan for us was set. He is the beginning and the end. All knowing and all powerful Lord. People question God and ask “why would he allow Adam and Eve to fall?” “Why didn’t he stop them?” Yes He knew they would sin but He also knew to what extent He would go to to get us back. Jesus came to die for us. He had us in mind in the beginning. He loved us SO MUCH he chose to shed His blood for us. Would you do that for someone who doesn’t know you? Well He did. #perfectlove #savior #love #Christian #God #Jesus #Holyspirit #idefinefatherhood #marriage

It’s because of His Love

It’s the LOVE and COMPASSION of our Lord that draws us to Him. Not the fear of hell. If you only follow Jesus out of fear of ending up in hell you do not know our Lord. Fear and the Christian do NOT go hand in hand. For it is written “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” 2Tim 1:7. We love him because he first loved us. It’s always been his Love that has drawn us to him. Thank you Jesus for loving me!!! 🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽 #thankyouJesus #God #Holyspirit #love #family #marriage #idefinefatherhood #husbandandwife

With confidence we Proclaim!

“You know what happens to a knight who enters battle without a sword? He loses.” -P.Nate . For the Christian, God’s word is our sword. It’s truth for all time. It’s strikes down all lies that come against us. And what is the truth? The truth is that Jesus is Lord and in Him and only in Him is their life. Let’s say that a knight posses a sword, but lacks confidence? How proficient will he be in handling it? Here too he would meet his demise. So how do we wield our sword with confidence so that we’re able to attack with confidence? By living out what it says. By allowing it to transform us so that we look more like Jesus and less like the world! By being the same person we are in public as we are when we’re alone. By abiding in this word we can stand firm against all the lies of the devil and fight back. Jesus when tempted by the devil in the wilderness struck down each of the devil’s attacks with the truth! Do not allow the devil to cause you to doubt your sword. Do not keep sin hidden in your life but expose everything to the light so that God may cleanse you. We can not proclaim the Gospel confidently if we aren’t living righteously and truthfully. Have faith, keep hope and shine brightly! #thesword #confidence #righteous #truth #life #God #Jesus #Holyspirit #marriage #husband #idefinefatherhood

Curse Not

Once upon a time my mouth was that of a sailor! Lol… my wife was the first to bring it to my attention and for the longest I didn’t see anything wrong with how I spoke. Cursing was harmless… so I thought. And I thought to myself “well if cursing is bad it would speak against it in the Bible.” Then one day during my studying I came upon this verse and my views changed forever! I guess this is what being transformed by the renewing of your mind means (Romans 12:2). I viewed my words differently. Cursing wasn’t harmless anymore. It was in fact VERY harmful. But not just cursing, all my words that weren’t for the Good of the kingdom were harmful. With my words I can bring either life or death. There is power in our tongue and those who lack control of it cause destruction like wild fires 🔥 edify yourself and others but putting away foul language. Be an example for all to see! #thewaythetruththelife #Jesus #God #Holyspirit #love #Christian #idefinefatherhood #marriage #men #husband

Eternal Separation

Hell… it’s a real place where real people go. I do not say this lightly. In fact it saddens my heart to know that some people I know will choose to go there. I say choose because in the end it’s really a choice. God has done everything He can to stop this from happening. He sent His Son, God in the flesh to die for us. God died for us so that we could have LIFE!!!! I know it’s taboo to talk about hell. A lot of preachers choose to focus solely on love and never teach about hell. Just because it’s uncomfortable doesn’t mean we shouldn’t speak about it. Not speaking about it doesn’t make it not exist. It’s there 😔… eternal separation from God scares me. He’s such a HUGE part of my life that I can’t imagine life without him. I can’t imagine life without His love. His counsel and comfort. I wouldn’t mind being tossed into a burning lake of sulfur as long as I have God with me. Do you understand??? A life without God is punishment enough. I pray everyone I know chooses life. I will do everything in my power to help nurture that seed. To help it grow, to help it pollinate others! Jesus is the way! The truth! The Life!!!!! Praises to Him who comes to save the world! Praises to the lamb that was slain! Praises to Him who gives Joy! Praises to HIM! JESUS CHRIST THE LORD!!!!! #thewaythetruththelife #Christian #Jesus #God #Holyspirit #love #life #idefinefatherhood #forgiveness #husbandandwife #marriage

Joyful JOY! 😁

There’s nothing like the JOY experienced as a result of abiding in Christ and letting Him truly be Lord in your life!! DAILY!!! Lol. There’s nothing like it… (BIG EXHALE)… nothing like it 😁😂😂❤️🕺🏾 #abideinChrist #JOY #love #Jesus #Christ #God #Holyspirit #marriage #husbandandwife #idefinefatherhood

Restoration

It’s said that “The Christian army is the only army that shoots its wounded”. Sad but, often times true. A brother or sister in Christ needs to be restored when sin occurs, not condemned! The truth is that ALL of us fall from time to time. NO ONE RUNS A PERFECT RACE. NO ONE. When a fellow Christian stumbles it is our duty to restore them GENTLY and HUMBLY. Not one of us who call Jesus Lord enjoys sinning against Him. The shame weighs so heavily on us that it sometimes pushes us further from God instead of closer. The last thing a Christians needs to hear is further condemnation from another Christian. The devil already has the accusation job down pat! He doesn’t need anymore help, though I know he welcomes it. Love one another and do not pretend that you yourself have never fallen before. Do not run past them and slander them. Stop. Turn back. Grab them by the hand and gently lift them back to their feet. We all need one another. We cannot do this alone. No matter how many times they fall, you be there to love them and help them. Work in the Spirit of Christ, not the spirit of the devil. #amen #nocondemnationforthoseinChrist #supportoneanother #loveoneanother #forgive #Jesus #God #Holyspirit #husbandandwife #marriage #Christian #love #husband
