Hopefully, when you look at these two diagrams below, you recognize salvation is what Jesus did and not about what you can do? God wants remorse from the heart, not some weird performance. Trying to act out your faith is only going to exhaust you and confuse others. Please pay attention to the fourth green box highlighted. You are justified is such an important statement because many are trying to overlook sinful behaviors and declare themselves right in the eyes of God. If you believe that God is going to accept your lifestyle, you are wrong. There is nothing Biblical about that claim. Read Psalm 51 over and over again, digesting what God’s word is saying. If you don’t get it, tell that to God and ask for His wisdom to understand. Only the Holy Spirit can move man’s, heart. Ask, Seek, Knock! Don’t stop ASKing till God answers. See More

Prayer and Poor Intentions

Kathleen's Office

Often you can hear a follower of Christ warning others about Matthew 6:3-4 But when you give to the poor, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing so that your giving will be in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you. My question will always be, why do we just apply this verse to charity? If you were to look at the different Bible translations, you would see the words “merciful deeds” in NHEB, “alms” in KJV, “someone in need” ESV, and “needy” in NIV. Allow me please, to take this verse and give it a more personal meaning. Let’s go back to verse 1 of Matthew 6 and take a hard look at a possible real-life application of these verses and let us challenge our intent in our faith walk. Beware of practicing your righteousness before men to be noticed by them; otherwise you have no reward with your Father who is in heaven. 5. When you pray, you are not to be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and on the street corners so that they may be seen by men. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full Matthew 6: 1&5.
Intercessory prayer is for me, the most intimate thing we can do for others. See More

"He (Uzziah) continued to seek God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding through the vision of God; and as long as he sought the Lord, God prospered him." 2 Chronicles 26:5
 
Humans seek what they love. At this moment you could google "drug seeking behaviors" and get a list of what to look for in patients or people that use the medical field to fulfill their desire for drugs.
You could also google the word "Seeker" and get a list of, "People who seek attention," or "People who seek happiness." The list of seekers is endless. See More

Love is Kind

Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, does no act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things 1 Corinthians 13:4-7

 
Love is kind: Use a word that would describe your nature.
 
The word kind is one of those words that has many meanings. If you would reference someone as being kind, for the most part people would think you are saying that the said person is friendly or considerate. If one was speaking as an asthmatic, one could say a dry climate is kind to asthmatics, meaning a dry climate is beneficial. With this definition of kind as meaning beneficial, would people consider you beneficial to their life?  If you were to blend the two definitions together, would people describe you as a person that generously adds to other’s lives emotionally or spiritually?

From childhood, we are taught that God is love. While that statement is repeated over and over again, do we as Christ followers fully understand what we are saying?
The great copycat, Satan, mimics everything God does to the point that many times evil is successful at deceiving many. With that said, God gave us one fact that Satan cannot contend with and that is "By this, all men will know that you are My disciples if you have love for another" John 13:35. Why you may ask? Because God is love and Satan is not God! Demonic love comes out narcissistic, cruel, detached, cold and immune to reality. But even the compassion of the wicked is cruel. Proverbs 12:10b See More
