Favoritism Forbidden and Genuine Love Expected
James 2:9-10 (KJB) But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors. 10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.
Many people get the intent of this scripture verse upside down and backward. In the verse before this one, God’s Royal Law is mentioned. This law simply means that if a person chose to ... Continue Reading →

Not on Your Terms
Matthew 16:24 (KJB) Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
Yes, it is true God does meet any person right where they are at in this life.
However, God does not meet them on their terms. A true encounter with God only takes place in the midst of His spiritual terms. God cannot, and will not, lower Himself to ... Continue Reading →
Calvary – The Unconditional Love and Redemption
Revelation 5:9 (KJB) And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.
Let us take a few moments to reflect on this crowd who was singing praises one day and calling for Jesus Christ’s death a few days later. ... Continue Reading →

Luke 6:32 (KJB) For if ye love them which love you, what thank have ye? for sinners also love those that love them.
Genuine love for another person is made up of a delicate balance of loving, serving, rebuking, and encouraging them. Loving loveable people is easy and comes quite naturally but loving the unlovable often involves a cost to doing so. Sincere love is made possible through the supernatural power and presence of God and carries a ... Continue Reading →

Wide Open Love
Romans 15:1-3 (KJB) We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2 Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification. 3 For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.
The love of God is like a “wide open spigot.” It cannot be turned down or minimalized. Its power does ... Continue Reading →

Love Without Limit
John 3:16-17 (KJB) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
God’s love cannot be measured. It cannot be contained. It cannot be fully comprehended this side of heaven.
God loved mankind so much that He gave unconditional ... Continue Reading →

Unconditional love Endures It Does Not Erode
Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil; Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth; Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. (1 Corinthians 13:4-7 KJV)
When I contemplate upon God’s unconditional love the face of our Chocolate Labrador often pops ... Continue Reading →

Pause for a moment to contemplate upon the profound love and tenderness of heart God has shown to you as well as other brothers and sisters in Christ.

God Calls Us to Love Fervently Seasoned with an Enormous Helping of His Grace
And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. (1 Peter 4:8 KJV)
Charity is a strong and forceful sounding word which means love. Fervent charity is agape love which is unconditional or not limited; rather it is strong and vibrant and readily available in covering the ugliness marred by sin. Let’s face it sin is ugly and ... Continue Reading →

Bearing Another’s Burden
Galatians 6:2 (KJB) Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
God desires that the man and woman of God share and care deeply about the burdens of others. If your brother, sister, or stranger is carrying a heavy load of burdens God expects His own children to assist in helping to maneuver any unexpected encumbered burdens or spiritual weight. Situations seem much lighter and less demanding when God, along with His spiritual ... Continue Reading →
