May we see through lens of Jesus. May we have compassion on those who are broken, just as we are broken. May we take comfort in our Lord, who cares deeply for us, in this road that we travel. May Jesus name be lifted up, in spite of our weakness, since He makes the weak, strong.

Those who repent with a humble heart, will find forgiveness, and restoration from the Father. He is the one true god! All can have access through Jesus, to those who believe. May we pray today, for those who do not know this joy, and are facing many struggles. As Paul says, make my Joy complete.

There are two religious paths you can take. The way of the law and works that lead to destruction, or the way of life, through Jesus by faith in his perfect life of sacrifice and his resurrection, that leads to everlasting life. There is nothing he cannot over, if you surrender your life to him! Is this not good new, if you are suffering? He cares for his sheep, and leads them to green pastures. If you are lost, seek him and he will find you. Jesus is his name and there is no other.

Shalom – This was the greeting of peace, Jesus gave to his disciples, after his ressurection. It was also the gift he would leave of the Holy Spirit, after his acention.

May you receive this gift, that only Jedus can give today. May you recognize that you fall short, of the standards God requires, but Jesus has taken the penalty, that comes with your shortcomings. He offers it freely to All who will come. Will you come today? He is patiently waiting. He waits patiently, that none should perish, from the judgement that will come. Believe in faith and choose life, not death and eternal separation from God.

What will it be for you? Please share me let us know if you have chosen life and will follow Jesus.

Just as God chose Jesus, he chose us before the foundations of the earth. May we follow Jesus lead, and may the Father be well pleased in our service, and our proclaiming the Good News to both Jew and Gentile.

” behold , my servant whom I have chosen ; my beloved in whom my soul is well – pleased ; I will put my spirit upon Him , and he shall proclaim justice to the gentiles .
Matthew 12:18 NASB

God does not need perfect people, to do his bidding. He needs people to answer the call, when he asks. Don’t try and be perfect, before you serve God. He already sent Jesus to to remedy your imperfection. God uses imperfect people, to accomplish his plan, to those that put their trust and faith in him. Will it be you, today?

Then I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I. Send me!”

The Christian life, is not about remembering a point in time. Salvation is about that, but it is just the beginning. We are called to follow Jesus, and that is not an intellectual exercise. The Bible says that even the demons acknowledge Jesus and shutter! We are Called to Read and study, meditate and pray, serve one another, minister to the weak and poor, share His Story…..You get the idea. If you have been, negligent in this area, confess it. We serve a gracious God who forgives, and separates our sins, as far as the East is from the West. Is that not Amazing! Let’s go out today, filled with the Spirit, and see what God will do. Please share if you see his work in your life today. I know I have already this morning. I had no idea I would be writing this, even after I saw the verse. God is so Good. Thank you Jesus!

The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.
Philippians 4:9 NASB

I want you to stop and think about this, with me for a minute. Jesus’s way, is not the world’s way. We are called to Love our enemies, not destroy and overcome, like the worldly view. We overcome with Love and Compassion, just as Jesus did. Think about an enemy, or someone you are at war (there is strife of some sort) with right now. Show compassion and love to them, but don’t do it to get something. Do it because that is how Jesus did it. The rest is not up to us. God Bless you today.

Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
