  1. Hi, everyone! I'm so delighted to be a part of this community. I can't wait to connect with all of you! Anyone in need of a good reminder of His love right now? I know I do.. My favorite verse from here is Job 34:19 – “He doesn't care how great a person may be, and he pays no more attention to the rich than to the poor. He made them all.” What's yours? 1. Ephesians 2:4-5 – “But God is so rich in mercy, and he loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God's grace that you have been saved!)” 2. Psalm 86:15 – “But you, O Lord, are a God of compassion and mercy, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness.” 3. John 3:16 – “For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” 4. Romans 5:8 – “But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” 5. Psalm 147:3 – “He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds.” 6. Psalm 103:8 – “The LORD is compassionate and merciful, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.” 7. 1 John 4:19 – “We love each other because he loved us first.” 8. Isaiah 53:5 – “But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed.” 9. Psalm 103:13 – “The LORD is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him.” 10. Lamentations 3:22-23 – “The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.” 11. 1 Peter 5:6-7 – “So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor. Give all your worries and cares to God, for he cares about you.” 12. 1 John 3:1 – “See how very much our Father loves us, for he calls us his children, and that is what we are! But the people who belong to this world don't recognize that we are God's children because they don't know him.” 13. 1 John 4:10 – “This is real love--not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.” 14. Job 34:19 – “He doesn't care how great a person may be, and he pays no more attention to the rich than to the poor. He made them all.” 15. Zephaniah 3:17 – “For the LORD your God is living among you. He is a mighty savior. He will take delight in you with gladness. With his love, he will calm all your fears. He will rejoice over you with joyful songs." ________________________________ www.girlandtheword.com
  2. YOU are never too far gone. YOU are never too damaged. YOU are never too broken. YOU are never too anything for God. YOU ARE LOVED! Romans 8 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
  3. I am posing those two questions, because I believe they have two different answers. I think that as Christians, many of us may have an inaccurate or incomplete understanding of God's love. My hope here is to initiate a conversation, wherein the participants can bring out a fuller understanding of God's love, than many of us currently understand. I feel sure that there are many here, who are mature in the word, and can contribute to this topic. I hope that each post has information to offer, not just an opinion of a yes or know, as if this was a poll. I good read, and an excellent free resource, is by noted New Testament scholar, Don Carson. I reserve the right to close this topic, if it gets ridiculously redundant, bitter, or so long that it is in danger of intimidating new readers because of it's length. I know some will not read threads, when the post count gets really high. They may have an interest in the topic, but do not want to wade through a tedious amount of verbiage. If I decide to close it, I will probably add a final post with a bulleted list of all the points you were able to develop about God's love from the pages of scripture.
  4. There are so many words in the bible that are not only powerful, but can alter and completely change a person's life if the let God. Amoung those words, one of them that I want to focus on is "but God." Your probably scratching your head about now, but read through, and see if it helps any Romans 8:31 "What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us?" My main focus here is that even though your struggling, NOTHING, will overtake and overcome you. For we have a loving and caring GOD, whom is much larger than anything the world can regurgitate and put upon us. Acts 3:14-19 "But you denied the Holy One and the Just, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, and killed the Prince of life, whom God raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses. And His name, through faith in His name, has made this man strong, whom you see and know. Yes the faith which comes through Im has given him this perfect coundness in the presence of you all. Yet now, bretheren, I know that you did it in ignorance, as you did also your rulers. But those things which God foretold by the mouth of all His prophets, that the Christ would suffer, He has thus fulfilled. Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord." The very same forgiveness we can recieve, the same cry is for us. We mess us, we independantly pinned Christ to the cross. And he bore these things out of love, to reunite us with Him, so that we may be heirs of the Kingdom! There truly is NO pit too deep that God's grace, love, and mercy, does not run deeper. We see our brokeness and think LORD, what have I done, I don't deserve this, I don't deserve you. . . BUT WAIT! The LORD still calls you, think back to the prodigal son in Luke 15, and how the son was ungreatful, sinned against Heaven and his earthly dad. But despite this, the father rejoiced more over his son returning, rather than cursing him, he was thankful! For he knew that the LORD had restored him, that redemption won, that God had mended his heart that was frail and filled with greed. So shall it be in Heaven, when one of God's creation returns to Him and becomes a child of God. Heaven will rejoice, and throw the biggest party! ~Again, there is no pit that is too deep that God's love does not run deeper~ No matter where you are, he longs for you, and when you return, He is Joyful, He does not wish to question you, interigate you, question you. . .but He welcomes you in loving, compassionate arms, longing for your return. Isaiah 1:18 Come now, and let us reason together," Says the LORD. "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; Though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool." Psalm 49:15 "But God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave, For He shall receive me." If your backslidden, beating yourself up because you believe the voice telling you that your not good enough, stop. . .and listen. . .Take God at HIS word, and believe. Because the blood of Christ cries out and procalims you, over anything that tells you otherwise. You are made new, by the blood of Christ you are forgiven. Not by what you have done, or what we can do, but because of His grace, none can boast for this is truly by the mercy and love of God! Psalm 86:5 "For You, LORD, are good, and ready to forgive, And abundant in mercy to all those who call upon You." Not to some, not to just your neighbor, or the person who is a bit "better" than you, but ALL who call upon HIS name, are made new! Jehovah Rophe, the Lord healeth! No longer be torn in two by the grace of God and the memories of your past. God has blotted out your past, and your literally made a new creation and washed by the blood of Christ, if He can forgive you, why can't you learn to forgive yourself? Ephesians 2 And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, 2 in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, 3 among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others. 4 But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6 and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. 11 Therefore remember that you, once Gentiles in the flesh—who are called Uncircumcision by what is called the Circumcision made in the flesh by hands— 12 that at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. 13 But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. 14 For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, 15 having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, 16 and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. 17 And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. 18 For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father. 19 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit. Another lesson I think that needs to be focused on is those in need, the ones that need healing, weather it be emotional, physical, financial. . . whatever the case may be. God has this mapped out and planned for you. God is faithful, ALWAYS. We only get a snapshot of the bigger picture and fixate ourselves on this. God has a grand plan for our lives, keep your eyes on Him and trust, nothing compares to the Glory we have in Heaven. We suffer for Christ sake, and we tend to believe and tell ourselves this is because of our past, our sin . . but this is life brothers and sisters! We are foretold of tribulations! Christ promised us a peace of MIND in Him, and that He will comfort us in them! Not that we will have an untempted life! For trials produce strength, and our faithfulness grows as we are put under trial and acknowledge God, and know that His faithfulness for his children is beyond compare! Hold onto the Hope and the promises He brings, our glory and blessings will be full in Heaven, there will be a day when the burdens of this place will be no more, but until that day lets be courageous, acknowledge the LORD and take on our giants in the Name of the LORD as David did! Please the LORD, have faith and trust in Him! Hebrews 11:6. "Without faith it is impossible to please God." Though we cannot make sense of why He heals some, and not others, it is not for us to question. GOD has a grand plan for each of us, and we are live this to the fullest. Coming upon tribulations does not make you a failure, falling down and not getting up does, So I say trust, trust in the LORD!!!
  5. It is my personal observation that a very large percentage of Christians leave Christ's Great Commission to their church leadership (staff & volunteers). One of the reasons might be they need 'tools' that can be used to answer Biblical Questions. In that vain, I've created a series of videos under this Topic Title. The first video could be used to answer a question that I hear a lot from non-believers. That question is: "How can a loving God allow murder, rape, etc." The video is 10 minutes long. I hope that you find it useful to strengthen you and to help you share with non-believers. It is at the following link. [media=] SamS
