Shalom and Heyas Gang!

  You know, I am one of those that is so truly thankful for Worthy Forums and the Worthy Chat room.....I have been here for going on 2yrs now, and continue to be blessed over and over from the people in all areas here. There are so many here believers and non-believers alike that bring an incredible amount of fellowship, learning and study to the table we all sit at here. I really enjoy some of the depth and theology in the topics. I also feel so touched by the prayers offered and said for others here in the prayer area....so much love to be found. I really do appreciate all the hard work done by all the ministry staff here ( Chat Admins, Board Admins, Watchmen, and Platinum) ....they do sooooo much behind the scenes..not just moderating but in personal one on one ministering, listening and doing all they can to try to serve the Lord here. It's a tough job, mentally draining sometimes....and it's all volunteer work...( free ). That being said...and being one of those blessed to ask to serve here....

  I have something to ask of everyone here at Worthy. I know we truly believe what we believe....and we so want to help others, teach others, reach out to others....that it can get pretty heated in the discussions here. I am OK with that...it's passion for what we believe....and if I did not see that here, I would probably not have stuck around so long. I just ask......please, please, speak to each other with kindness, compassion and LOVE for one another. Sometimes it seems that we are so focused on speaking the truth to others, that we forget how we need to DELIVER that truth. The very second we say something in truth but with no love and kindness in our words...we shut the door. Yes, we do...it's sad but true and sadly enough it's not rare. When we speak the truth, and are absolutely right....if we go about it the wrong way, we are still wrong. So that love that Christ asks us to have for one another, I think....should be on our hearts and minds as we post.

  Now....also, if we speak with just love and blur the truth to not hurt feelings, or make someone feel better....we are wrong there as well. We cannot withhold the truth...and just speak love and kind words, I think we all know where that can lead. When that person gets the truth after going a while being told something different...it can be spiritually a slap in the face, confusing and damaging to them. I know we don't want either of these types of things to happen....so we have to walk that thin line, between Love and Truth....the truth strong enough to stand, and show the way...and the love to open the hearts and be let in. We have time here, on the boards and even in chat, to slow down a minute and think about what we say, before we say it. So, let us do that....even when the other person is not doing that. Let it go, forgive and be the light or truth and love that Christ so wants from us.

 

Anyway Worthy Peoples! I love you all, I love seeing the Holy Spirit speak thru others here....I love the fellowship here....I just want to see God's Holy Holy Holy Word.....cherished and spread here in a way that truly edifies Christ Our Savior!

 

God Bless,

 Hip

 

Matthew  22:36  Master, which is the great commandment in the law?
Matthew  22:37  Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
Matthew  22:38  This is the first and great commandment.
Matthew  22:39  And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
Matthew  22:40  On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

      Happy Fathers Day ,my Brother .......God Bless you & your family & of course,praise the Lord!

Hippie,no truer words could be spoken in your OP & it is a wonderful reminder that at all times we MUST think of Who it is we are representing!I set a few simple guidelines for myself & it has helped me on many occasions.....Above all,I pray & ask that I be Gods vessel & for His help to continue to walk in spirit & in truth but this is not ALWAYS the case......there are days I simply cannot seem to get it together & I am bound by my flesh,I am sure everyone goes through these times......those are the times I refrain from posting at all.....lol

      Well,how about those days we are simply not exactly "prayed up" enough but would like t fellowship & interact with our Worthy Family?That is when I remember those guidelines .....

1-Am I walking in spirit & in truth today?Can I follow the Fathers lead?   I have to ask myself  what condition is my spirit in,,,,,,,,,& know

2-If I am offended,insulted or annoyed,,,,,,I am in the flesh & need not respond

3-Is what I am about to say going to edify,encourage,bring peace,love or joy to anyone?What is my response going to do,anything good?

4-Do I have the experience or knowledge to minister to someone or answer their question

5-Can I voice my opinion ,though it is contrary to others with kindness & gentleness  

6-Am I trying to prove my point or what I believe to be Gods Truth?

I cannot help what anyone else says but I try to remember that I am always accountable for what I say..........

 

I ask myself these things before I begin my day at Worthy,& in all things give God the Glory............

                                                                                                                                          With love-in Christ,Kwik

Yes, it often gets to a personal level here.  I always try to get in between and pacify with limited success.  I have noted some peripheral subjects cause such fierce emotions that the main Focus of this site is obscured: Christ Himself.   It is though these issues, albeit important, such as evolution and creation take a front seat to the main thing.  And it's all about reaching others with the Gospel.

We have a loving Heavenly Father, Who has set the Truth. And that Truth is Jesus Christ. Then we have our own limited understanding, yet sometimes are also revealed the grace of Him. Our experience however, is like a drop in a shoreless sea. It is of substance of course, but never matches with the Absolute.

 

We care for others to find the Truth in Christ. Care even more for them (AND ourselves!) to find also the love in Christ.

 

To perceive what God is up to in another person, and build on that; superb. Kind of doing the Will of God then.

 

What do we lose for sharing some kindness and compassion? And what do we receive then? Surely, we receive more of Him in whom we by so doing abide. And He abides in us. That's the way it goes. Because that's the way He goes. In love and truth. Not to forget the former, neither the latter.

when my wife said I was going crazy I replied 'bye bye'. At times I wonder would I really want to be sane according to the parameters of this world, though.

 

But wait, isn't it only biblical to be crazy?

 

1. Cor. 1:18 For the story and message of the cross is sheer absurdity and folly to those who are perishing and on their way to perdition, but to us who are being saved it is the [manifestation of] the power of God.

19 For it is written, I will baffle and render useless and destroy the learning of the learned and the philosophy of the philosophers and the cleverness of the clever and the discernment of the discerning; I will frustrate and nullify [them] and bring [them] to nothing.

20 Where is the wise man (the philosopher)? Where is the scribe (the scholar)? Where is the investigator (the logician, the debater) of this present time and age? Has not God shown up the nonsense and the folly of this world’s wisdom?

 

And all because of love that overcomes everything. Lest we forget.
