Unity & Love

divided-kingdom_ropeWith so many denominations, so many do’s and don’ts, and so many that believe you must wear this or that…it is important to understand the Bible and forego man-made legalism.

Now I know this is a touchy topic, however legalism has become rampant in today’s churches and is turning away those who need Jesus the most. We are to love our brothers and sisters in Christ, not argue and fight with one another because you do this or I do that.

Mark 3:24 “If a kingdom is divided against itself, it cannot stand.”

For all of us who love Christ, believe that the Bible is the final Word, and that Jesus came to give us life and life more abundantly; than it is of the utmost importance for each of us to be the salt and light of this world. It’s not about what you wear, what you eat, when you pray, what you pray…it is about a deep-loving relationship with our Heavenly Father and accepting Jesus’ ultimate sacrifice to give us the opportunity of being grafted into His amazing love.

We may agree to disagree on some things, but the fundamental root of all Christianity is what’s most important…JESUS! Don’t let the pettiness of man-made legalism hinder people the chance of coming to Christ. God is able to modify anything about a person that HE deems necessary. Let those around you see love and not gossip, truth and not legalism, a helping hand and not a beating down. God is love and for all of us who want to make a difference in these last days, let that LOVE shine through all that you do and welcome those that look different or do different things than you.

This week I’m sharing a funny and remarkable teaching from New Beginnings Church in Texas. Pastor Larry does a fantastic job discussing this very topic and it gives me great pleasure to share it with you. Let Pastor Larry’s sermon enlighten, bolden, and give you the tools you need in order to shine brightly this season. Don’t let church legalism stand in your way any longer. Become who you need to be and become God’s great warrior, loving all those whom you come in contact with. The sermon can be found at https://larryhuchministries.com/archive. It is the Sunday First Service March 5, 2017 Service

Make a difference today and let your love shine!

When You Feel Weak…

Ever find yourself burnt out, stressed out and just not sure what is happening in your life? Ever felt like the weight of the world is upon your shoulders and you have no clue what to do?

There are times that it seems like we hit every brick wall imaginable. There are times that seem like nothing is going right and we become so worried, stressed and plain ol’ worn out. We tend to try and fix things ourselves, just to realize that nothing is working.

The one thing we can always be certain of is that God can be mysterious and unpredictable. We don’t always understand why things are taking so long or why things don’t seem to be going our way – it drains the very strength and life out of us. Making us feel weak, clueless and insecure along the way.

BUT THE GOOD NEWS IS…

GOD SHINES THE GREATEST WHEN WE ARE AT OUR WEAKEST!

II Corinthians 12:9:  “But He said to me, My grace is enough for you; for My strength and power are made perfect and show themselves most effective in your weakness. Therefore, I will all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the strength and power of Christ may rest upon me!

When we feel like we don’t have the strength to go on and we want to give up; the best thing we can do is:  STOP – DROP – AND THANK

Fall to your knees and tell God that you can’t do it! Tell Him you can’t go on! Tell Him that you don’t have any more strength! In other words, TELL HIM EVERYTHING that has you overwhelmed. Let Him know everything that seems to be defeating you. God is not surprised but what you say. It’s alright to let Him know your frustrations, your heartache, your depression or addictions. He already knows so you don’t have to feel guilty or worried about telling Him all about your worries or concerns. He cares so much about you. Heck, He’s crazy about you. So tell Him everything!

God knows what is best.  He knows the perfect timing for the amazing “thing” to happen in your life; catapulting you to greater heights.  His best is far beyond what we ever can imagine for ourselves.  Let Him raise you up and strengthen you – FOR HE IS GOD AND NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR HIM!

Please remember that once you’ve gotten everything off your chest, so to speak…please don’t forget to THANK HIM FOR HIS ANSWERS! God is not a respecter of persons, He will never forget about you, nor will He ever disappoint you. So now just let it all go and rest in Him! Your answers and restoration are on the way!
