gospel truth again... the begining of it all.

"for God so loved the world that he gave his only son
so that everyone who beleives
will not perish BUT have eternal life."
the following verse of the above scripture{john 3:16} says Jesus did NOT come to condemn the world but to save it.
the truth is it hurts me; it hurts me when i see people NOT regard God; it hurts me when EVEN I do NOT regard him as i should. what more do we want? HE loves us so much he "gave up" the one important person/being in his life and world. he made him who KNEW NO sin know sin that we may be saved.
CHRIST CAME AND DIEDTHAT WE MAY LIVE AND REGIN {not just in heaven but here on earth.}
in class a lecturer wanted to show a 'film clip' on TV but before he did he asked if there were christians were in this class becos will be offensive to them.... out of over twenty people THREE rose up their hands? out of those three people GOD knows those that are realy HIS; those in a relationship and not in a religion.
where hs the love gone?
i read some one's blog {by accident} where the person said and i quote "Swing.life is to short."
that rubbed me the 'wrong way'; whatever 'swing' means is up in the air but all i know is it did not sound right... it sounded like that misguided and ignorant thing people say to excuse their'wrong' actions "you only live once!"
we live in ageneration that has forgotten its God. i do not want people to be suprised come judgement day.... but some are bent on being suprised.
jesus knocks on the door of each heart... who will open? who will let him in? who will not laugh at his love but will rather acept and trust it.
when it comes to this God i do get very touchy; it breaks my heart when i see people 'not care' why? do they not know HOW much he loves them, what he gave up for them.... why will they treat him or speak of him iwthout revere, respect with a lack of apppreciation!!
i do not get it at all!!
so i thought remind them... for those who have forgotton; tell them... for those who have NOT heard,
GOD LOVES YOU, WANTS YOU. YOU NEED HIM
FOR THERE IS NO HOPE, NO LIFE OUTSIDE OF HIM
HIS ARMS ARE OPEN NOT TO CONDEMN
BUT TO SAVE.
MY GOD IS MIGHTY TO SAVE INDEED
NO MATTER WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE HAVE DONE
WHERE WE HAVE BEEN
HE IS READY
TO LOVE YOU
GUIDE YOU
TEACH YOU
BUILD YOU
PURIFY YOU
MAKE YOU
FOR HOW LONG WILL YOU WANDER OUTSIDE THE GATES
THE DOOR TO HIM IS OPEN AND YOU
YOU ARE WELCOME.
give your ALL to jesus... you wont regret it; believe me i know.
keeping it real. his peace. chichi

A strong reminder, sometimes we need to go back to the beginning and reignite the fire that once burned within. This word is so true because sometimes it's so easy to try and blend in that we lose our 'saltiness' and our light. Thanks for this, u r blessed o! Have a wonderful weekend

My God is MIGHTY to save, my God is ready to PURIFY me...

It's sad when we don't catch this, this very deep message of love that we need to let grow in our hearts...Love, such that He let His only Son, Who was without sin, die on a cross for our sins...

*Sigh* (thanks)
