Mankind, You Are Loved

Think of God and what picture comes to mind? An old man with a long beard  and wild hair? Perhaps God sits on a throne, His expression angry with fiery eyes, and, for good measure He’s holding a bolt of lightning, ready to knock someone dead and send them to hell. I think not!

The Word of God, (the Bible), has many Scriptures revealing the true nature of God, and unlike many people may think, He is not angry and vengeful. God IS love.

Jesus gave Himself as a living sacrifice for all mankind and died on the Cross, paying the ultimate price for all of our sins. A sinless Man Himself, He took our punishment for us. And, since He rose again from the dead, Father God is able to look at us all and, through Jesus, have a loving, intimate relationship with us, His children.

Jesus Is The Only Way To Salvation

Originally posted on October 11, 2012

Salvation, or, being “saved” does not happen simply because you go to church, or read the Bible, or even pray. Believing in God does not mean that your salvation is a done deal either.

In John 14:6 Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” A loving, personal and intimate relationship with Jesus is essential in order to ensure your place in heaven, with God, for eternity.

Faith – A Poem From My Book, “GOD Is Not A Stuffed Shirt”

Dear PaPa,

Father, I know that there is so much more to faith than simply believing in You. Faith, that we are loved. Faith, that we are provided for.

Faith, that health is possibly maintained by attitude and prayer. Faith, that You want us financially secure and so much more. Faith, that we can grace the world with Your love and make it a better place.

Faith, that Jesus’ life was an orchestrated dance between Him and Father God in heaven. That He is our Lord of Lords and King of Kings.

Faith, that Jesus died on the cross after living a sinless life, despite all temptations. Faith, that the Father raised His Son from the dead after three days.

Faith, that Jesus continued His ministry on earth for a while after He was resurrected, until finally He rose into heaven to sit at His Father’s right hand.

Faith, that Jesus forgave our sinful lives, and Faith, that when He died on the cross He bequeathed to us His unconditional love, His mercy, forgiveness, grace, and redemption.

Faith, that He left to us His power to heal and cast out demons. Faith, that even now He provides for us with prayer and our daily bread.

Faith, that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and that it’s through Him only that we are united with our Father in Heaven – eternally.
