I do feel that all the ideas Christians have about people getting over their issues does not work if correcting emotions is not part of the process.
There is nothing more important in the life of a Christian or in the life of a church . But unfortunately a lot of time spent in prayer is not properly focused.
Agape’ love is selfless, sacrificial, unconditional love. It is the highest of the four types of love in the Bible. This Greek word, agápē, and variations of it are frequently found throughout the New Testament. Agape’ perfectly describes the kind of love Jesus Christ has for his Father and for His followers.
We cannot understand our present troubles until we trust in God and give our concerns up to God. Then we need to trust in God’s timetable and be ready to accept what He sends our way. If a person has made bad choices or been the victim of crime, there may indeed be consequences that may change their current circumstances permanently. Still we need to trust. Don’t abandon the ship before God gives a solution.
Charity can be equated to agape’ love. This kind of love is aid and comfort given to someone without qualification. Churches often fall short of this because as individuals they expect to receive appreciation. But that would be qualifying the nature of the recipient.
To say a church is Pro-Life doesn’t answer the question “what do they do”? is the congregation willing to sacrifice to get sinners on the right track in life?
What happened to wayocross you might ask. I had heart surgery for a leaking heart valve. That was the easy part. The recovery and rehab were the hardest. Also not helped by my attitude. If I felt better I’d finish this post – but I don’t feel better […]
“Who am I” is an elementary question everyone has to answer. But have you ever asked this question of yourself? Do you like who you see in the mirror?
The word “meek” implies a gentle and peaceful manner. A person who’s words of truth speak louder than the most boisterous person.
If the Holy Spirit is recognized in the church, then we are a part of His Kingdom. And the disciples lived to see this at Pentecost. God is intending us “to act” and not wait for the return of Jesus while neglecting to do His work in the here and now.
