Beatitudes and Suffering

The key in all of this is that the righteous (blood bought disciples of Jesus Christ) will suffer at the hands of people who are fully vested in this life; whereas we should strive to be fully commited to Jesus Christ.

Godly Men

I think there are a great number of shortfalls in the characters of American men. But first I’m going to try to define what a Godly man should look like. And I’m going to be honest and not use myself as an example.

Agape’ Love

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.

Put On Charity

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. 

Praying for Unity

I benefited from the unity I experienced by literally seeing the Holy Spirit working among His saints. I also believe the Holy Spirit has given me a heart for “church” unity. Now I know about the glory Jesus has in Heaven, but I’m not as comfortable with His glory here on earth.
