“LOVE…Thinks no evil”Waves of grain-mercy
1 Corinthians 13:5
   LET IT REST!
    Ah!  How many hearts on the brink of anxiety and disquietude, by this simple sentence have been made calm and happy!
    Some proceeding has wounded us by its lack of tact; let it rest; no one will think of it again.
    A harsh or unjust sentence irritates us; let it rest; whoever may have given vent to it will be pleased to see it forgiven and forgotten.
    A painful scandal is about to estrange us from an old friend; let it rest, and thus preserve our love and peace of mind.
    A suspicious look is on the point of cooling our affection; let it rest; our look of trust will restore confidence.
    Imagine!  we, who are so careful to remove the briars from our pathway for fear they should wound, yet collect and pierce our hearts with thorns that meet us in our daily intercourse with one another!  How childish and unreasonable we often are!
    Taken from Springs in the Valley

So stop hurting yourself, in Jesus name.

God_Loves_You   Lord make my heart a haven

where the lonely may find friendship,

where the weary find shelter,

where the helpless may find refuge,

where the hopeless may find hope,

where all those who seek someone who cares may enter…

and find You.

Which God is easier to trust…one who loses most of those He created into an eternal incinerator? Or one who redeems, restores, reconciles, saves all mankind? It’s not complicated. Why is it so difficult for Christians to understands? “You have made the simple word of God of no effect in your lives by your traditions.” Gary Amirault

Jesus Crucified

Christ Crucified with glory

Today is Christmas Day. During the month of December, I have eaten too many cookies and candies given to me by Christians. I have seen too many guilt bearing commercials making me feel like I have to buy a ton of merchandise to fulfill my duties of being an American citizen. I live in the heart of America. Our town, Hermann, is Christian to the core, our halls decked, our streets covered with red and green. Shops are loaded with Christmas decorations to sell. But during the whole month of December, not a single Christian told me about the purpose of all the activity. Not a single Christian during this season presented me with the Gospel, the Good News.

Why is that? Well, honestly, I believe it is because their “gospel” is such bad news that they are ashamed of it. Cookies and spiked eggnog is better than their gospel. Those in town who know I believe Jesus is the savior of the whole world, not just part of it, are surprised I do so much evangelizing. Why preach Christ crucified if everyone is going to be saved anyway, they ask. Well, here are a few reasons why I preach the Victorious Gospel of Jesus Christ, whenever I can. My hope is that it will in some way nullify the damage the traditional gospel is bringing to this world. Charlie Slagle said it best in His book (available on this site) “Absolute Assurance in Jesus Christ.” In His book, revealing the four primary views of salvation found in the Christ, writes:

What, then, is the point of sharing this radically Good News about God? The point is, until we have a heart and mind understanding of God’s true character and agenda: Read the rest of this entry »
