Realized that I had become so impatient and negative about LIFE and everything and everyone involved in my life.
Spending some time in quietness and prayer.
Working harder at practicing the old adage - "If you can't say something nice about someone (or something) say nothing at all".
It's hard for me to just shut up!
Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a talker!!!
Thinking about learning to live The Love Dare towards God --
*I do not deserve the love of God, nor the friendship of God ... yet, it's not about ME.
It is all about GOD! And although I do not deserve it, God desires it!
What a great and mighty God we serve! Awesome in every way. Yet, God is lonely. Desiring fellowship and friendship with US.
*Why should we practice The Love Dare to God?
Aren't we as Christians called to the BRIDE of Christ?
And wasn't The Love Dare written to help in the marriage
*How do we practice The Love Dare to God?
Jesus said that if we do anything to "the least of these" we have done it UNTO GOD. Matthew 25:31-46.
Galatians 2:20 says, "I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."
Do I believe this? If so, then - whatever I say or do to others I am doing UNTO CHRIST, if they proclaim to be Christians. Because they too no longer live, it is Christ who lives in them! And if they don't proclaim to be Christians? Well, I am.
And it is no longer I who lives, but Christ who lives in me - so how would Jesus treat them???
Colossians 3:17 -
"And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the Name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him."
