Day 19 Start with Love Part 2

Start With Love part 2


 The last 2 days have been about loving Jesus and being obedient. Yesterday the private group focused on “why I love Jesus”. One member said it’s like the song says “because he first loved me”. We are heading into the hardest part of the matter which is loving others. I’m not talking about just loving the people who love you. I mean loving the people who you know don’t like you or have your best interest in mind. You might ask why do we have to do that. Firstly, is it necessary to have that loving attitude and mindset because it drives your actions and your choices. Luke 6:27-36 “But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you. If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners love those who love them. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even sinners do that. And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even sinners lend to sinners, expecting to be repaid in full. But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be children of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful”. That is a message and a lesson all in itself. A true test of a developed mind and spiritual maturity is the ability to do as the word says. Immaturity in this area hinders us from making mature choices. The recipe for success as Dr. John Maxwell writes are “ good decisions and discipline. One can not exist without the other”. Enlarge your love capacity and be disciplined enough to let that show in your actions and choices.

Day 16 Fighting the unbelief

Fighting the unbelief
Day 13 was spent on reflecting on the days past and for my private group we focused on guided meditation and channeling our energy on the vision. It was an awesome two days. There are a couple of  people who asked about unbelief. Let's examine it together. I like to ask people who express some unbelief whether verbally or through their actions this question. What do you believe? We spend a lifetime fueling unbelief. Mark 9:24 " help my unbelief". God is not interested in the magnitude of your belief. He is looking for even the smallest traces of evidence of it. Matthew 17:20 If you have the faith of a mustard seed, you can say to a mountain move and it will move. When I ask what do you believe in, I'm really asking what have you placed your faith in. Is it your spouse, your children, your job, your friends, or your church. Before you hurry and answer no let me define faith. According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary  faith is an allegiance to …
