In Romans 5:8 the Scripture declares, "But God is constantly proving His own love to us, because while we were yet sinners, Christ in behalf of us died".
I encourage every viewer, hearer, sinner or saint to be encouraged in this fact; it's not what you have done or have not done, to be worthy or unworthy of Gods love. No one is going to Heaven or Hell because of what they have done. But rather because they accepted or rejected God's Salvation through Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
God loves us all. Pimps, prostitutes, pastors, deacons, gays/lesbians, all races, drug addicts, rich and poor - all have fallen short of God's glory! Yet all have an opportunity to benefit in God's plan of Salvation through God's redemptive work, manifest in Jesus Christ as Lord. God has judged all flesh as sinful. Spiritual leaders should be taking the same prescriptions they are administering.
All have spiritually fallen and come short of the plan and purpose of God. The end results are the dysfunctions, confusions, chaos, hopelessness and death which we see every day, in the world as well as the church. Yet God loves his Creation so much that he sent Jesus to establish grace, mercy, love and power over sin and Satan and all these devastating results.
Through Jesus Christ, God saves our soul and restores us to fellowship with Him.
It is His Spirit that takes up residence in every believer, transforming them into friends of God; making peace between them and God, as well as leading them into life and it more abundantly. So be encouraged "Sinner" and remember "Saint", today is the day of Salvation.
Revival and Resurrection is ours through Jesus Christ if we believe in Him. Confess with your mouth the Lordship of Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead. Your Supervisor is now Jesus Christ, the merciful. He will now, today, begin reforming, rebuilding and restoring you to the person of purpose, honor, power, joy and love He created you to be.
A long journey of a thousand miles begins with one small step in the right direction. If you have accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, you have begun the journey of eternity. In the mean time; study the Bible, live your life by faith in the Word of God and the God of the word.
For assistance come grow with us:
"The Church, The Body of Christ".
Stay encouraged in Christ Jesus!

Oh what a wonderful and full life in which we live. We wake up with our "to do list" from the day before, half done, and another that is filling up for the current day. And yes, we sometimes even ponder the thought of the next day's list. We can not forget our meetings and appointments with important people. What a process that we subject ourselves to in a day's time.
The following questions must be asked:
Where is the recovery or restoration time?
When will it all end?
Will I ever get to the bottom of my " to do list"?
Am I actually making progress or am I just spinning my wheels?
Consider this, the Bible asks "who builds and does not consider the cost?" It further tells us that we are to acknowledge Him in all our ways and He will direct our path. God must be the main consideration in our day.
You might ask "HOW do I make Him my main consideration?" The answer is simple:
Allow His will to be implemented and set as a priority in our lives by loving Him with every portion of our being.
Love our neighbor as ourselves.
These two should always take up slots #1 and #2 on our list and everything else will fall into place.
Be Blessed. Be Encouraged. Be Godly.
