He Chose Each Of Us!

John 15_14-16 image

Yahweh’s system of things, nothing is exceeding His gracious plan of redemption!

He loves us with an everlasting love (Jer. 31:3 And from far away the Lord appeared to his people and said, “I love you people with a love that will last forever. That is why I have continued showing you kindness.) and He drew us to Himself with cords kindness and ropes of love (Hos. 11:4 I led them with cords of human kindness, with ropes of love. I lifted the yoke from their neck and bent down and fed them.) He chose us.

And He chose each us for a purpose. Today’s scripture image shows that He has appointed each us to produce fruit and that our fruit will last. When we are obedient and aligned with Him, He will give us what we ask for. Nothing less will do.

Let’s live in the faith that Yahweh knew what He was doing when He chose us.

What’s your experience living in the faith that Yahweh chose you? Share, let’s chat!

Happy Home-Happy Life

There’s no really deep secret to having a happy home-happy life. It’s simply letting Jesus have first place in our hearts. Each day is a growing experience as we pull in closer to Him and to none other.

As Hosea so wisely recognized:

In two days He will put new life in us; on the third day He will raise us up so that we may live in His presence and know Him. Let’s try to learn about the Lord; He will come to us as surely as the dawn comes. He will come to us like rain, like the spring rain that waters the ground.” (Hosea 6:2-3).

How do we learn to love? We begin at the center of all love: Calvary. We need to know Yahweh because Yahweh “is” love. Agape Love.

What’s your experience with Agape Love? Comment, let’s chat.

Me: My experience with Agape Love; when I was at my lowest, Yahweh carried me and brought me out of the fire. He is the Victory!

A New Command: Love One Another

John 13_34-35 image

When we’ve been misunderstood and abused, we become more understanding toward those unfortunates of our world who grieve under the heels of cruelty and darkness. We identify with their suffering and can surely “weep with those that weep.” Our hearts grow a tenderness and compassion which will help to improve our relationships and nourish our souls.

Sure, it hurts and causes feelings of indignation when we are hurt. Nevertheless, we are not to take vengeance. Yahweh commands us to live by a new command of life: the law of love, that accepts misunderstanding and abuse and answers to them with tenderness.

Love as Yahweh loves us. The only way to do that is through the Holy Spirit. We’re unable to do it on our own. It requires something that we are incapable of, alone.

By this, all will know we are His disciples; because we love one other.

Allow the Holy Spirit in. Allow Him to soften our hearts; loving those unfortunate ones we relate to because we’ve already been there.

I like the quote:

“Be kind! For everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about.”

Even though you don’t know their battle, you can still relate in some way.

Transforming Grace of Yahweh

2 Timothy 1_8-10 image

It’s grace solely that has the capability to transform lives. Grace solely has the power to bring liberty to the captives. By grace solely, we are saved.

Yahweh has a plan and purpose for your life that He’s given to no one else. Your life is intended to make an eternal result for His Kingdom that will rule for all time.

First purpose: Loving Yahweh is your highest calling, and in loving Yahweh you will experience the overflowing joy and fulfillment possible.

The second purpose: loving others in reply to your love for Yahweh. (Mark 12:31, Ephesians 5:1-2, Acts 26:16).

We are commanded to genuinely love Him and others with the very love we’ve been given.

He fills you with the breath of life and then untiringly waits for you to live your life as an exquisite song of worship and praise to Him.

How’s that working for you? Share how your purpose is affecting Yahweh’s Kingdom. Let’s worship and praise Him together, as the Body of Christ.

Fruitfully Clothed

Colossians 3_12 image

We all remember the schoolyard games when we were primary school age. There were two teams. There were two captains. The captains drew straws to see who chose a team member first. We all stood there waiting to be chosen. Nobody likes to be last. There is always one or two people that are clumsy and awkward. They aren’t good with sports. They just want to be part of something. They get chosen at the very last because, well, they’re the only choice left. It happens to all of us at some point. Sometime’s even as adults.

In an Eternal sense, Yahweh has chosen you because he knows you are a good fit for His team (so to speak). There are no bad, awkward and clumsy in His eyes. He loves each of us very much and we each have a duty to fulfill in His purpose.

On Yahweh’s {team}, you need to be dressed in mercy, kindness, gentleness, and patience. Some of the fruits of the Spirit. When you have these, the rest falls into place. Yahweh’s peace, mercy, kindness, gentleness, and patience is the rules. When we follow them we show and do good to those around us. This makes life more pleasant around us. And it’s Yahweh working through us. He’s our ultimate team captain.

What does that look like for you? Comment and bless others as you bless yourselves.
