God's love in Jesus

A Complex Cosmos A Complex Cosmos

In tears it came to me how it is moment by moment that we are honoring the Christ, - or rejecting him!

I'll be the first to admit that I have felt prayer to leave me hangin'. The Scriptures make it clear that when we do, we too can be fully forgiven. We are not to think of self-denial as a self-deprecating and self-punishing means of discipline, but rather a means to a greater end, one that we would actually want more than anything. As one pastor put it: "Perception is more damaging than reality". Is God trying to tell me something?

In fact, since education consists essentially in preparing man for what he must be, and for what he must do here below, in order to obtain the sublime end for which he was created, it is clear that there can be no true education which is not wholly directed to man's last end, and that in the present order of Providence, since God has revealed Himself to us in the Person of His Only Begotten Son, who alone is 'the way, the truth and the life, ' there can be ideally no flawless education which is not Christian education. We can't think with our feelings. I've never given God much thought.

As he hung on the cross, Jesus prayed, "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do". "Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin". They would have no idea who you were and you would have very little chance of sharing from your heart with them.

This is true for you too- whatever titles you cling to, whatever accomplishments you proudly proclaim, know that in Jesus, you, too, are a son or daughter of the Father who loves you wildly just because you are.

Among the many evidences of God's grace, consider just these three that demonstrate the wonders of redemption. However, I think there is something more important than how we see ourselves and that's how we see the Lord. I mention this because you may have had it in your mind backwards as well.

Referee Steinhaus promoted as 1st women in Bundesliga
The German Football Association ( DFB ) hopes the announcement will encourage more females to become referees. Bibiana #Steinhaus pfeift in der kommenden Saison in der #Bundesliga : "Ein Traum wird wahr".

"In the book, I talk about coming to know Jesus at a church of England Sunday School when I was seven, and when I was fourteen after much suffering in my childhood, one night after a nightmare I was a wake for a while and I had a vision and an encounter with the mother of Jesus, which was so awesome", Hughes explains. We should let these words of Pope Pius XI call us on to greatness. "But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God" (1st Cor 6:11). God hears and acts on our words.

Third, he tells us to hope for a greater life beyond this world, a life he promised to share with us if we believe in him and follow his teachings. "If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?"

The Lord is ready for us to grow.

We press forward to the prize that is before us.

If you would like to develop that good relationship with your Creator, God has made it possible through Jesus Christ. The same is true for children who are born directly into a family as well - we are sons and daughters from the very beginning, even when we have done nothing to earn it or deserve it.

We're all beggars for something. Because He denied Himself and obeyed God's will for Him to die on the cross for our sake, we are saved. A love that gets messy with washing dirty feet. When one patiently and sincerely seeks to do His will, God will show one how to correct the wrong, how to make things right. He'll accept you as you are. Jesus Christ allows us to come boldly to the throne of the Lord.
