How do we show love to others that lets them know we are Christians.

This has been a question that many have asked others.

Let me share the story of Paul. He hated Christians/Jews. He persecuted the Jews, and put some to death. He even held the coats of the men who stoned Stephen to death.

He was walking to Damascus, which is still part of Syria today, and met Jesus. Jesus said, “Saul, Saul, Why do your persecute me?” Saul was then named Paul, before the LORD changed it.

Paul was awe stuck, and fell to the ground. He turned his life over to the LORD right on the spot, and he then went all around the country telling others about Jesus . He shared the need to spread love to everyone.

Why this long story? You and I don’t need to walk on the road to Damascus to know that we can share love with others by sharing our faith like Paul did. We can talk about how The Lord open our hearts and minds to Him, and how that changed our lives.

It doesn’t take a person who is highly educated to share the gospel, or tell stories about their own lives. It just take a person who loves others enough to be concerned for their souls.

Remember:

You are never alone.

You are never forsaken,

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!

Woudn’t it be Great if we Could See the Future?

Thoughts just for you…

I had the privilege to be at the birth of a new nephew last night. He is 8# and 8 oz. He let everyone know he is around right away. He yelled at us for a long time. 🙂

Birth of a new child, for anyone, is a blessed event. It shares a new beginning. It gives us hope of a bright future for the little one.

Can we be assured that Braden will have a bright future. There is turmoil in our world today. We have many people threatened, or even killed in places like Syria.

The economy is flat, and there doesn’t seem to be a change in the horizon. People are out of jobs, out of health insurance, and out of mind.

How can we be assured of a bright future for anyone with all this happening around us?

If we truly believe in God, we know we have a bright future. He is in control. Yes, it seems He is allowing the bad guys to rule right now, but God never makes mistakes. He knows the final chapter of the book He is writing. The outcome is already written down.

It would be great if we could do like some people do while reading books. They sneak a peak at the ending of the book to see what happens. 

We can’t, but we know that God will conquer all the evil, and send His only Son down to earth to rule again. That is the bright future we can promise for little Braden. He will know that he is safe in the arms of our heavenly Father.

Remember:

You are not alone.

You are not forsaken.

You are not unloved.

Above all..never, ever, give up!
