“Love means loving the unlovable – or it has no virtue at all.”
– G.K. Chesterton
We want EVERYONE to love us, but KNOW they won’t…
In fact, some we love the most will HATE us!
come on, let’s talk about this in the comments…
I was asked, recently, what was the #1 thing that I’m trying to instill in our teens & young adults at //Spyn Student Outreach. Without hesitation, I said, God’s Word! I’m trying to deliberately pour deep truths into every heart EVERY time we’re together. Then, even IF the teen seems to not be responsive, I’m assured that God’s Word will DO IT’S THING! It keeps working, like water, soaking in & going deeper!
Have you ever opened your Bible right in the middle? Almost every time, it will be some part of Psalm 119. This amazing chapter (longest in the Bible) has one overwhelming theme: GOD’S WORD!
As the chapter begins, we are greeted by two familiar verses, “How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word… I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you” (v. 9,11).
Here’s a fact: In order to live for God, to serve God, and to know God – I MUST spend time with the Word of God. More and more time. I want to invite you to take a deeper look at this amazing psalm. Here’s some things to assist your study: Read more
Ok, so I’m really trying to make my blog fun, creative and relevant to you (my friends & readers). So, I’m going to attempt to make my Thursdays super interactive. We all need places where we can rant or be totally random! I’ll host and entertain the chaos each Thursday! Fun, right?!
For “ThrowDown Thursdays” I want to make it wide open to your questions, topics or ideas and then I’ll do my best to respond! This means I need YOUR help!
So, in the comments, ask a question, request a topic or post something else totally random.
I’ll be checking the comments throughout the day and respond as quickly as possible! Cool??
Ok, now it’s your turn:
Truth is powerful. Truth is Jesus!
I’ve found myself making choices in behavior, attitude and thought that directly relate to a renewed relationship with Jesus (truth) and His Word. IF I’m not improving, then I’m proving that I’m lazy, lying or lost. Freedom is a gift not a right, it comes through Christ not charisma.
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free … So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:32, 36
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6
Here’s a few quotes about TRUTH from my journal:
Are you living in a shade of Grey? Move to Truth & experience God in ways you have yet to have embraced. Truth cannot be stopped – so, be sure you’re living on the side of LIGHT!
A man can no more diminish God’s glory (truth) by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell. ~ C. S. Lewis
Did any of the quotes (above) jump out to you? Talk about it in the comments!
And, answer this: How is TRUTH impacting your life?
