Preach love. The God kind of love. People will know who you are by your love for one another. It takes a great amount of love to forgive someone that killed your wife. Don’t use this tragedy as an excuse to walk away from the faith. Let it fortify you. Stop running away from opportunities to share your faith. Something occurred in his life that allowed him to build up and lean on his faith. No matter who comes into power the Lord will always be there.
So now, we can tell who are children of God and who are children of the devil. Anyone who does not live righteously and does not love other believers[a] does not belong to God.- I John 3:10
God preaches family because we’re all in this together. We’re related. That stranger that you see on the street is part of the human family. Let the Lord who is the judge do his job in judgement not you. You love.People choose not to practice the Christian faith because it doesn't compromise. They don’t want to read the rest of the way. How do you know if someone is in the faith? You will know this, by their love. For their life will produce good fruits of love and righteousness.
O Lord, you are so good, so ready to forgive, so full of unfailing love for all who ask for your help. -Psalm 86:5 (NLT)
This is the hardest part that you have to do as a Christian (forgiveness).
For thou lord art good. Ready to forgive and plentius in mercy…. 99.9% chance that God will forgive . When it’s your time, no matter how hard it is, you will need to forgive. It’s a barrier that you have to work through. If there is something that you’re holding on to, let it go. He will forgive you if you believe in his son and live the life.
The Lord passed in front of Moses, calling out,“Yahweh!The Lord!The God of compassion and mercy! I am slow to anger and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness. - Exodus 34:6
And the lord passed by before him, mercifiul and gracious, longsuffering, abundance in goodness and truth. This should be our character. So to anger. He wants to get that hate out of you. But you are a God of forgiveness, gracious and merciful, slow to become angry, and rich in unfailing love. You did not abandon them - Nehemiah 9:17 (NLT)
They refused to listen……but you are slow to anger abounding in love. Things happen in seasons. Be mindful of these things do what you’re supposed to do. Just come on home like the prodigal son
But you, O Lord, are a God of compassion and mercy, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love and faithfulness - Psalm 86:15
The Lord is trying to let you know of an example. I want you to be compassionate and gracious, slow to anger. Let go of anything that is weighing on you. Love. Some hate so much but no one knows the source or reason any more. No one remembers why. You should love. Because he first loved us. And he commands us to love one another.
Don’t be afraid, for I am with you. Don’t be discouraged, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you. I will hold you up with my victorious right hand - Isaiah 41:10
I will hold you up with my victorious right hand. Don’t be afraid for I am with you. I will pick you up. Don’t be afraid. I will be your rock. I will be your support. Don’t hold whatever grudge is in you so the Holy Spirit can work through you.
What things shall we say in response to these things, If God is for us who can be against us. (Sit back and stand on faith)
That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?27 Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?
28 “And why worry about your clothing? Look at the lilies of the field and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, 29 yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. 30 And if God cares so wonderfully for wildflowers that are here today and thrown into the fire tomorrow, he will certainly care for you. Why do you have so little faith?
31 “So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ 32 These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. 33 Seek the Kingdom of God[a] above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
34 “So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.
