Here’s a verse for you and a word of encouragement!

“In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.” – Proverbs 16:9

Amen! You might be planning ahead for something right now, it may be your college course, it may be your job, your new house, your school, relationships… but don’t worry- if it is the Lord’s will, who could go against you? Just have faith, do the next right thing, and God will direct your path. Don’t be afraid, God, king of all kings, is with you!

Story Of The Paper -Mary Pacis

I am being torn from my home,

And all thats within me.

Torn into pieces….

Diminished.

I was innocent and pure,

But now am written with words so vulgar,

Words of hatred.

I feel so alone…

crumpled…

thrown…

My world is shaking.

WAIT- It is not.

I am being lifted!

By whom?

Who is this man?

All the pain,

Erased.

All my sins,

Forgotten.

I am brought anew!

Rejoice! Rejoice!

But my question remains,

Who is this man?

He takes a pen and writes.

I Am…

The Son of God and The Son of Man.

I Am,

The Great provider,

The Bread of Life.

I Am,

The Living water,

The Defender of the weak.

I Am,

The Light of the world,

and The Fishers of Men.

The Prince of Life, 

The Conqueror of death,

Restorer of Faith,

and The Uplifted Savior…

I Am JESUS.

He wrote,

But being myself, I did not believe.

This man?

Blasphemy!

If He could make me fly, then I would believe.

WAIT! 

What is He doing?

He’s throwing me?

NO! 

Have mercy on me!

I have done no wrong!

Then He said unto me

“Do not 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.”

Then…

I flew.

Bible Verse of the Week. (Accepting Others)

Roman 15:7

Therefore, accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory.

——————————-

There are many Christians who always want to win a fight. They share the word of God but without LOVE and UNDERSTANDING. We have to understand that they will not LISTEN to you, unless they know that you CARE. You have to earn their TRUST, ACCEPT them, understand them. It is not about winning an argument. We do not want to win an argument, we want to WIN THE SOUL. We want to GET THE MESSAGE ACROSS, but not to make enemies.

We need to have COMPASSION. We have to be WHERE THE PEOPLE ARE. Don’t be afraid to go to the President and think he’ll win because of his knowledge. Philosophers always win, but they are SPIRITUALLY BLIND. Don’t choose whom you share with. We should share the word of God WHENEVER, WHEREVER and to WHOMSOEVER.

“People are always INTERESTING, whatever they are, what they do, they have a story to tell.”

1. Ethos- Reflect Jesus. (You have to Live It Out)

2. Pathos- Root of sympathy and empathy. (You have to show that you care and understand.)

3. Logos- The WORD. The content of what you’re saying. (Before you can share, you have to read the bible, know the word…)

Now, LETS SHARE THE GOSPEL! AMEN!

Mark 16:15-16 

And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.

BUT…

 

“Before you can share the word of God, you have to LIVE IT OUT and KNOW THE WORD.”
