For Husbands Only

by

For Husbands Only –
And for the men who want to be –

If your wife committed a crime; would you do the time for her?
What if her crime was a capital offense?
What if her sentence was death?
Would you die for her?
What if the method of execution was crucifixion?
What would you do?
Meanwhile – Do you love your wife enough to live for her?\

 

What did Jesus do?
His bride was guilty.
He died for her.
The method of execution was crucifixion.
He died for her.
He not only died.
He died an excruciating death.
For her.
And now – He lives for her today.

Husband, love your wife as Christ loved the Church
And gave Himself for her.

Selfless Love

“I told you that I Am he,” Jesus said. “And since I am the one you want, let these others go.”

Needs and Pains

Needs and pains

We all have needs. We need to receive love and we need to give love. We need to be accepted and we need to give acceptance. We long to be known and we need to know. These are basic needs of all people.

What is the problem? The problem is fear. We fear that if we offer or give and it is not returned, we will be rejected. Rejection is too painful. So, we hide. It is easier to hide than to risk rejection. We can hide in many ways. We can hide in many places.

The hiding keeps us apart from other people. We only feel our own pain. We do not feel the pain of others. Our pain keeps our hearts from feeling the healing power of love. Only by feeling the pain of others can we acknowledge our own pain, can we release our own pain. That requires risk.

Risk. Feel the pain that others feel. Risk.
Do. Life. God’s. Way.
What can you lose? Abandon your pride and your ego and do life God’s way. Ego is the enemy. Your ego is the enemy. Your ego is your enemy.

Satan has told us lies. That is his only trick. He uses the same old trick over and over again. He is still telling us lies. Why do we listen? Why do we fall for the same old lies over and over again? He tells us we are nothing and we believe the lie.

It is time to stop believing the lies. God’s way works. Live, love, and forgive. Acknowledge your needs. Focus on others. Risk the rejection. God will still love you. He will meet your needs. He will meet you there.

When Will We Get It Right?

When Will We Get It Right?

God made life so simple and we cannot get it right!
“Love God and love each other” – that is the “law”.

Why can we not get it right?

 

Men submissive to Christ and obedient to Christ and His Word.
Women submissive to Christ and to their husbands.
It is so utterly simple and we cannot get it right.

 

One man and one woman marry for life and raise a family.
Raise children to be healthy and able to repeat the process
Live with love and joy and peace and harmony.
Why can we not get it right?

 

The believers in a geographic area are the Church.
Leaders to be servants of God to the people.
How simple can it be? Why can we not get it right?

 

When will we get it right?

God the Holy Spirit – 39

God the Holy Spirit – 39
The Holy Spirit of God is “a different Spirit”

“But My servant Caleb, because he has had a different Spirit and has followed Me fully, I will bring him into the land which he entered, and his descendants shall take possession of it.” Numbers 14:24

Do you have a different Spirit in you? Are you following God completely? Are you obedient to Him? Is His Spirit in you and directing you? Are you controlled by your own spirit and will or is the Spirit of God, a Spirit different from all other spirits, controlling you?

Have you entered the land of promise? Has God brought you into His land? Have you conquered the land? Are you and your children (biological and Spiritual children) taking possession of that land?

Only by having God’s Spirit, “a different Spirit” in you, will that happen.

Truth Makes Enemies

by

Truth Makes Enemies?

Galatians 4:16-19

Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth?
Those (other) people are zealous to win you over, but for no good.

What they want is to alienate you from us, so that you may have zeal for them.
It is fine to be zealous, provided the purpose is good, and to be so always, not just when I am with you.
My dear children, for whom I am again in the pains of childbirth until Christ is formed in you.

 

Do people hate you when you tell them the truth?
Do they accept impressive persons who use enthusiasm and lies to make them feel good about themselves and to separate you from them?

 
That is what happened to Apostle Paul. When he shared God’s truth with the Galatians, they preferred the lies and zeal of persons who made them feel good. Paul’s pain was so intense that he used the pain of childbirth to explain his feelings about this experience.

 
God is forming Christ is our lives. He tells us the truth about Himself and about our selves to do that.
Enthusiasm is good as long as it is zeal for God and truth. Otherwise, it is destructive because it makes wrong look right.
Those who reject truth are “enemies of the cross of Christ.” They are also your enemies. It is the cross that forms Christ in us.
Christ loves truth. Christ is Truth.

 
This passage never ceases to impress and amaze me. It is healing medicine. It pulls no punches. It dodges no truth. It will change your life.
It changed/changes mine.

Praise the Lord.
