Jesus says in John 4:23-24, "But the hour is coming, and now is, when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is a spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth."



Calming effects of living in the light

Tuesday, April 24, 2012


    "Jesus said; I am the LIGHT of the world: he that  followeth me shall not walk in DARKNESS, but shall have the LIGHT of life . " ( John 8:12)   As we all know Jesus walked as a true messenger of God word. He walked as a prophet , teacher, and miracle worker. But Jesus was far more than just a teacher, a prophet, or a miracle worker. He was and always will be the LIGHT of God.

    What is the LIGHT?  It is simple, The LIGHT is Gods every lasting, unconditional LOVE!

God is Love! ( l John 4:16) This scripture does not say that God has the ability to love  it says that GOD IS LOVE. LOVE is the very foundation of Gods true Nature, it flows from Him life a river and brings life to what ever it touches.


    If we look closely  at the world we live in, we can see the purity of His  LOVE all around us.  Every manifestation  of His creative power, is an expression of the LOVE that is within HIM.   It is manifested in the creation of this world, in  the stars in the heavens,  in the cry of a new born baby, and in  the laughter of a child at play.  It is there in a puppies wagging tail, and in the tenderness of a lioness as she watches over her young  cubs. It is there each time a man or women lays down their comfort, and well-being for another. It is there every time a soldier lays down his or her life, in order to set  people they do not even know free from their oppressors. LOVE is there in your heart and in mine, all we have to do is be willing to open our hearts, and receive it as a free gift.

 

    God LOVE is the purest love that there is in this world. His… Love does not seek her own , is not selfish or self-centered. Love does not rejoice in iniquity but rather rejoices in the TRUTH. Love is not easily  provoked, but is serene and stable. Love is merciful, thoughtful, and concerned; it envies not. Love is great, gracious, generous; it is kind and good. Love thinks no evil but has faith in God and in others. Love is humble and gentle, does not  vaunt itself. Love is disciplines and controlled, does not behave unbecoming . ( I Corinthians 13:1-7 revised)

    Gods LOVE is never ending.  His LOVE  has no strings attached and does not need  to be earned. Nor is His LOVE blind, instead His  Love does not rejoice in iniquity but rather rejoices in the TRUTH. The TRUTH has the power to set us free,  because God LOVE allows us to see the TRUTH behind our own actions, and our own beliefs that are causing us unnecessary pain and hardship.

     NO! His LOVE is not blind. As a result, He understands our fears,  our hopes, the deepest desire of our heart, and our need to be loved. He understands our weakness, and our strengths, and the scars that are keeping us in bondage to the hurts of the past. He understands our fears of rejection and our need  protect our heart from any more pain.
 
Because His LOVE is pure it has the power to shine into the darkness of our own fears, and calm our fears.  There is no fear in love; for perfect love casteth out fear; because  fear has no torment. For he ( or she ) that feareth is not made perfect in love. ( I John 4:18) 

    Once I allowed His LOVE to enter my heart , I learned that LOVE for it to be true does not have to be earned. That it can flow free from a heart that is open to experiencing God Healing Grace.
