A Child of God

God has told me about the article I have just written on this subject. And it goes like this. “Your choice of words make out it is easy for people to give up their old ways and be simply a child of God. But I say to you it is not that simple if you live a life of sin. Be frank that I come to the simple of heart and make things simple for those who don’t know how.”

Now if you take those above words to heart and read my article that this article is on how a child of God should behave. We all battle with this, because the old man that is described in the bible, is sinful and always listens to the flesh and not by the Spirit of God as a pure child of God would. God also said to me. “Gods love for sinners, who try to be good will be rewarded on the day of Judgement.” Now I proceed with my article.

To be a child of God.

Matthew 18:3.’Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.’

What powerful words. Scary if you don’t know what it means to be childlike in your approach to God. Not to be immature as a child, but take on their innocents, their ability to be themselves and believe simply, without their head knowledge getting in their way. To speak openly to God how they feel towards something or someone. They can sense an evil person and keep away from them, because of their closeness to God, they appreciate the wonders of the world. And treat everything as brand new which it is for them. With us if we learn to pray and do things for God the way they do and then we will feel the closeness of God immediately. Depending how open we are to him. Be ready and open up like a child and you will receive the benefits from a God who is more like your father than your earthly father is to you. Doesn’t matter how good your father is he is no match to the Father who holds the whole universe in the palm of his hand comfortably. I have seen that in a vision God gave me. And you may think he can’t see the planet earth because it is so small, never alone us, yet God does see and he counts us worthy, to die for us on the cross, to save us from what ever we are going through. As a child of God, believe in his love and you will be rewarded for it. Even if it takes a couple of years for your prayers to be answered.

God has just answered my prayer of bold friends in Christ. It took a couple of years before it was answered, but he sure has answered it. We don’t always know why some prayers take longer to be answered than others. But remember a child of God has faith and will persevere and keep asking and declaring it until they see the prayer being answered. I was told not long ago by God that I loved money, which shocked me since I pay 10% tithe and more away. But what he was saying, which I found out later on, I love security and I have more faith in cash than I have of God ,who is my provider. If I didn’t ask as a child what he ment, he would not been able to explain to me, because I would otherwise listen to my intellect and not believe. And so if I didn’t humble myself and put my faith in God that he would explain and deliver me from my love of money. So you see we all have problems to deal with, but when we come to him as a child, he fixes it up the problem as a loving Father would. Maybe not in our timing, but in his wisdom and perfect timing. Be child like in your love of God and speak to him of your love for him as a child would and it cheers your heart and brings you ever closer in union with God our Father.

What you have done to the Least you have also done unto Me

Many people are saying the unborn is just chemicals (during the first few weeks of their life in the womb) and not a human being. Now people’s hearts have become so cold that babies full term are allowed to be killed in New York City. I want to quote some bible passages to remind Christians to take the written word very seriously, because we will be judged by how we live our lives. God is a God of love and mercy but He is equally a God of justice. Depending what translation of the bible you have the Psalms chapters numbering maybe different. So I will write down both numbers of the chapters down. So you can find it easier in your bibles.

Psalms 139: 13 or Psalms 138: 13. For it was you who created my being, knit me together in my mother’s womb.

Psalms 70: 6 or Psalms 71: 6. On you I have leaned from my birth, from my mother’s womb, you have been my help. My hope has always been in you.

I read not so long ago a verse from Psalms, but I can’t find it again, but it struck me most powerfully and it said, that David praised God for protecting him in his mother’s womb. Many parents aren’t protecting their unborn child. And it saddens me to think many people who say they are following Christ believe in abortion. Many people have died and gone to heaven and came back again to life giving witness that the largest part of heaven is the nursery, where the aborted babies go. I believe their testimony to be true.

God told me my mother had consecrated me while I was in my mother’s womb to Himself. That’s why I probably have such early memories as a baby. Especially the times when I called out and pleaded for help and God always answered my prayers and saved me from danger or from a very upsetting experience.

Psalms 21:10-11 or Psalms 22:10-11. Yes, it was you who took me from the womb, entrusted me to my mother’s breast. To you I was committed from my birth from my mother’s womb you have been my God.

I believe that verse is very true for me. “From my mother’s womb you have been my God.”

For the many who have believed in the lies of Satan about abortions. Don’t forget God can and does forgive the repented. So sumit your sorrow to God and not only will He forgive you, but heal you also, if you only believe in His love for you is greater than you can imagine. The abortionist are not going to warn women who are thinking about abortions the sorrow that comes with it. You can always adopt your child out. Some will say they would be too sorrowful to do that. Just imagine the sorrow that comes with abortion. Not just for the mother, but for grandparents as well. I hope you don’t feel like I am judging anyone, but abortion is not the answer, God will help you out if you humbly put your trust in Him.

Pray Without Ceasing

1 Thessalonians. 5:17-18. Pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

When I first was converted into believing the power of prayer, I thought prayer was just saying formula prayers and talking to God in your own words. What I found over the years, prayer is being in union with God in many different ways. Walking in faith in God, is prayer. And a powerful one at that. It doesn’t have to be words, but rather a state of being. Being conscious of God in the most ordinary things in life as well as in our sorrows, relaxations, excitement and etc. Being present and being aware that God is with you in all of this.

When you suffer don’t waste a moment of it, offer your suffering with our Lord and it will be rewarded beyond measure in heaven. Offering up our sufferings in patience, faith and love of God is a very powerful prayer. Most people agree fasting is something God is calling all Christians to offer up. But not everybody understands to offer up their lives to God for His glory, is to walk with Him in your daily activities with the same virtues as Jesus Christ. All this is prayer.

People sometimes think you only offer up your sufferings, but God wants you to offer everything about your life, your joys and relaxations as well. When you do that you become more careful to imitate Jesus. And therefore nothing about your life is wasted. Even you sinful nature, offer it up to God that you learn humility and be free of judging others.

If you look at nature God has made this world in such a way, nothing is being wasted. Even waste products is use to fertilise the soil. Our sins when repented of them can act in the same way. It is very humbling to know that it is only the love of God and the sacrifice that Jesus has made makes us worthy to be children of God. We have done nothing to deserve this honour, except to believe in Him and to live a life to please him much as possible. We are expected to do our best and be imitators of Christ. If we do that we are showing reverence and love and gratitude to God for all that He does for us. Which is always good.

Don’t ever be confused with the lies that Satan spreads about God. That God wants us to suffer, but rather realise we are in a fallen world and suffering is part and parcel of a world that has turn its back from God and Gods’ commandments, which is love and wisdom itself.

To pray without ceasing with a grateful heart will open doors to such intimacy with God. It usually doesn’t happen over-night. But it is truly rewarding if you make a habit of being with God, in faith. Sometimes you might experience His tangible presence, but mostly you will be resting in Him. What I mean by that you will be at peace with yourself and with God. You will learn to listen and do things His way, because you are always thinking of Him either consciously or unconsciously. He becomes the love of your life. And you will be able to carry your burdens easier, because you know God is with you in all of this. God doesn’t leave anybody, but we have to make a daily effort to choose to be with God in all of our activities and rest. I am not talking about hard thinking, but just a consciousness that God is with us. Learn to rest in Him. When you do, you will notice this comes about when you believe and trust Him to be the God He says He is.

Let the Light of God shine in us

Luke 12:35. Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning.

Matthew 5:15-16. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

I prefer the translation of ‘put it under a bushel’ than a basket. To me it makes more sense.

God gave me a revelation today I believe. The light that shines in us, is Jesus Himself shining through us. That if we are truly His, depending on the degree we are His, our light will shine intensely. If we genuinely are following Jesus and do His Will we are like a lantern. Depending how clean the lantern is the brighter the light will shine through us. The more people will recognise you belong to God, which will please God, because He will be able to reach more people that way.  You win souls, because it is Jesus touching souls through you.

 I practise Holy Communion for years, first thing every day. I often feel His Presence during Holy Communion within me. That is where I got the idea that I am a lantern or lamp whatever way you want to describe it. Jesus is His own person in us and He can heal, comfort set free the prisoners easily in us by just being one with Him. Many people who believe in the bread and wine turns into the actual body and blood of Christ and partake in it every day often feels His tangible Presence within them. So I am not the only one by far. But it was during Holy Communion I got the idea of being like a lantern and Jesus can flow through me and you according to how much we allow Him to do so. If we practise prayer and live to please Him we will shine. It will be His light that shines through us, not us. We become one with Jesus.

John 17:21. That they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.

Jesus can work through us secretly without us knowing. He can heal the sick, comfort those who are lonely and do miracles I believe, by just being in us. We don’t have to do anything, but love God with all our hearts and above all things, and obey Him. He will use us because He is in us.

Nothing is more important than having a relationship with God

Nothing is more important than having a true warm loving relationship with our Heavenly Father. God loves us with such tenderness and yet most passionately at the same time. There are people who love God, but rarely think of Him. We must learn to get into a beautiful habit of adoring Him every day. That way we will automatically run to God when we are in trouble. As well as thanking Him for all the gifts He has given us. We should never take our relationship with God for granted.

The more we relate to God the closer we will become towards Him and the richer our faith will be. The greater the attention we give God the more we will see His hand in our day, helping us. So many times people are blind to the many miracles that come our way. We have guardian angels protecting us and leading us to where we are meant to go in our lives. Don’t forget to thank God for the small and big mercies. We have a living relationship with a true living God who is all powerful and loves us the same way He loves His only begotten Son Jesus Christ.

Now here is the catch, God is very demanding. He is a very jealous lover. We must pay attention to this. We must listen to the Holy Spirit, not the spirit of the world. Jesus teaches us plainly what He expects of us. We must do what is holy in His sight. His love is on fire for us, we should be on fire for Him. That is not possible without a prayer life.

People should back their churches with powerful prayers. Pastors should be praying in earnest for their congregation spiritual well-being. As well as preach a powerful message anointed by the Holy Spirit. Instead too many give only soft messages that tickle the congregation ears, with false security. You must prepare the congregation for the times we are living in. God said to me “Without prayers for their congregation everything will fail, without my Divine assistance nothing will flourish. Without the help of Our Lady, suffering will increase.” They are the words of God to me. God also said talking about Our Lady. “I have placed her high above the rest.” Mary will be honoured at the cross, her son bleed to death for humanity.” Before you dismiss the importance of calling Mary for help, especially in these times, do some research work for yourself. Read Catholics visionaries for yourself. Don’t just believe what you have been told by those who are Anti-Catholics.

I follow Jesus not any particular church. I take what the Holy Spirit leads me to. And I have found both Catholics and Protestants, God speaks to both of them. We should be sharing one another’s communications from God. It is time now that Christians should be united. How can we be united if we refuse to listen to the Holy Spirit within the church regardless which one you belong to.

The Truth will set you free

There is only one truth. God is the only one who knows it all. There is only one God and that is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Not all religions are equal. Serving many gods is a lie, they are demons pretending to be gods.

Many people are saying ‘my truth.’ There can’t be many different truths. There can only be one truth, especially when they conflict with one another. In all the Denominations, there are many different beliefs on how to interrupt scripture. I understand that we are doing our best and have different views. But if we learn to humble ourselves and call on God with an open heart, God will open our eyes to what scripture is actually saying. If we live a holy life that please God. We will know deep mysteries about Him, because He will visit us. We must live a holy and humble life that please Him. I believe we all can do it through His grace, if we really want to. God always hears the cry of His people.

Ecclesiastes 2:26. God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy to those who please Him.

John 18:37…. The reason why I come into the world is to testify to the truth. Anyone committed to the truth, hears my voice.

I particularly like the way it says ‘anyone committed to the truth, hears my voice.’ There are plenty of people that aren’t that committed, because they deliberately refuse to follow Jesus on His terms. They say they are believers, but when you listen to them and look at the way they live, they are no different to non-believers. Matter of fact some non-believers are more Christ like then they are.

The closer we follow Jesus the more we feel that we don’t fit in, because we are too different from everybody else. We have different standards. One of them is we don’t use Gods’ name in vain. We love Him too much to hurt His feelings, and we have a holy fear of Him that keeps us from straying from His laws.

Many people know what the teachings of the Bible are and yet choose to water down or change its meaning or even delete them. You know that is what heretics are made of. When and if we do that we are no longer on Jesus side. We no longer walking with Jesus. If we not walking with Jesus we are actually walking with the devil. It is a horrible thought.

The more we love Him the more we want to know Him. And that comes from obeying Him. We please Him, and then we are open to the wisdom and knowledge of God more and more. God rewards us in many different ways. You may start to have visitations from Jesus and sometimes angels. When this happens your love grows even more and more, and you then want to obey Him more and more. You become a different person altogether, who won’t compromise the truth, because it is true, the truth will set you free. Then you receive even more visitations from God and so on it goes. While this is going on, the world will hate you as they hated Jesus. People of the world are not interested in the truth. They want to live for themselves. In their lives they will find no peace, because true peace comes only from Jesus, and He gives it to those who truly follow Him.

Many Have Answered the Call to be Martyrs for God

Not everyone will be called to give up their physical lives to God. Though we are all called to die to ourselves. Meaning to give up all our evil ways and imitate the virtues of Christ, and do the will of our Heavenly Father. Now that’s been said, martyrs do have a special place in Gods’ heart. It is only natural to think that.

1 John 3:16. This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down His life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.

To follow Jesus is not an easy task. It’s both full of joy and sorrow. The joy in our Lord is our strength. We can conquer all things through the merits of Jesus Christ. We have to learn to deny ourselves the passions of our flesh, which is hard enough. But when we see how many lost souls there are, who will go to hell if they are not rescued in time, is a very painful truth to a true believer of Christ. They would naturally want to do what they can to help them saved. Even if all they can do is pray and fast for them.

I was watching a video of true martyrs being tortured. It sadden me to think people can be so cruel to another human being. I was saddened all day long. So I eventually turn to the Lord and this is what He had to say to me. “I want you to repeat after me, that the more souls willing to sacrifice their lives for me, I will shower mercy on continents.”

Many people might have difficulty believing God said that to me. Have your own way. God doesn’t always say what you want Him to. I am however perfectly happy with that statement.  I have read a book “The Way of Divine Love.” Many years ago, by Sister Josefa Menendez. Tan Publication. That book changed my whole life around. It is still available on the internet if you want to purchase it for yourself. It will open your eyes wide.  It gave me a real look at the graces God gives to somebody who is selfless and willing to pay any price to save souls for God. She was a living sacrifice for God and God alone. I wish I can be like her. Her life influenced me to offer myself up to God, to become a martyr for Gods intentions. I tell you what, no sooner I offered up myself, Jesus appeared and He was so happy. I believe He was carrying His cross, but I am not so sure, because I was more interested in what He was looking at. Even though I couldn’t see it, I believe He was looking at all the souls that will benefit from my sacrifice.

Many will probably argue that Jesus redeem all mankind, why would He want us to offer ourselves to become martyrs to save souls. I tell you the book I mention earlier would explained it far better than I can. All I know is any kind of sacrifice we offer up cheerfully with faith can move mountains, including saving stubborn souls. Jesus wants us to imitate Him as much as possible. It is true God is setting up safe havens, for these times and many of Gods children will go there and be safe from persecutions. God wants me to put them at peace, who maybe feeling guilty that they are not able to be martyrs for the salvation of souls. They will be used by God mightily according to their faith. God will continually bath them with His love. And He doesn’t want you to be sorry, but be at peace.

For those who are to become martyrs for God, my advice is pray every day for yourself and current and future martyrs, to persevere to the end. Pray that they will receive all the graces they need to be strong and faithful in the Lord. God gives mercy to those who are merciful. If we look after Gods interest He will look after ours, as the saying goes. What I saw in that video was horrific and it would be unkind not to pray for them also.

Doing Gods’ Will fulfills us

My father lived a good life. He was a carpenter and he helped the family and friends out when they needed help using his skills as a carpenter. When he was dying he said over and over again I wasted it, I wasted it. Meaning he wasted his life on earth. He had an encounter of the Crucified Christ and I believe he felt he could of done a lot more to please God in his lifetime. I am bringing this up because even though he was a generous man in many ways, he still saw that he could have done a lot more for God. I want us all to live fully for God and be happy with our lives, that when we die we know we have made the best use of our opportunities to serve God. God was very gracious to my father, He heard his prayer and I believe He extended his life a few more months longer, to make up for lost time.

Both my mother and myself was told by God, that what my father went through in those few months, is what saints usually take a life time to reach. So I am proud of my father the way he became so holy in such a short time. After great tribulation we also can become holy, compassionate, merciful, forgiving and affectionate to one another, just like how God wants us to be. I know realistically we wouldn’t be entirely happy. The more we grow in love with God, the more we want, which is excellent. That is a sure way to grow more pleasing to God.

I want to be great in heaven, and I want us all to be great. We are working for a whole eternity. The closer we are to God here on earth, the more intimate we will be with God in heaven for a whole eternity. We can all do it if we truly want it. Like my fathers’ cry to God was answered at his death bed. Lets’ not wait until then. Lets’ start crying out to God now. God does have favourites. The more we resemble Jesus on earth the more we are loved by God. Many people will disagree with that. We all can get there, we all can be Gods’ favourite. There is plenty of love to go around. We are so unique and so is our calling, if we choose to follow Jesus to become great in heaven. Don’t be lazy and really reach out to God begging Him, to make you great in heaven. If you do, expect trials that will purify you, and if you hang onto Gods’ reassuring promises you will prosper. Anything that is worth something is hard work, but you won’t be saying on your death bed I wasted it, I wasted it. But enter into His glory.

You know in heaven there are all different levels of spiritual wealth. The more pleasing you are to God on earth the more spiritual wealthy you become in heaven. One thing I am glad to hear in heaven there is no jealousy among the inhabitants of heaven as they are here on earth.

One guy went to heaven and he told his brother who was his guide, that he wanted to see the cities in heaven, and his brother told him they aren’t cities, but mansions. I want a mansion in heaven. Many people in heaven, haven’t got a mansion or a home, because basically they didn’t use the many opportunities God gave them to grow in His Spirit, and do the works that Jesus did.

God is inviting us all, even the worst sinner of all time, are invited to come nearer to God and be Gods’ favourite child. Jesus has paid the full price for all our sins on the cross, and is willing to give us graces that will cleanse our hearts from the desires of this world, to a holy desire in pleasing only God. The closer we come to Him the more we desire Him. He is so beautiful. Our eyes are open more as we get closer. Often we have encounters of Jesus while we are still on earth that strengthens our desires for Him more. There is a price to pay and that is learn to surrender to Gods’ every wish. Of course we fall many times, but we get right back up again and repent and all is forgotten by God our Father. Thanks to Jesus paying the full price for our salvation.

I am ever so grateful for all the saints that have inspired me to follow Jesus more closely than I would of otherwise have done. I would have missed out on so much.

Love Yourself as God wants you to

Very few of us love ourselves as we are called to. We listen to, too many lies from the devil and the proper gander of the world, and not what God is trying to tell us. The opinion of the world is back to front from what God is telling us. We judge ourselves too harshly as a genuine rule. We tend to expect ourselves to live up to an impossible task of what the world and those around us expect of us.

God wants us to be ourselves, and know the difference between loving ourselves the right way from the wrong way. We are allowed by God to be kind to ourselves and know it takes time to get our spiritual house in order. We fail many times before we can break bad habits, but if we keep persevering with Gods’ help, we will break bad habits with a positive attitude. Too many times we expect instant success.

I wasn’t very good at many of the subjects that the school was teaching me. Because God gave me different gifts that that school didn’t teach. So I had an inferior complex which should have never happened. My mother use to go to different schools when she was young. One school, sports was all important. If you were good at sports they made a great fuss over you. Another school my mother went to, the academic studies were more important. So if your talent was sports they weren’t impress with you. You see what I am getting at. Depending on what crowd you are in, they expect you to win their approval, but not Gods’. And God is the one who made us. He is the one who hands out gifts to His children. Not one gift is less precious than the other. They are all important to serve Him in His Kingdom purpose. God has a perfect plan for all of us.

 But we need to listen to the Holy Spirit and ask God to direct our lives where we should go. I believe if you have a dream that doesn’t go away, God has put it there. Usually it is impossible without Gods’ supernatural help to accomplish it. Because God wants all the glory. I was told by God He has a greater dream than I do of myself, and that includes you also. It requires believing in Gods’ special love for you alone and are willing to go after your dream with much prayer and waiting for the right time, place and people to help you arrive. And also doing what you can to make it happen. We need to speak positively about ourselves and our future. Declaring and decreeing as much as possible. Like the Bible says there is power in the tongue. And like it also says, “decree a thing and it shall be established.” I am not sure where that is in the Bible, but it is in there.

Don’t be harsh on yourself when you can’t be the person you want to be. You are in Gods’ eyes the perfect child of God all ready. You and I need to really know that all the time. If we doing our best despite of our failures that is all right. Jesus spoke to a nun called Sister Josefa Menendez that He prefers someone who has fallen many times, but humbly repents, from someone who hasn’t fallen much, but is full of pride. Remember Gods’ love is nothing like mans’ love. We love most of the time conditionally, but Gods love is never ending. And we are in love with God, serving Him the best way we can, is very pleasing to Him. We must remember we are the head and not the tail. Shows on T.V. makes out they are the smart ones, but in truth they preach from their shows lies. Only truth will stand. When the storms of life hits, lies will crumble and fall down with a loud noise. But those who are righteous in the Lord will be able to stand through any storm, because they trust God with all they have. They don’t lean on their own understanding, so that makes them teachable and bendable for the Holy Spirit to work through them. When God fights for us, we always win.

Because I failed to fast properly for a couple of days I got upset with myself. This is what some of the things God had to say to me. “How I wish you would consider how many times you have completed a fast? Sue you are wrecking your chances when you address yourself as a failure. Are you not my child? You awakening to your faults. They always were there, but now you see them better.”

In other words the more light is poured into us by the Spirit of God, we are going to see faults that we didn’t know about. So we can work on that area. Just imagine if God was to show us all our faults at once, it would kill us. So sometimes we are actually advancing when we see more, to work on. I have to warn you that not always this is so. The more you see doesn’t always mean you are advancing, only when you are truly fighting for Gods’ Kingdom to come. There are of course those who don’t want to improve and they live in sin, because they choose to do so.

Love One Another

God has just told me today to teach on how to love our neighbour. God has never done this to me before. So I hope I can, through His Spirit show how I do it. I am still growing in this of course. But first I want to explain we often think of loving one another as having sweet and warm feelings about another. To my understanding of love, sometimes we don’t have nice feelings towards that person, but rather a true desire that they are out of pain for e.g. and we wish them well and not grudge them anything good. Sometimes there is a warm nice feeling, but usually that feelings is often to people you know well and they in turn love you. Loving your enemy is so much harder, because of our human nature wants to get back even with them. When I first started to learn to love my enemies I found it almost impossible. Of course God is not finish with me yet. As you know there are different degrees of love. To love like Jesus is infinite. So that we are growing to love more as we come closer to God.

One time I ask God ‘the saints must of hated people sins too, how did they manage to love them?’ God showed me they did, but they loved the person, despite of their sins. If I am finding it difficult, I think of them as when they first arrived in this world. As a baby we were all beautiful, loveable and just wanted to be loved in return. Then the world got to us. Christ teaches us how to handle it. But if you don’t have Jesus to guide you or refuse to let Jesus guide you, we respond by being angry with everybody, blaming everybody for what happened to us, general speaking. I have been there, where I couldn’t trust anybody. If somebody was kind to me, I wanted to know what the real reason for their act of kindness was.

When I can see everybody has been created beautifully and their meanness often comes from pain or ignorance or lack of help on how to deal with it, my heart softens. Also knowing God loves them passionately and wants them to know His love for them and save them, softens my heart even more towards them. Also knowing they could be converted in the future sometime, and become a better Christian than I am, humbles me. Praying for them and blessing them, doesn’t matter how hard it is also softens me and leads me into forgiving them. Praying for them does wonders if you put your whole heart into it. I am learning to let go of my pride just like everybody else, but if I do these things I get results.

I heard and explanation once from Jesus by another person and something similar by a saint explaining how precious we are and beautiful we really are. The explanation goes like this, a stature made of gold and dirt covered all over it. We can’t see the golden stature, but when it is washed we then can see the perfect gold stature. The dirt represents our sins that everybody sees, but underneath all that there is a beautiful image of God waiting to be seen. It wasn’t said in those exact words, but you get the picture. We are so beautiful to God that our sins are nothing if we ask God for forgiveness. He will wash our sins away with the blood of Jesus. So knowing that makes you want to do the right thing by people and God.

I have seen people that have changed dramatically after God has touched them and it gives me hope. I was told by God to treat your enemies with respect. That way they might have a chance to be saved. I am finding people I don’t click with, have warmed up to me by simply accepting them as they are without judging them. God has put it into my heart to give them a jar of jam that I made, and it has brought me closer to people I would not normally feel comfortable with.

So these are some ideas some people might like to try. Jesus teaches us in Matthew chapter five how we ought to treat one another. And it works. We just have to learn to swallow our pride and obey Him. Practices makes perfect. We always get rewarded by obeying Him.
