ROOTED IN LOVE
John 1:14 (NIV)
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
John 3:16-20 New International Version (NIV)
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20 Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed.
For God so loved the world......
Jeremiah 29:11 A plan, A promise and A future
We have Bible scriptures to help us understand the plan of God for our lives. We have many examples set before us in Pastors, leaders, family and friends. Even as a child, I can remember a person who spoke life words to me. I had a neighbor who invited me to her church. It was there that a Sunday School Teacher gave me a little piece of wood that said, "JESUS LOVES ME". I kept that by my bed for a long time. When I doubted if I was loved, I looked at the little piece of wood. As I got older, I began to know who Jesus really was in my life.
I found out that not everybody in my life believes in Jesus. I continue to be who I am in life and pray for those around me. Only God can open our understanding of who Jesus is and how we can live in freedom of mind. Our minds holds memories of things we learned growing up, our lives now and the often the negative things. Casting away the negative things daily is so important. You are important and there is always someone who watches our lives. Our examples may go further than you will ever know.
