HAPPY LOVE DAY ~ 2/14/ 2015
LOVE KNOWS NO BOUNDARIES!
LOVE IS...A MORE EXCELLENT WAY!
LOVE IS NOT...JEALOUS!
LOVE IS NOT...PROUD OR RUDE!
LOVE KEEPS NO RECORD OF BEING WRONGED!
LOVE IS NOT DEMANDING...NEEDING TO HAVE ITS OWN WAY!
LOVE DOES NOT REJOICE IN INJUSTICE, but REJOICES IN TRUTH, AND WINS!
LOVE BEARS ALL THINGS, BELIEVES ALL THINGS, HOPES ALL THINGS, and ENDURES ALL THINGS!
LOVE ENDURES THROUGH EVERY CIRCUMSTANCE!
LOVE NEVER FAILS!
FAITH, HOPE and CHARITY ABIDE. But the GREATEST of these IS LOVE!
LOVE WILL LAST FOREVER!
"TO LOVE ONLY a little PART of me, IS CONDITIONAL LOVE!
This means, You DO NOT Really LOVE Me AT ALL! " ~ DJR
The church I attended, God sent a jewel to us, her name is Mother Brownlee. She was a wonderful mother in the Lord, a Godly example to me. I miss her and I love her!
She LOVED ME! She mentored me and she taught me. I hung onto every word she spoke!
She always spoke the truth and thus, she was not liked by some people...many people!
Even thought Mother Brownlee knew that some people felt this way, it did not ever seem to effect her or bother her, however, I'm sure it did!
Even so, she never let anyone see or know that she was hurt by it. To me, she is a Saint. Definitely, one of the strongest women, I have ever had the pleasure of knowing!
I Love her! I'm thankful! She was such an inspiration to me. She made an impact in my life!
Mother Brownlee, was one of my favorite teachers, she had a way with words! She spoke under the power and demonstration of the anointing, which gave me life! She had some very profound, and life changing statements, she used regularly. I've kept them in my heart!
There is one in particular that I remember well, and I want to share it.
Vividly, I can still see her standing behind the podium. She would finish speaking. Standing there, Mother would pause for a moment, with her watchful eyes, sweeping the congregation. She would smile, that beautiful smile. Then, with the sweetest voice, filled with so much love, she would say,
"Baby you better not die, if you don't love me."
The first time I heard her say these words, I knew exactly what she meant.
Christians sit in church services, Sunday after Sunday, Wednesday after Wednesday. They say, they LOVE GOD, right? Do they?
My question is, "How do you say that you love God with all of your heart and you don't love me?
No wait a minute! You don't even like me! You actually, worship the quicksand I walk on...lol.
1 John 4:20-21. KJV.
IF A MAN SAY, (man, woman, aunt, uncle, boy, girl, brother, sister, Sunday School teacher, worship leader, etc..) I LOVE GOD, and he HATETH HIS BROTHER, HE IS A LIAR: for he that LOVETH NOT HIS BROTHER whom he hath seen, HOW can he LOVE GOD whom he hath NOT SEEN?
21. And this COMMANDMENT we have from HIM, That he who LOVETH GOD LOVE HIS BROTHER ALSO.
Whatever the reason may be, that you have chosen, TO PICK AND CHOOSE WHO YOU WILL OR WILL NOT LOVE, REMEMBER, THIS...There are no excuses. Without LOVE we are NOTHING and we have NOTHING!
Maybe with you, it is all about appearances! Maybe you dislike their hair, their makeup, their clothes. Maybe the don't have a brand new car, fancy home, a huge bank account. Maybe they do not meet your level of standards, to "fit in."
Well, who are you? Did you forget where you were? Have you forgotten where God brought you from and the hot mess he delivered you out of?!
With God it is "WHOSOEVER WILL! "
Did you ever stop to think some people are doing the best that they can, with the best that they have?!! Get out of the way! MOVE OUT OF THE DOORWAY AND LET THEM COME IN! WHO ARE YOU TO SAY, WHO CAN OR CANNOT COME?
Romans 2:1 KJV.
Therefore thou art INEXCUSABLE, O man, (again, a man, woman, aunt, uncle, boy, girl, brother, sister, Sunday School teacher, worship leader, etc...) WHOSOEVER thou art that JUDGEST: for wherein thou JUDGEST ANOTHER, thou CONDEMNEST THYSELF; for thou that JUDGEST DOEST THE SAME THINGS.
JAMES IS SPEAKING TO CHRISTIANS HERE!
James 4:11-12. NIV
11. a. BROTHERS AND SISTERS, do not slander one another.
11. b. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but SITTING IN JUDGEMENT ON IT.
12. b. But you- who are you to JUDGE YOUR NEIGHBOR?
James 4:12. KJV.
There is ONE lawgiver, WHO IS ABLE TO SAVE AND TO DESTROY: Who art thou that judgest another?
1John 4:7-21. Read it!
GOD IS LOVE! You are claiming to LOVE GOD, then you will LOVE your fellow man! Red, yellow, black or white we are ALL PRECIOUS IN HIS SIGHT!
Loving God means, loving each other!
Don't continue to walk around being a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal!
WALK IN LOVE!
REMEMBER, LOVE WINS!
