We all understand the general concept of forgiveness, but most of us are not especially proficient on the specifics on how to do it. So, in my next posts I'll be talking about forgiveness and what the action of accepting and releasing forgiveness for our lives...

Let's take a look at the first step

. Acknowledge that you have been seriously hurt.

- The starting point for being pursuing forgiveness is to admit that you’ve really been hurt. We like to pretend like what he said didn’t really bother us or what she did didn’t even phase us, but until we are willing to admit that we were hurt by them, we’re not in a place where we can begin to pursue forgiveness.

- There are many incidents in life that are not candidates for forgiveness - things like minor disappointments or passing slights. Situations that require forgiveness are ones where the pain inflicted is personal, unfair, and deep. Things like betrayal and brutality (physical or emotional) come to mind.

- At this point, as we hurt, we are likely to find some hatred in our heart. Hatred, of course, is never a good thing, but we must be careful that we don’t try to get rid of it by covering it up. When we find that hate in our heart, that’s simply a sign we’re going to need to forgive.

Stay tune for more on forgiveness...God bless

Hi everyone...

I've been trying to figure out what I could write about and was having a hard time doing so..
But today , while looking back on my songs list , I ran across a song called "Take you back" , which many of you know already and it's sung by Jeremy Camp.

Before the songs starts he talks about how he made mistakes in his life and the way God trated those mistakes.
It's undeniable that we are sinners and that there is nothing worthy or good in us. Moreover, we are far from being worthy of receiving God's love. We serve a God that is so holy and that hates sin so much that if it wasn't for His grace and Love we would never have a relationship with Him.
Now, one of the things that drifts us away from Jesus is not realizing that...
I mean, some people really do think that they have sinned so much and tghey have done such bad things that there is no way that God can forgive them. There's no way that this Holy God wants to have anything to do with them.
My friend, if you find yourself in this position , don't let the enemy mess with your mind. God has loved you from the beginning , He has made you and He has a porpuse for your life. He sent His one and only Son so that you could have this relationship with Him. He has made several attempts to call you during your day , He has loved you first and He will never give up on you. He is our heavenly Father and He will always take you back, regardless of what you have done. Trust Him , don't let other circumstances be bigger or more important than Him in your life. There's nothing better than living with Him and in Him.

Passionate Warrior

· God has given us gifts, He’s given us passion , He’s given us abilities, He’s planned us specifically at this time and place so that He could use us. He has a purpose for our lives, every warrior has a cause to fight for. We can’t only fight, until we don’t find the cause for which we have to fight for, we can’t truly live. Sometimes we feel hopeless and we wake up every morning with an empty feeling inside, that’s because we don’t have a cause , we don’t know what we’re living for. If we are willing to give up our dreams , our plans to Him, He will be able to do great things in us. Often we try to find the cause of our lives in our job, in our marriage, in our own plans, in our financial success. What’s interesting is that , if that is the main cause we’re fighting for, then the more we get these things, the more miserable we become.

· We need to understand that we are created beings, we have a creator . We didn’t come out of no where. This God created us for one purpose, to have an intimate relationship with Him and to worship Him. That is the original plan. That’s what we were created for .

We were created to be eternal beings, that’s the original plan…and what do we do? We live and fight for the things of this world.

· The first and the last thing Jesus said publicly : “Go and make disciples, tell them the good news” , what do we do? Ignore this commandment and live a selfish life.

· We’re fighting for the wrong cause, we’re living with the wrong priorities, as a result we will never be satisfied and find our purpose in life.

I In one of the speeches made by John Eldrege he said, “the universe is so vast and ageless, that the life of one man can only be justified by the measure of his sacrifice.

· My question is: How much are we willing to sacrifice for God? (this is a quote I used from my nephew Reisy) How much are we willing to live a selfless life and sacrifice our time and comfort for the sake of others? How much are we willing to sacrifice, to tell the good news to the people who don’t know Christ in spite of the mocking and the rejection? How much are we willing to sacrifice to live everyday not just fitting God into our agenda but making Him the center of our everyday life and giving 100% of our lives to Him?

· If we are willing to sacrifice our life for the purpose of living for the right cause, God will do great things in our lives. He will do things that you thought were impossible.

· What causes are you most passionate about in your life right now?

· Take a moment to meditate on this verses and ask God to give you the right cause to fight for...

· Luke 4:18

Marvelous Grace

Hi everyone, I sort of have been having busy days in the past week , however I think I'm back to my normal routine.
I was surfing on youtube and checking out some videos and I ran across this one:

Now what is the first word that comes to your mind when you finished watching it?
For me was definetely "GRACE" ,simply grace

In Ephesians 4:22-24 we read that we were taught, with regard to our former way of life, to put off our old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of our minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.

When we think of grace (I was like this) what immediately comes to our mind is...salvation . How God was so graceful in sending His one and Only Son to die for us and to rescue us from eternal pain and suffering. The deal is , grace is everything! From the Genesis 8:21 up to present days , God has made , is making and will make several graceful attempts in rescuing people that have decided to live independently of Him. Sometimes we are so caught in our problems and struggles that we end up forgetting God's grace and as a result we get so frustrated due to our failures at trying to be perfect and performing none less than the excellence and in the end blame God for the things that had a bad ending. Again, we end up thinking that grace is a once in a lifetime situation , the act of Jesus on the cross. It's not, it's by grace that we breath, it's by grace that we have healthy bodies, it's by grace that we have freedom, it's by grace we are forgiven day after day for our sins, it's by grace that we live! We gotta start understanding that only because of God's grace are we able to put off our old self and put on our new self, righteous and holy, to pratice this day after day. By the grace of God we are all equal and we are all in Jesus co-heirs of God and therefore we can rejoice in that fact. We live by the grace of God, every second , every minute , everyday of our lives. We gotta know deep inside that whatever we do , will not be enough to buy our way into heaven, because by grace , Jesus already paid that price. We can't live our days trying to live up to expectations, because we are sinners, and whatever we do for God is accepted by Him through His grace and not because we are sufficiently good. If it wasn't for His grace our offerings and everything we did for God, would be worth no more than garbage. But by His grace we are healed, by His grace we are restores daily, By His grace we are loved unconditionally and when we get that, we will be able to freely worship and serve God, and not living up to our own expectations and our own excellence.

Christ Follower X Christian : Light onto others

I write this to Christian's today. So, if you don't know Jesus as your Lord and Savior, this message is not for you. But I would say, you need Christ. Like the flowers need the sun and the rain, so too does the soul need Christ and the Holy Spirit. If you want to talk about it, my e-mail is on this site . One of these days I really should write a post on becoming saved, but that will have to wait.

To my brothers and sisters in Christ, we have a problem. For just one moment, I want you to think about the people around you. Now, eliminate from your thinking those around you whom you know to be Saved. If you are anything like me, you still have a large number of people in your thoughts. Now, I want you to think of how you've tried to reach those every same people.

Have you really done so? Or, have you done the typical Christian responses. If you are confused or would like to see what I mean, please, read on. I have noticed an alarming trend the last couple of years, and I find it to be getting far worse. We Christians are gaining but two responses to those trapped in their sin. Neither response is what we should be using.

The first response, "I'm Christian, you're unclean, stay away." Or, as I like to put it, "This is my Light, get your own." Some Christians have this habit (I know I have some guilt in this as well) to cover up themselves from loving those around them, and just get disgusted by those in sin. Instead of shining as a light to a dark and lightless world, they cover their lamp. This should not be so, for:

14 "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. -Matthew 5:14-16.

Very clearly we are commanded to shine our light into the world. Yes it may be hard, but God gives us nothing which we cannot bear ( 1 Cor. 13). I know stepping out in faith can be hard, but we have to, for if we don't, who will?

The second response that bothers me, "I'm a Christian and I'm going to shove it in your face as much as I can." First of all, this response is so very prideful (I know I have been guilty of doing this myself). Yes, you know Christ, but don't forget those who still need Him! When we push it in people's faces that we're Christians all the time, it puts them off because all they see is our pride. Am I saying stay away from the fact you know Christ? No, I am not. I am Christian and will gladly say so, but I need only tell those around me once that I'm Saved, then I should let my actions and my words speak for themselves and if that fails me, let God take over.

Also, with the mindset that you're somehow better than those around you because of your faith, you fail to be able to teach the Truth in love which we know to do in Ephes. 4:15.

Do I write this to condemn my brothers and sisters in Christ? No, I write it as a reminder for us all, for we all a guilty of falling short of the Glory of God, but greater is He who is in us, and with Him all things are possible. This is also meant to lift up my brothers in sisters in Christ, we all struggle, but there is always hope as long as Christ remains, and He shall forever and ever. Peace be with you.
