Grace

"The grace of our Lord [His amazing, unmerited favor and blessing] flowed out in superabundance [for me, together] with the faith and love which are [realized] in Christ Jesus." (1 Tim. 1:14 AMP).

 

The Baker Encyclopedia of the Bible says that grace is the dimension of divine activity that enables God to confront human indifference and rebellion with an inexhaustible capacity to forgive and to bless. That means that He will not stop blessing us. God is gracious in action.

If it is free then its not earned, and if it is earned then it is not free.  The only thing left for us to do is to receive it.  Grace has a name and it is Jesus Christ.

Tomorrow is a special day as it is the birthday of my earthly father who passed on over a year and a half ago.  From our family, I would like to wish him a happy birthday as he celebrates with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Grace in full effect! 

Love you pop.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Therefore, He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them. (Heb. 7:25 NASB).

 

Whenever the citizens of Gotham City got into trouble, they called on the one man that could save from distress. When some strong super villain came into the city and things got out of control, commissioner Gordon did the one thing that always brought them security, he would call upon the savior of the city by putting out the bat signal.

It's by the power of the Holy Spirit that men are saved.  In order to be saved we must realize that we are in need of a savior.  If you believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ died and rose again on the third day, then you too shall receive eternal life.  We pray that each of you receive the free gift of salvation today from God the Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  

 

One Love,

“There was a man from the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to him at night and said, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God, for no one could perform these signs you do unless God were with him.” (John 3:1-2 CSB).

 

When the Spirit of God touches our lives, things are forever changed and we never look at them the same way we use to.  Nicodemus was a Jewish Rabbi and a member of the Sanhedrin, and he was one of the richest men in Jerusalem.  He was a master of Israel and he held one of the highest official positions that one could hold.  He was a wise man that knew many things.  He was smart, intelligent and well read, and he knew the answers to a lot of things.  But there was one thing that he could not answer and it had him puzzled.

“Jesus and his disciples went on to the villages around Caesarea Philippi. On the way he asked them, “Who do people say I am?” (Mark 8:27 NIV).

 

Who are you? How do you want others to view you? It can be very hard not to worry what other people think about you. We all want to be liked and approved of, smiled at and congratulated on an accomplishment. That’s just the basic part of human reasoning and understanding. Jesus Christ asked the questions of His disciples upon them leaving Bethsaida while headed to the villages of Caesarea Philippi. But His question was nothing like the way that ours would be. He wasn’t asking it to see if He was being approved of or applauded no He asked the key question of life as it determines a man’s eternal fate.

“But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion on them, because they fainted, and were scattered abroad, as sheep having no shepherd” (Matt. 9:36 KJV).

 

“Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breath free; the wretched refuse of your teeming shore; send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me. I lift my lamp beside the golden door.”  These are the words that are inscribed on the Statue of Liberty in New York City. Dedicated on Oct 28, 1886, the statue was one that called out to people all over the world, all nations no matter who they are and where they would come from, were welcomed to come to America. This meant that all people from all walks of life that wanted a better life, a free life, one that took them away from the oppression of their former countries, could come in with the promise of life, liberty and justice. The Statue of Liberty stands as a symbol universal freedom. Freedom to all, not some!

This track was written and recorded by 5iveMinutes at 5iveMinutes Studios.  It was written because of what God placed on my heart this week.  If we say that we have love for one another lets all begin to show it.  Let's treat each other regardless of how different we are from each other with respect and dignity, and start having compassion for our fellowman.  We are all one in Christ Jesus!

 

One Love,

“The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want!” (Psalm 23:1 KJV).

 

To want means to have a desire to possess or to wish for something. I have a desire for something special at dinner, and I wish, crave or demand to have it. A want is a good or service that is not necessary for survival but we have a desire. To need means that that good or service is required.  We all want more than what we have, and the desire for it gets so strong that we miss out on what we already have. In my mind if someone gives me a dollar, it’s not enough because I want two. We think that if we lived in a better neighborhood or received that promotion on the job that our lives would somehow be better. But if I keep the same mindset, nothing has changed and I want more.

“Fathers, don’t stir up anger in your children, but bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.” (Eph. 6:4 CSB).

 

Fathers may get upset and irritated with their children sometimes; and sometimes we as fathers upset and irritate other people. Discipline and correction are not something that is an enjoyable experience but at times it is needed and necessary. Just like our heavenly Father has to discipline and correct us to get us back on track, we too must do the same.

 

I'd like to say Happy Father's Day to my father Leonard E. Crawford Sr, who is now in the arms of his loving and heavenly Father.  If it wasn't for you I don't know where I would be.  Love you always Pop!

“With him is only the arm of flesh, but with us is the Lord our God to help us and to fight our battles.” And the people gained confidence from what Hezekiah the king of Judah said.” (2 Chr. 32:8 NIV).

 

Confidence is defined as a feeling of self-assurance that comes from our appreciation of our God given abilities and qualities. We put confidence in the position of trust with another person, or we take confidence in them that we can tell our deepest secrets to.  The Bible however does speak on our confidence, it says in “have no confidence in the flesh, but that of God, because when we begin to rely on the flesh that gets us into all kinds of trouble because we think that we are more than we really are.

"He told them this parable: “No one tears a piece out of a new garment to patch an old one. Otherwise, they will have torn the new garment, and the patch from the new will not match the old.  And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. Otherwise, the new wine will burst the skins; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined.  No, new wine must be poured into new wineskins." (Luke 5:36-38 NIV).

 

When we made the commitment to give our lives to Jesus Christ, the slate was wiped clean. You no longer had to worry about things that you did in your past. God who is the justifier of us all says that once we accepted His Son into our hearts, then we are made into a new creature. The old things that we once knew and did are no more, as He see’s us as righteous because of the blood of Jesus. Not only is your plate cleaned, you were given a “fresh new start”, a new lease on life.

“Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you, before you were born, I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.” (Jer. 1:5 NIV).

 

Sometimes we are called to do things that WE do not feel that we are capable of doing. We are sometimes put in positions where there may be someone else with more experience and knowledge then what we have, but somehow you are called. God who knows better will show you what it is you need to know and how to go about doing it, even if it means that your closest family and friends turn away from you.
