The Nature of God's Love-4

1 Peter 3:8
To conclude: you must all have the same attitude and the same feelings; love one another as brothers, and be kind and humble with one another.


Building Christ’s Family

I remember my first Kairos. On the way into that prison, I couldn’t
understand how it is that God can transform those hardened hearts. I was to
sit in a Table Family – face to face with these “hardened criminals”, and I
didn’t have a clue how to help God build a new family. I was lost. I couldn’t
do this. Looking back on that feeling now, I realize that in my weakness, in
my helplessness, in my lack of being in control that I again was forced to be
totally reliant on God. Yep, right where He wanted me!

So, how does Christ build a new family? He starts with you! You and a humble, loving heart. Ask the Holy Spirit to wash away those things in you that impede
the flow of the spirit through you. Wash away pride. Wash away control.
Wash away feelings of racism. Wash away hatred.
Wash away old injuries. Wash away jealousy.
Wash them all away so it is not you that the
family sees, but Christ through you.

I found a new family here!


What is God saying to me through this Word?

How do I I love someone who is unlovable?

Prayer Focus: Lift up all who will serve on the Table Families.

May we all remember that it was Christ, sent to us by our heavenly Father, who came at just the right time, while the world was unlovable to show the perfect expression of godly love, mankind was redeemed from sin, past present and future.

This was not God helping us because we were helping our selves. This is God reaching out to all of mankind, doing for us what none of us could do on our own.

How many of us have a personal testimony of God reaching out and giving us what we needed most, when we least deserved it?

We truly have an awesome God that is for us and not against us! How blessed are we that truth and grace dwells in us to encourage and enable all of us to be more than we have been and better than we are?
