Forgiveness

It turns out decisional forgiveness, as the department of psychology at the University of Munich refers to it, is necessary, but it’s not enough.

Moving forward requires our emotional forgiveness, which is bad news for those of us who have trained our emotions to wipe their feet at the door and stay out of logic’s way.

No Longer Slaves to Fear. I am a CHILD of GOD!

Romans 8:15

So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God’s Spirit when he adopted you as his own children. Now we call him, “Abba, Father.”
Romans 8:15 NLT

I have found my journal. A journal that is different from my normal journal with writings of my messages to God and His message to me. In this journal, I had compiled His promises in a form of drawings or sketch or what you could say it as an art (whatever 😂😉😳).

I found this verse in one of the pages

I love this verse. I love it the most when I understood it intently. God position us to the safe place, the moment we believe that He raised Jesus Christ from the dead. We are released from God’s wrath.

At the cross, Jesus took our infirmities; Jesus took our condemnation; Jesus took our sicknesses and diseases. Jesus redeemed us and saved us from our sins. He delivers us. Jesus is the main bridge for us to call God our Abba (Father).

Because of Jesus obedience we can live the life that is full of grace. The Grace which everyone is undeserved to possess it.

But God is a gracious God. His goodness is can not be measured. His intelligence is can not be fathomed. He is the Sovereign God.

He had given us the sonship through Christ Jesus. What a privilege to have that.

Let He be a Father to you. A Father who will do everything for His son own good sake. A Father who is so generous when you ask. A Father who is so so good. Because that is who He is!

None like King Hezekiah (Part 1)

hezekiah

Bible passages: 2 Kings 18-20, 2 Chronicles 29-32, Isaiah 36-39

*All Bible passages used are in NKJV

 

King Hezekiah, son of King Ahaz and Abijah, daughter of Zechariah, was the 13th king of Judah and the king who “did what was right, good and true in the sight of the LORD, according to all that His father David done” (2 Kings 18:3, 2 Chronicles 31:20) like some kings of Israel and Judah. I, as a kid, have known him for having an additional 15 years of life given to him by God when He prayed to God for his sickness (2 Kings 20:6) but never did I know that he was regarded as the king like no other.

2 Kings 18:5 says:

He trusted in the LORD God of Israel, so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor who were before him..

He must have been quite a king to be regarded as such! The king who trusted God that no king before and after him was like him.  Let’s look at some characteristics of King Hezekiah:

  1. He was zealous for the restoration of both Judah’s and Israel’s relationship to the LORD God.  2 Chronicles 18:3-5 says:

    In the first year of his reign, in the first month, he opened the doors of the house of the LORD and repaired them.  Then he brought in the priests and the Levites, and gathered them in the East Square, and said to them: “Hear me, Levites! Now sanctify yourselves, sanctify the house of the LORD God of your fathers, and carry out the rubbish from the holy place.

    His first order of business as king was seeking God by cleansing God’s temple and urging the Levites to purify themselves before God. He unashamedly admitted before his people about the trespasses their fathers made before God by turning their backs from Him and forsaking Him that brought upon the wrath of God. He urged his people to come back to God as they were chosen by Him, as 2 Chronicles 18:11 says:

    My sons, do not be negligent now, for the LORD has chosen you to stand before Him, to serve Him, and that you should minister to Him and burn incense.

    This king wasn’t afraid to admit their transgressions before God but instead he humbled himself and repented and then urged his people to do the same. He made them remember that they, the Levites, were chosen by God with a specific purpose for Him. After repenting and cleansing themselves, they worked on cleansing the temple, as 2 Chronicles 18:16 says,

    Then the priests went into the inner part of the house of the LORD to cleanse it, and brought out all the debris that they found in the temple of the LORD to the court of the house of the LORD.

    2 Kings 18:4 mentioned specifically that he abolished the pagan idols that the Israelites used to worship:

    He removed the high places and broke the sacred pillars, cut down the wooden image and broke in pieces the bronze serpent that Moses had made; for until those days the children of Israel burned incense to it, and called it Nehushtan.

    King Hezekiah led and commanded his people to worship only one God, “the LORD of hosts, the God of all the kingdoms of the earth who made heaven and earth” (Isaiah 37:16).

    2 Chronicles 29:29-30 says:

29 And when they had finished offering, the king and all who were present with him bowed and worshiped.30 Moreover King Hezekiah and the leaders commanded the Levites to sing praise to the LORD with the words of David and of Asaph the seer. So they sang praises with gladness, and they bowed their heads and worshiped

He even urged all Israel to seek God as 2 Chronicles 30:1 says:

And Hezekiah sent to all Israel and Judah, and also wrote letters to Ephraim and Manasseh, that they should come to the house of the LORD at Jerusalem, to keep the Passover to the LORD God of Israel.

King Hezekiah recognized that knew seeking God and restoring their relationship with Him as one nation was of utmost importance and should be his foremost priority.

 

2. He diligently  and whole-heartedly obeyed God which resulted to prosperity and favor.

2 Kings 18:6 says:

For he held fast to the LORD; he did not depart from following Him, but kept His commandments, which the LORD had commanded Moses. The LORD was with him; he prospered wherever he went.

Moreover, 2 Chronicles 31:21 adds:

21 And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, in the law and in the commandment, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart. So he prospered.

Throughout his life, King Hezekiah was faithful in every work that he did for God and served God with all his heart. He and his people honored the LORD through worship, burnt offerings, devotions to the law of the LORD and the giving of “firstfruits of grain and wine, oil and honey, and of all the produce of the field”          (2 Chronicles 31:5). This was rewarded by God by blessing his kingdom.  King Hezekiah saw this great abundance as it says in 2 Chronicles 31:9:

Then Hezekiah questioned the priests and the Levites concerning the heaps.10 And Azariah the chief priest, from the house of Zadok, answered him and said, “Since the people began to bring the offerings into the house of the Lord, we have had enough to eat and have plenty left, for the Lord has blessed His people; and what is left is this great abundance.”

The people gathered the grain for four months. Before this, grains were already taken by the priests as tithes and offerings dedicated to the LORD and by the people of Judah as provisions for their families. Still after all were full, the left overs were still great in amount!

King Hezekiah had the favor of God and with it came the favor of men. As it says in 2 Chronicles 30:11-12:

11 Nevertheless some from Asher, Manasseh, and Zebulun humbled themselves and came to Jerusalem. 12 Also the hand of God was on Judah to give them singleness of heart to obey the command of the king and the leaders, at the word of the LORD.

When the king sent letters to urge people all throughout Israel to come to Jerusalem to worship and keep the passover, some laughed and mocked at the runners carrying these letters (2 Chronicles 30:10). But God’s hand was upon the tribes of Asher, Manasseh, Zebulun and of course, Judah. He touched the nation of Judah that all obeyed, as one and with the singleness of heart, the command of the king and observed the passover. God blessed the feast with great joy and with a great number of people as 2 Chronicles 30:25-16 says:

25 The whole assembly of Judah rejoiced, also the priests and Levites, all the assembly that came from Israel, the sojourners who came from the land of Israel, and those who dwelt in Judah. 26 So there was great joy in Jerusalem, for since the time of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel, there had been nothing like this in Jerusalem.

Abundance in grain, people, favor and joy! An overflowing abundance indeed!

.The Temptation of Jesus.

“Let us learn on Jesus ways on how he resisted temptation. He soak, fill and saturate. Early in the morning he will wake up to devote his time to the Lord. He will fast for him to regain the zeal of his commitment to do the will of God to him and to draw near to God.

Let us follow Jesus ways! Let he be our role model to resist temptation in this world.”

Matthew 4:1-11 NLT

Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted there by the devil. For forty days and forty nights he fasted and became very hungry. During that time the devil came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become loaves of bread.” But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures say, ‘People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’ ” Then the devil took him to the holy city, Jerusalem, to the highest point of the Temple, and said, “If you are the Son of God, jump off! For the Scriptures say, ‘He will order his angels to protect you. And they will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.’ ” Jesus responded, “The Scriptures also say, ‘You must not test the Lord your God.’ ” Next the devil took him to the peak of a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. “I will give it all to you,” he said, “if you will kneel down and worship me.” “Get out of here, Satan,” Jesus told him. “For the Scriptures say, ‘You must worship the Lord your God and serve only him.’ ” Then the devil went away, and angels came and took care of Jesus.

When we are in this kind of situation, how is our respond will be like?

In the Scripture, Jesus was being tempted after he fasted for 40 days and 40 nights. As human he was very hungry. His flesh was weak. Fragile — easy to break and need a rest and food to refuel it.

But his Spirit was full. He had God’s fullness at this time as he fasted for 40 days and 40 nights. His Spirit was high with God almighty.

As tempter tempted him, first, he tempted his weakness— his flesh — his hunger. But Jesus thrown the tempter a Scripture “People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.”

Second, the temper tempted Jesus through his sound mind. “Then the devil took him to the holy city, Jerusalem, to the highest point of the Temple, and said, “If you are the Son of God, jump off! For the Scriptures say, ‘He will order his angels to protect you. And they will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.’ ” Jesus responded, “The Scriptures also say, ‘You must not test the Lord your God.’

Third, the tempter tempted Jesus through the lust of the eyes. “Next the devil took him to the peak of a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. “I will give it all to you,” he said, “if you will kneel down and worship me.” “Get out of here, Satan,” Jesus told him. “For the Scriptures say, ‘You must worship the Lord your God and serve only him.’”

Then the devil went away, and angels came and took care of Jesus. Matthew 4:11

How are we able to be like Jesus? Resisting the temptation in this fallen world?

We should be like Jesus! We must understand that in this Scripture, Jesus was still human. He had his weaknesses as well, but he resisted it.

How he can resist it? He resisted it by

  1. SOAK. Soaking his Spirit in the presence of God. The Bible said in Psalm 91:1 ” Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence. Psalm 91:1‭, ‬3 NIV – The Devil will first target our weakness. But he know nuts! He thought that Jesus can fall as prey. The things that he was not aware was Jesus’ Spirit was strengthened and communing to God at that very moment. “In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words;” – Romans 8:26. Knowing that  God is already protecting Jesus at that very moment.
  2. FILL. Filling and knowing the Scripture by Heart. After Jesus was not tempted his weakness. The devil’s second target was his sound mind. Li’l did he know that Jesus is guarding his heart with the words of God. Jesus guarded his heart by believing the truth of the Word by heart. The Bible tells us in Proverbs 4:23 “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.” Jesus’ heart was saturated with Word of God and as in everything we do it flows from our heart. Jesus’ heart was so strong as he had fasted because God made it strong and full of wisdom that directs and flows to his mind not to be warped by this world.
  3. SATURATE his Focus. Knowing where your heart is there your treasure is also. Jesus knows where is his treasure is. He knows his kingdom is not in this world but in the heavenly kingdom that the Lord is preparing for him. “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:19‭-‬21 NIV . Jesus knows by heart and mind that his kingdom was not in this world. He can never be deceived by this world’s deceiving glory. He set his focus in mind and heart to heavenly treasure.

Let us learn on Jesus’ ways on how he resisted temptation. He soak, fill and saturate. Early in the morning he will wake up to devote his time to the Lord. He will fast for him to regain the zeal of his commitment to do the will of God to him and to draw near to God.

Let us follow Jesus’ ways! Let he be our role model to resist temptation in this world.We need to have God’s fullness in our life daily!

The Noble Job Post

Job position, scope of work, pay and schedule – are the top consideration when people look into job posts. Human being by nature focuses on looking after the title, what we need to do, how much we can get, and how much of our time will be spent in terms of doing something from our job, our social life, and on something which we are called to be by God.

Are you in leadership right now? Or being challenged to be a leader? It is not coincidence that you are reading this blog.

The Nobility of Leadership

Leadership is noble. If so what does the Bible wants us to know about nobility? The Bible says in Isaiah 32:8 “But the noble make noble plans, and by noble deeds they stand”

The 4 Humble Reminders

1. Job Position

Remember that being a leader is a noble job, it is not about the title but must focus on why God has called you. In Acts 20:28, leaders are empowered by the Holy Spirit to be overseers and shepherd of God’s church.

“Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood” (Acts 20:28)

2. Scope of Work

Leader comes from Indo-European word “leit” which means “the one who holds the flag in the front of an army”. Followers of Jesus are all considered warriors, but a group of warrior must have it’s God-lead leader in order to guide the way where the team must go to conquer. Otherwise, each warrior would have to fight without direction.

We do not lead to impose laws of man-made origin but to draw the people closer to God (Psalm 145:18, Psalm 73:28). We need to set as a modest example from the inside out, with the true representation of Jesus – Spirit is caught not taught.

3. Pay

As we keep our submission to God and continue to obey His direction, God as what Paul said as encouragement to the people of Corinth on his second letter, will surely keep His covenant with us. In 2 Corinthians 15:58, Paul says

“Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”The same thing was addressed to Galatians.

“Let us not become weary of doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up” (Galatians 6:9)

4. Schedule

Proper time scheduling should be exercise in order to balance ministry, family life and personal life. The Bible says in Ephesians 5:15-17 to “Be very careful, then, how you live – not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.”

Congratulations! You are “Hired”!

Faith is the main currency used in the Kingdom of God. As early as now, exercising how to use this can help us win any spiritual battles we might encounter. As we work more for the advancement of His Kingdom, know that more distractions and trials will be faced ahead. Keep in your heart that “God has given us gifts and His calling is irrevocable” (Romans 11:29)

Understanding Why We need to partake the Covenant Meal

First, we need to understand the meaning of the Great Cross Exchange. 

The Cross, the New Covenant was cut and an important exchange took place. Jesus took our sin and all the bad we deserved, so that we could have all His good!

Jesus was perfectly good. He obeyed all of God’s laws completely. So He deserved all God’s blessings. We were sinners. We couldn’t obey God’s laws completely. And we deserved punishment and death, so we can have all of His blessings.

20171028_1833582078538001.jpg
God’s Promises 101 (IAMgoodstar.com) – Luke 22:19-20

Luke 22:19-20

19 And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”

20 In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.

While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.” Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. I tell you, I will not drink from this fruit of the vine from now on until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father’s kingdom.”
Matthew 26:26‭-‬29 NIV

My son, David Gideon asked me, how to lead the Covenant Meal or the Holy Communion as Hope Church Singapore is having BlackOut Sundays, This Sunday, 29 October 2017 would be the last Sunday of BlackOut. (please click the link to understand the BlackOut Sundays of Hope Church Singapore)

He and his sister, Gladly Gedelyn are leading a group of youth in the Hope- Filipino (Youth Ignite). They had to lead the group with LifeGroup dynamics aptly.  It was a good question to me when he posed it, and ponder upon it. Yes, why should I not dig it out, and be able to teach my son, how to lead the Covenant Meal and so as myself.

As I read again the Scripture about the New Covenant and Comparisson from the Old Covenant, I was just really amazed how God loves us. How “blessed” Believers are! His wondrous love and by His grace- the Cross had the wholeness of our being spiritually in Christ Jesus. Hallelujah to the living God alone!

Here how it is.

First, we need to understand the meaning of the Great Cross Exchange. 

The Cross, the New Covenant was cut and an important exchange took place. Jesus took our sin and all the bad we deserved, so that we could have all His good!

Jesus was perfectly good. He obeyed all of God’s laws completely. So He deserved all God’s blessings. We were sinners. We couldn’t obey God’s laws completely. And we deserved punishment and death, so we can have all of His blessings.

Here’s what happened at the Exchange:

  • Jesus was CURSED that we might be BLESSED (Gal 3:13-14)
  • Jesus became POOR so that we might be RICH (2 Cor 8:9)
  • Jesus was SHAMED that we might be GLORIFIED (Isa 53:3)
  • Jesus was FORSAKEN that we might be ACCEPTED (Matt 27:46; Eph 1:5-6)
  • Jesus was PUNISHED so that we might be FORGIVEN  (Isa 53:6)
  • Jesus was WOUNDED so that we might be HEALED (Isa 53:5b)
  • Jesus was made SIN that we might be RIGHTEOUS (2 Cor 4:21)
  • Jesus DIED that we might be ALIVE (Isa 53:12b)

Last Supper

Jesus introduces the New Covenant Meal

Every Sunday, we celebrate the Holy Communion. The Holy Communion is also known as the New Covenant Meal. Jesus tells us to do this as often as we can, in remembrance of Him.

What is the significance of the New Covenant meal?

Not a snack. Not a ritual. Not a magic formula. To remember what Jesus has done on the Cross — the Cross Exchange.

The night Jesus was betrayed, He sat down for supper with his disciples to celebrate the Passover.

Jesus knew He was going to die on the cross, and on that cross, He will be cutting the New Covenant with God.

As they were eating at the table, Jesus did 2 things:

  • Took the BREAD and broke it, giving it to His disciples

He said: “This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.”

  • Took the CUP, gave to His disciples

Saying: “In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”

What the bread and cup symbolizes?

BREAD: Jesus’ Body was broken so mine can be healed and whole

  • The unleavened bread had no yeast, was baked, pierced and striped; Jesus broke it before giving it to the disciples
  • On the cross: Jesus’ body would be torn apart for us (broken). It would be whipped (striped) and pierced (by the soldier’s spear).
  • All the bad things/punishments we deserved fell on Jesus, so that we can have all the blessings of the Cross Exchange.
  • Isaiah 53:5 But He was wounded for our transgressions (wrong doings), He was bruised for our iniquities (sins); the chastisement (punishments) for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.
  • When we eat the bread, we remember what Jesus has done on the cross for us.
    • If we are sick, we remember that we have Jesus’ healing.
    • If we are poor, we remember that we have Jesus’ riches.
    • If we are feeling forsaken, we remember that we are accepted in Jesus.

CUP: Jesus’ Blood was shed for my complete forgiveness and righteousness

  • Just like the Passover Lamb’s blood was spread over the Israelites’ door posts, keeping them safe from the angel of death, Jesus’ shed blood caused God’s punishment and judgment for our sins to pass over (Exodus 12:13)
  • Jesus paid our punishment with His blood.
  • Matthew 26:28 This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
  • When we drink the cup, we remember that what Jesus has done on the cross for us.
    • He took our punishment, so that we are forgiven
    • He was made sin that we are righteous
    • He was shamed that we are glorified
  • Under this New Covenant, it’s no longer about what we do or don’t do, but everything about what Jesus has done on the cross for us!
  • Every time we eat of the bread and drink of the cup, we proclaim the death of Christ! We remember the exchange on the Cross!
  • We also proclaim that we are part of God’s covenant people.

Suggested ACTIVITIES: Covenant Meal / Holy Communion

Pass out the bread and the cup.

  1. Hold up the bread. Say, “This bread symbolizes the body of Jesus that was broken for us so that we can enjoy His wholeness and healing. If anyone of you has a sickness, imagine Jesus on the cross with the same sickness … the same headache, or pain or flu. He took it all for you. So that today, you have His divine health.”
  2. Pray: Thank you Jesus that Your body was broken so mine can be healed and whole. Amen.
  3. Eat the bread.
  4. Hold up the cup. Say, “This cup represents the blood of Jesus that was shed on the cross for you and me. This blood paid the punishment of our sins. So today we don’t need to be punished anymore. All our sins are forgiven and we can stand righteous before God.
  5. Pray: Thank you Jesus that Your blood was shed so that I can be completely forgiven and righteous before You.
  6. Drink the cup.

All glory to God!

LIFE through CHRIST!

Because of Jesus’ obedience, we are saved. We are spared from God’s wrath. Only thing we need to do is to “believe” and to have faith in His blood that shed on the cross. 

Now, by believing in Him, we will have Eternal Life (John 3:16). This is the Life that we have through CHRIST. 

IMG_20171025_132015_796_wm
Romans 6:23 & Romans 5:17

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. –Romans 6:23 NIV

For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive God’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Jesus Christ! –Romans 5:17 NIV

How wonderful and amazing the Love of God is to us. When we, humans are created, His main purpose is for humans to worship Him. Now, we all know that worship is vague– vague in its description, whether in acts, deeds or words, but main result or end goal is — to give God glory.

Since in the beginning, we are good and pleasant in the eyes of God as we are created in His own image and likeness (Gen 1:27). We are His masterpiece. He was so happy of our creation. It was all very good in His eyesight (Gen 1:31). Well in fact, because he was satisfied –He rested on the seventh day (Gen 2:2).

As we read Genesis, we can see that we are created out of Love, Passion and Determination.  When the “fall of man” came into picture because of disobedience (Gen 3), sin came to destroy our relationship to God — Our “nearness” to God blocked by sin — we are condemned! God’s wrath is upon us. We are dead. 

For thousands of years, we are doomed to hell as sin reigned in this fallen world. But because of we are created out of God’s great Love, His faithfulness supersede. He made it possible for us to be lift up from God’s wrath and condemnation. 

He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus (John 3:16).

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. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 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.

John 3:16‭-‬18 NIV

God made it easy and possible for us, to have our relationship to Him back

Because of Jesus’ obedience, we are saved. We are spared from God’s wrath. Only thing we need to do is to “believe” and to have faith in His blood that shed on the cross. 

Now, by believing in Him, we will have Eternal Life (John 3:16). This is the Life that we have through CHRIST. 

Jesus Christ paid the price that we need to pay. All because of God’s Great Love, Grace is given. For us to have Life through CHRIST!

All glory to God!💖

The Creation

All creation, oblivious to it or not, was designed to manifest and testify the beauty and glory of its Creator.

I refuse to believe that the whole universe was created in a willy-nilly way.

Everything from the smallest subatomic particle to the hypergiant red star;

from the blue sky and colorful rainbow in the sky to the darkest abyss of the oceans;

from the simplest bacteria to the complex human beings;

from the greatest galaxies with millions of moon, planets and stars to our humble planet called earth;

everything was created with extreme detail in an ungraspable wisdom and is sustained with great strength and power.

All creation, oblivious to it or not, was designed to manifest and testify the beauty and glory of its Creator.

Great is Thy Faithfulness

Great is Thy Faithfulness, Lord unto me!

Lyrics by: Thomas Chisholm

Music by: William Runyan

Great Is Thy faithfulness, O God my Father!

There is no shadow of turning with Thee;

Though changest not, 

Thy compassions, they fail not

As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.

Great Is Thy faithfulness,

Great Is Thy faithfulness,

Morning by morning new mercies I see;

All I have needed Thy hand hath provided

Great is Thy Faithfulness, Lord unto me!

Summer and winter, 

and springtime and harvest,

Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above,

Join with all nature in manifold witness

To Thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love.

Pardon for Sin and a peace that endureth,

Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide,

Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow

Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

His Love

God’s love for us is independent from our love for Him.

The abundance of our love for God does not increase His love for us.

The meagerness of our love for God does not decrease His love for us.

God’s love for us is independent from our love for Him.

His love is unchanging.

It is unconditional.

It is everlasting.

This kind of love compels us to love.

We loved Him because He first loved us.
