Draw Near to God

General article by T-Ralph

Beloved, nothing should stop you from drawing nearer to God. You should enjoy all the goodness of being close to Him.

let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
Hebrews 10:22

The least of all, don't let guilt take you away from God. Come closer to Him in assurance of faith and a clean conscience because of Christ's Blood that has washed you clean and clear of all transgressions.

Beloved, God wants you nearer. And, as you draw nearer, He also comes closer. ...
Jesus made a profound statement that we should all consider, accept and appreciate.

Therefore I say to you, her sins, which are many, are forgiven, for she loved much. But to whom little is forgiven, the same loves little.
Luke 7:47

The woman in question expressed so much love to Jesus because she realized how much she has been forgiven. The moment we understand that because of the sacrifice of Christ, we have been forgiven so much (past, present and future), then, we respond back in love to the Creator who loves us so much.

Therefore, it isn't about your love for God but His love for you. Meditate and understand His love for you, then, your heart will grow in love for Him.
Beloved, it has never been about your love for God but His love for you. The very salvation you have was because of His love for you.

In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins.
1 John 4:10

God loved the world that He sent His Son. The Genesis of salvation is based on love. Our love for God didn't compel Him to send His Son, it was His love for the world. Even while we were sinners, God loved us.

That is real love. Therefore, meditate on His love. It is in His love that we live, move and have our existence. ...

Worrying does no good

General article by T-Ralph

The Scriptures advises that we should not worry one bit. If God doesn't have it all under control, He wouldn't have said so.

Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
(Matthew 6:27, NIV)

Worrying about something wouldn't solve anything. That's why the Scriptures says we should pray, rather than worry.

God has already gone ahead to make every crooked way straight. And He is making everything work together for your good. Therefore, do not worry. ...

Give a Helping Hand Now

Beloved, don't restrict your heart to help when you can offer to help. Be willing to give your help at anytime and as much as you possibly can.

The life of a Christian is that of love. We live by love every single day. This love is an expressive love, and not just words alone.

Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ

Share your burdens with one another. You're part of the body of Christ. You're home; you're amongst your family. Treat each other as the family of God.

As such, care genuinely for one another. Share in your neighbors burden and help as much as you can. There is much fruit to gain when the church helps one another.
God's love for you is so strong beyond anything, any sin, trial or tribulation. His love is far greater and bigger than anything else.

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?
Romans 8:35

The Lord is your Refuge

Jesus is the Christ and He is your all

General article by T-Ralph

Jesus asked Peter a very important question and his answer was epic.

He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Peter answered and said to Him, 'You are the Christ.'
Mark 8:29

Jesus went on to declare that flesh and blood hadn't revealed this Truth unto Peter. This Truth and revelation came from the Father above. It was God who declared that Jesus is His beloved Son in whom He is well pleased as the Holy Spirit descended on Him.

Beloved, see Jesus as your all. If you're sick, see Jesus as your Healer; if you're broke, see Jesus as your Provider... Whatever it is, Jesus is the Christ and He is the Anointed One to save you. ...
