A blog devoted to God and helping fellow Christians keep positive in Faith and in Christ.
I just want to be able to accept whatever he gives to me this year, and be able to view it through Christian eyes. I want to be able to see everything for what it is—a learning experience. I want to be able to diminish, and let Him get bigger and bigger in my life.
Look at your life. Look at the love you give to others. Think about who those people are. Are they your family members? Your friends? Your significant other, or someone you like? Are they people in your class who seem nice? Are they people you see on the street who are kind or in need?
If your answer is yes to all of these, you are on the right path. But Jesus wants us to do something more radical:
"But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. […] If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ love those who love them." —Luke 6:27-28, 32
Love your ENEMIES. Wow. How powerful. Love those who seek to destroy you. Love those who put slander on your name, and those who gossip about you. Love those who give you disdainful glances. Love the ones who look down on you, who would love nothing more than to see you suffer, who HATE you. LOVE them.
And I don’t mean “love” them and then talk about them when they’re not listening. I don’t mean “love” them, but seek revenge because thats fair. You must give 100% love to these people that are not your friends, are not your family, and may even be a flat-out adversary to your spirituality! LOVE THEM. Because through your love, they will see God’s glory and His power and ultimately HIS love. Because through your love, you will strengthen your own spirituality and ability to reflect God. Because this is what Jesus wants from us as Christians. Because faith is not just about believing, but about obedience. And because, all in all, HE LOVED US FIRST.
I’ve been called by God to learn about the Mormon church, to what purpose I cannot yet know (although I have a strong feeling it is to be baptized in the Church).
If you are Mormon and have a strong grasp on Mormon fundamentals and beliefs, possibly as a missionary, I would love to talk to you and learn all I can about the LDS church!
Please send me an ask, or respond to this post if you would like to talk. I appreciate it greatly! Thank you! :)
