People write books, plays, and movies because they are inspired to do so, or feel they have something to say that more than a few people need to hear. Those books, plays, and movies can go to places and reach people that they could never reach.
The most excellent evangelistic tool we can use to win the world over is the love we show and demonstrate to our fellow believers. The world is full of hate, selfish ambitions, lack of character, and an absent moral compass; these attributes keep people divided and nations in perpetual enmity with themselves. However, I am convinced that most people want to live in peace and get along with everyone but do not know how to do that. I submit to all that a strong vertical relationship with God, through Jesus Christ, will manifest stable horizontal relationship with others in our lives.
Through observation of people and our behavior towards each other, the Holy Spirit revealed to me that our problem is; we lack heart knowledge and the understanding that God is Love.
In this book, I display that the measure of the heart of a Christian is love, 365 days a year (366 on leap year). I show that all people are loveable. What do people see when they look at those who claim to be followers of Jesus Christ? What are we speaking when we are in front of people? Love is the sound that all who claim salvation through Jesus Christ must make.
LIFE IS A GIFT TO BE USED FOR GOD’S GLORY
Our calling is to let the world see His glory through us.
Understand our purpose. Our purpose is to accept the finished and redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the Cross. We must realize the blood purchased us, and we must reflect the Glory of God in the earth. God’s desire is for us to learn about Him, and in that process, we discover who we are and enter into His rest. (KJV John 17:3).
The gift of life comes with responsibility and places us into an exchange, or trading system. Jesus exchanged or took our death and gave us His life, took our guilt, and gave us His freedom. We received Christ’s righteousness for our unrighteousness, and for that, I tell the Lord, Thank You!
We received everlasting life when we agreed to trade. God received much less in the trade than we did. However, there is something about the heart of God; He was willing to pay for what we could not pay for ourselves. If many understood what we have received in the gift of life, they would try to live it much better.
Define the “Glory of God.”
The Glory of God is defined through the Word becoming flesh; therefore, when we study and practically apply the Word as a corresponding action, our life reflects His glory in the earth, and we become a living word, read by all people we come in contact with
A Greater Ruler Will Measure Your Life
In God’s Holy Word, we find the standards of living for every person who has accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior. Holiness is the acceptable standard that pleases God. Holiness is living life in obedience to the instructions from God in the scriptures. Holiness is following the foundation laid by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, scriptures written by the early Ecclesia with Christ as the “Chief Corner Stone.”
God provides us with the grace to live a righteous life through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.
“His divine power has given us everything needed for life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us by his glory and goodness.
Thus, he has given us, through these things, his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of lust and may become participants in the divine nature.” (NRSV, 2 Peter 1:3-4).
Living as a human being in a fallen state is about survival. However, true survival comes through surrendering to the will of God. For the unsaved people, it’s a “dog eat dog world,” living for the moment. Therefore, when Christians have this attitude, it means there has not been a total surrender to God and yielding of will to live for Christ.
We need strength and spiritual power to love people whose ways, behavior and attitudes are harmful, and also people who try to use and mistreat us. Some people call this the ability to love the unlovable. However, the measure of our relationship with God is contingent upon our ability to live the higher moral code before believers and non-believers.
Living from a sacrificial position allows us to embrace the love of God and to extend that love to others. For God so loved the world that He gave his Son; that whosoever believeth in Him, may not perish, but may have everlasting life” When God lays the Love ruler beside your life, how will you measure up?
