Grace to you, and peace, from GOD our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank my GOD, making mention of thee always in my prayers, Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints; That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. (Phm 1:3-6)
We love Him because He first loved us. We love the brethren, because we are members one of another. We love those who are lost, not willing that any should perish, but that all would repent and believe unto Salvation. We look for the good things of GOD, and every perfect gift which the Father of lights bestows on His children, not for the things of this world, the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life, which will pass away when He judges this sinful and broken world, and takes us Home to be with Him.
Until that day, we are to communicate our love and faith, not just in words, but in action. We are called to minister to those around us who are hurting and in need, representing His Kingdom and doing that which He directs to accomplish His will and work in this world. We are commanded to love one another, as members of His body, to equip, exhort, and encourage every member to those good works He has prepared us to do as we disciple one another in His Word. We are commissioned, as His ambassadors and ministers of reconciliation, to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to this lost and dying world, and as we go, sharing the Good News of reconciliation and repentance with those we meet that they might believe and have life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
