treesviewWelcome! I need your help to proclaim that God’s love and grace is greater than the Manson madness through tweets and email sharing the link to aboundinglove.org with family and friends. I pray, “That we may publish with a voice of thanksgiving and tell of all God’s wondrous works.” 1

BE AN INSPIRATION…

Many people write me unaware that the answers to their question are on my website. One such person named June had this response after hearing from me:

“You asked if I had been to aboundinglove.org, and I had not. I wasn’t aware of the site until you mentioned it. I have since been there and have watched the movie and am reading the books.

You are such an inspiration not only to me but to others as well. Thank you for sharing your life with us all. You are truly a blessing! I am glad that I have gotten with you.”

 

As you can see, June didn’t know about the website until I told her. Now, she can be an inspiration by letting her family and friends know about the site. Jesus said,

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”2

TWEET & EMAIL OTHERS…

It’s easy to be a witness to the others by including links like aboundinglove.org in your communication. It’s a way to let others know that Jesus loves them, and who may have never heard the Good News. Listen to June as she continues:

You see everything is new to me. No one ever told me about Jesus, and His love for me until I received your letter.

I wasn’t brought up in a Christian home. I has wonderful parents, they just didn’t go to church. My mother would drop us kids off at church and go back home. I was young and it scared me being there without her. Being raised out in the country (not being around a lot of people) made me painfully shy, so I started refusing to go. And I am ashamed to say that I raised my one and only son the same way.

You asked me if I had a NLT Bible. I do not, but I ordered one. I cannot wait to get started reading and receiving God’s word. I want to experience the love that you speak of. Thank you for your encouragement.”

I can assure you that your family and friends will thank you for letting them know about Jesus and His love.

IT’S ALL ABOUT LOVE…

Before Christ set me free, I was in bondage. I was experiencing emptiness, despair, desperation, loneliness and defeat plagued my mind. I needed love, acceptance, care, understanding, help and deliverance. Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was my remedy. He offers everyone his love, forgiveness and salvation.

To experience God’s love, we need to choose Jesus as our new Master and reject the old Master of drunkenness to the world, the flesh and the devil. Satan is the promoter of worldly addictions. His purpose is to keep his subjects enslaved. The apostle Paul said,

“Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around you like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Stand firm against him, and be strong in your faith.”3

Jesus is greater than Satan. His love gives power. His love provides forgiveness, mercy and freedom. His love fills the soul, stabilizes the emotions and gives purpose and power to achieve and excel. Jesus’ love builds relationships. It brings joy, peace, and rest in contrast to fear, anxiety and tension.

FAITH IN GOD’S LOVE…

Magnifying God’s love at the cross increases our faith. Jesus’ love became powerful and effective because He willingly died on the cross to provide redemption and atonement for the sins of the whole world.

For God loved the world so much that He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.4

The Bible is God’s love story to all mankind. For instance, Isaiah 53 tells of Chris’s suffering on the cross. I suggested to June the New Living Translation (NLT) because it is so easy to understand. As we hear the Word about Jesus and His love, faith comes. 5

Jesus’s love is perpetual, not just momentary. It stays with us day and night. It is with us in good days and bad days – when we are up and when we are down. Won’t you receive God’s love today?

A Prayer For You...

Father God, I love you. I come to you today in faith asking you to forgive my sins. Jesus, I believe in You, I believe you died on the cross for me, you shed Your innocent blood for me, You took my place and all the punishment that I deserved. I believe You died and were buried and on the third day You rose from the dead. Death could not hold you. You have conquered Satan and taken the keys of hell and death from him. I believe You did all of this for me because You loved me. I want to be a Christian. I want to serve You all the days of my life. I want learn how to live the new life that You have promised me. I receive You now, Jesus, and I give myself to You. Take me just the way I am, and make me what You want me to be.

Thank You, Jesus, for saving me. Fill me with You Holy Spirit and teach me everything I need to know. Now, I believe that I am saved, I have been born again, and I will go to heaven when I die. Father God, I am going to enjoy my journey and live for Your glory!
