This weekend culminated into SEVERAL simultaneous events and I was forced to choose amongst them.

For starters , my eldest son’s acceptance to Morehouse College (Atlanta, Ga) means that he must (should) attend the annual “Accepted Students Weekend.” Since a parent must attend as well, guess where I am? This weekend is also the annual VCU Alumni Reunion weekend in Richmond, VA. Guess where I am not?

Oh, it gets fun…Tonight, my two older sons are escorts at a black tie event in Baltimore, MD. Guess who’s driving them there to make sure all is well? Sunday morning, I preach the word at church at 10am, then pick up the sons in Baltimore, drop them off at home, then I am off to Dulles International Airport to travel to Europe for a job-related assignment. I return to the states on Good Friday. Oh, since I have been gone over the past couple of days juggling priorities, I do have to stop by the office for a couple of hours to prepare for the European trip.

Did I mention picking up taxes today? Oops…need to do that too and sign and mail them by the 15th.

Hears the good news…I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! – Phil 4:13

You can too!!

Today, we concluded a 3-month long teaching series titled “The God-Kind of Love.” In its two forms, we learned that our love that resides on the inside must be visibly seen on the outside. To this end, be sure to show others (thru actions, words and deeds) that we love them as God loves us. We can make this world a much better place through our love. 1Corinthians 13 clearly shows that love is the key ingredient and will overcome all of the ills of this world.

Demonstrate your love today!!

Beloved, today we completed our 10-week teaching series to explain the simplicity of God’s love.  In the Book of 1 John 4, we studied and learned in verses 7 to 21 that GOD IS LOVE. His love is manifested in two ways:

1. Agape (noun) – unconditional and without strings, and

2. Philia (verb) – tender and affectionate love.

Our Heavenly Father moved from compassion to action when He gave His only begotten Son, Jesus, to become the Saviour of the world. This is/was an act that is unconditional. Likewise, as ministers of reconciliation, God commands that we do the same. That is, love those (unconditional) within our sphere of influence. Since “no man has seen God,” He is counting upon us to represent Him in the earth.

As you meditate and reflect upon His Word and His will for your life, remember to love others as Christ loved us. It is unconditional and tender in nature.

This past Sunday’s message was a celebration of our local government and civic leaders that promote growth, development and programs for the betterment of our local community. This is done through service.

In our study and teaching from the Books of Philippians 2:1-11 and Galatians 5:13-18, we learned that to take focus OFF of self and serving others is key to our fulfillment AND is a mandate from God. Service to others is a demonstration of love – The ‘God-Kind’ of Love. It is motivated by our desire to seek the highest good in others.

Find someone to serve today and experience the fulfillment that only God can provide. See and experience the difference that you will make!

What are you thoughts on this?

In our current teaching series, we learned that the “God-Kind” of Love is an expression of God’s unconditional love. It is the kind of love that comes without reasons, without strings and without us having to earn it. God’s awesome love for all that He created is mind-blowing indeed!! His love compelled Him to give His only son – Jesus.

We show our love for Jesus through our love for others. That is why we specifically studies two parables: The Lost Sheep and The Prodigal Son. In both instances, Jesus used natural examples to extract a spiritual meaning. His desire is that ALL come to experience His love and compassion. In a group of 100, if one strays off, Jesus showed us how and why we should go after the one. These are powerful teachings and lessons to learn during this journey called ‘life.’

I encourage you to continue your studies in the books of Luke 15:1-7 and 15:11-32.

During the current preaching series titled “The God-Kind of Love,” I am teaching from the book of 1 John 4:7-21 on the importance and impact of L-O-V-E. The unconditional LOVE that God demonstrates towards us is powerful, life-changing, comforting, impactful and inspirational. In part 4 of this teaching, we are learning that:

Our Love for Jesus is exemplified by:

a. ACCEPT THE GIFT ( Jesus is gift that God gave to us because of His love for us)

b. THROUGH OUR LIGHT ( as light enters, darkness must flee)

c. ACKNOWLEDGE HIM AS OUR TEACHER

We concluded this teaching by stating that God LOVES F-A-T people: Faithful, Available, and Teachable.

How will you demonstrate your LOVE for God today?

JESUS

Our love toward others must be the visible manifestation of God. He is love (1 John 4:7-8) and His unconditional love for us is powerful testament of His character, attributes, integrity and awesome care.images (70)

Love others as you love yourself and do unto others as you would have them do unto you (Matthew 7:12). It could change someone’s life!!
