Love for All

By Jill Briscoe

“How is it that You, being a Jew, ask a drink from me, a Samaritan woman?”  For Jews have no dealings with Samaritans.  ~ John 4:9

Start talking about things the other person understands.  Jesus started with a bucket!  Next, make sure you show interest in people as people!  Jesus cared about the Samaritan woman’s personal problems, and she knew it!  Don’t be sidetracked.  The woman wanted to start arguing about which church to go to, but Jesus reminded her that it was the Person she worshiped that was important, not the place of worship.
Don’t be shocked.  Know your world and what’s going on out there; there is a difference between isolation and separation.  Jesus was never isolated from sinners, but He was always separate from sin.  Next, realize that sin is a symptom of the real problem – a soul-thirst only God can quench.  Tell people that Jesus is the answer to their thirsty quest.  Don’t be afraid to talk about salvation, souls, and sin; Jesus did.
Talk naturally.  You should be able to talk about your faith as freely as you do about your family.  Jesus made spiritual talk easy and comfortable for others, because it was easy and comfortable for Him.  Be sure not to put on a special voice when you talk about God – use your usual one!
And, finally, don’t run after your prospective converts; Jesus didn’t.  When they’ve had enough, let them go – but pray for them.  And then watch them come back with their friends.  What joy!  Talking of truth satisfies as nothing else can.  You may even conquer your appetite the way Jesus did, just with the fullness of it all!

Take my voice, and let me sing
Always, only for my King.
Take my lips, and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee.

Birthday Wisdom

I am another year older and hope that someday I can also say another year wiser {wink}. 

I do know that with encouragement from the Lord, I can do anything. I hope that this year will be filled with many more good times, great friends, and opportunities to serve the Lord.

Most importantly I want to leave you with a verse that really stuck out to me. No matter how many birthdays you have under your belt, being born again in Christ is the only thing that really matters.

Jesus answered and said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God." John 3:3

Have a fantastic day, lovelies!

Sunday Love

Hello friends! I am back from vaca and I've been sick all weekend. Stay tuned for some outfit posts I took in Italy!!

The Hero Of Heaven
Max Lucado

The hero of heaven is God.  Angels don’t worship mansions or glittering avenues.  God is not the grand marshal of the parade; he is the parade!  He’s not the main event; he’s the only event!  His Broadway features a single stage and star:  Himself.  He hosts the only production and invites every living soul to attend.
At this very moment God issues invitations by the millions.  He says, “Come, enjoy me forever.”  Yet many people have no desire to do so.  He speaks; they cover their ears.  He commands; they scoff.  They don’t want him telling them how to live.  They regard his son as a joke and the cross as utter folly.  They spend their lives telling God to leave them alone.
Jesus offers the invitation in Matthew 11:28:  “Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”
