I must admit – I battle piccadilly attitudes and unguarded moments, most every day. Get that yourself? I tend to think of “love” as my choice. But Christian agape love is a constant – with all peoples. I must guard my soul from fickle piccadillies (where I bend and accept tiny “small sins).
Entrance into God’s Home Heaven is going to be – Oh so very amazing! Wonderful! But getting there is difficult. Frankly, I doubt you ever will. What do you think?
There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. – Romans 8:1,37-39
All our life we will feel the pains of this world. That is a reality. After all, we are still human. The difference is: we have hope in Christ…way before He implemented Creation – His plan was always to “redeem” us back to Himself, to bring us to His salvation, to give us His strength and encouragement in this life
As we are raised up we will be given an “incorruptible” (everlasting) new body, like Christ’s resurrected body. Christ was the first, and we are next

The true believer is in Christ, “reborn from above” – never to be “unborn” again. The true believer will never again be under the condemnation of God. Ever. “That act of becoming born again — is an act of God upon our life. We don’t do it — He does it! And that is why it will never be undone.”
When we accept Christ, the whole universe becomes our family domain! We become a child of Creator God. Our new life, spirit and soul, begins eternal life as the Holy Spirit of God, part of the “three in one” mysterious Triune God, takes up residence in our body.
The theme running through the whole Bible is that Jesus, the perfect Lamb of God, loved us so much that He offered His life as a perfect sacrifice – for us. Jesus Christ is the only reason any of us, throughout all of history (past, present, or future), are able to be saved.
Oh the wonder of that love of our fathomless Creator, to save me in spite of my self-centered soul. Lost and rebellious, He chose me. Pursued and wooed, what mystery – grace. I said yes to Creator God. To know Him… is to love Him. I had to say yes to such love. How could […]

Save Yourself and us!” 40 But the other answered, and rebuking him said, “Do you not even fear God, since you are under the same sentence of condemnation? 41 And we indeed are suffering justly, […]
I so totally love the truth taught by the Apostle Paul – about becoming “a brand new creature”. Read for yourself 2 Corinthians 5:17 ¨Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.¨ – 2 Corinthians 5:17 This is what happens when a […]
Wow! To enter into the Kingdom of God – freely as His redeemed child. No cringing in shame, no shaking knees, sweating in fear, no burden of sinfulness before a Holy God. I can only imagine.
