For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world rulers of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavens.
Our battles, the wars we fight begin not in the physical but in the spiritual. Differences? Emotions!
What he/she has I do not. I want! So…
Difference breeds ‘strife’, to be in a more ‘favorable’ position is to be envied. In His-story there have been differences.
We can look in history when all in communities have done well. We can roam the Old Testament but more pointedly we can see what has happened since then.
Notable, is Nazi Germany where The original family of The LORD suffered immensely at the hands of others. By God’s grace, that came to an end.
The reason we mention that here is living as one erases what is and sets the path to the way things were meant to be.
We do not battle against what we see! What we DO NOT see acts on us. Has anyone seen ‘anger’ its characteristics yes! Anger? Sorrow?
How do they appear? Condition driven/led!.m
Have you seen Love? Not the cards, flowers, gifts… But, what is Love?
Love’s Characteristics we know. What is Love? From where does it come?
“No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and His Love is made complete in us.”
1 John 4:12
A gift? No! Love has given us THE Greatest gift!
There is a gift that was given to all Mankind by God The Father and that gift was His Son Jesus. All year, in every season Jesus is The celebration of God’s gift to this World in the form of Jesus. The book of John tells us that God so Loved us that He gave. John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
This gift of Love is available for all to receive. It is a gift that is for all eternity, but many have not received this gift and are not receiving the benefits that this gift of Love will bring into their life. Just as we give our gifts to those we love and they receive them and open them, God has given to mankind this gift of eternal life through His Son Jesus.
