OVERCOME HATE WITH LOVE
THE GOOD NEWS:
WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:
THE GOOD NEWS is that you’re not lost, you’re not alone, and faith is open for all to grasp and rely on because that is the way God has designed it to be. God’s Word is a road map that points the way to your destination if you so choose to study and apply it to your life. God’s Spirit is given freely because Jesus paid the price in full for our salvation.
Paul invites’ us to share in his revelation when he penned, “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved and gave himself for me.”(Galatians 2: 20-21, NIV). As we live out our purpose, faith is a magnifier of transformation that causes us to rely on the will of God to guide and direct us in His way. “Faith” is described this way, “The substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1, NKJV). Another translation describes “Faith” this way: “it is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It’s our handle on what we can’t see…” (Hebrews 11:1, MGS), it is THE GOOD NEWS.
God’s Word is written to us and about us, we are Gods’ prize possession and he has given His word to bless, teach and guide us, and to forgive and save us. Jesus says, “Come to me all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me…” (Matthew 11: 28-30, NKJV). Jesus so passionately taught and encouraged us through words and actions to learn of Him, therefore our hearts will be at peace; sharing THE GOOD NEWS. The greatest treasure of all is knowing that God saw the need to spare each of us for a reason, that reason is to become learners of Him, share his message of hope for a dying world and transform our thoughts and attitude in such a way that “Love” will become the guiding force in all we say and do. We must be diligent in searching and applying those things Jesus gave as a pattern to follow. THE GOOD NEWS brings us from the lower realm to a higher level in Christ Jesus and in that, we learn the true meaning and value to the words “Let us Love one another.”
