LOVE WINS, EVERY TIME!
“God allows what He hates to accomplish what He loves…”
A great quote that has been used by many different individual people, to respond to those folks who may ask why Papa God allows terrible and absolutely horribly awful things to happen…I’ve seen this quoted this past week by some of the family members of the victims of the racially motivated, murderous actions of an individual filled with anger, malice and hate. The kind of hate that can only be overcome with the love and goodness of Papa God, who Himself put on display, when He offered up His precious Son, Jesus Christ, who was without sin, upon a cruel cross, filled with abject shame and humiliation, to bear and carry all of humankind’s sin and transgressions, in order to overcome the darkness and evil that’s within each and every heart of humankind! Papa God’s only begotten laid His life down, as a ransom payment, so that He could purchase us, to be set free from sin and its penalty, taking us out of the darkness into His Holy Light, by removing every transgression and purifying every heart of all sin and iniquity, including all envy, jealousy, prejudice, resentment, hate, malice and murderous thoughts; and replacing it all with His unfailing love, undeserved mercy and abounding grace and His great loving kindness, so that, we can live in His presence of perfect peace and everlasting joy for eternity!
It has been quite encouraging and incredibly inspirational to see Papa God’s people of Mother Emanuel AME, as well as, all the people of Charleston, SC and beyond, allow His goodness and love to overcome and conquer the evil that was sent to steal, kill and destroy…When the people of God do this, love wins every time!
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Don’t let evil conquer you, but conquer evil by doing good. (Romans 12:21 NIV, NLT) It would be a good thing to take in the entire chapter of Romans12…Blessings…
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 06/20/15- “Love That Endures!” (1Chronicles 16:34)
Premise Question: Just what are we, The Company of The Redeemed, to give thanks to The LORD for; and how are we to express our sincere gratitude and thanks to Him?
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good! His faithful love endures forever.
(1 Chronicles 16:34 NLT)
Show and express to The LORD your full gratitude, by offering up to Him, from a thankful heart, true spiritual praise and worship, honoring Him with reverential awe, for He is beneficently virtuous and righteous! His unfailing, undying, eternally enduring, unqualified and unparalleled, being incomparable love and gracious favor for us, which is expressed towards us continually, is permanently established and without measure.

Bottom Line: We, every member of The Company of The Redeemed, should with great rejoicing, gladness and joy, as individuals and also collectively as those who’ve been redeemed, shall in every way, by utilizing every kind of expression, ought to offer up continually, our deepest and greatest, most heartfelt gratitude of thanks, with our praise and worship of Him, and in our obedient walk and work for Him. We are to announce and let it be known everywhere, far and wide, and close by, letting everyone in the whole earth know how much Papa God loves humankind and how grateful and thankful we, His people, are for all that The LORD has done, is doing and is yet to do for all of those who will believe and receive Him as LORD! We praise and worship Him in His Holiness, for He is worthy to be praised, worshipped, honored and glorified! We lift His Name high, because His love, mercy and gracious favor endures throughout every generation, for He is faithful and true to every promise He has spoken in His Everlasting Word! His goodness is filled with His great comfort, His all surpassing peace and the fullness of His joy, which is our strength!
