He knows it all

God knows everything about you. The good, the bad and the ugly. He knows those things you keep doing wrong, despite knowing they’re wrong.

In fact, God has known this since before the world began. And yet Romans 8:29-30 tells us that even though He already knew how badly you would fail, He chose to make you and die a brutal death on the cross for you, to bring you into His family and enable you to go to heaven. That is how important you are to Him. That is how much He loves you.

Take time to remember this and praise Him.

#bullyboy

A primary school boy is heartlessly bullied for years. The teachers do nothing. He often comes home in tears. Suddenly, he asks if he can invite the bully boy for a playdate. Stunned, his mom asks why? “Because he has no friends”. And the Kingdom of God moves forward.

Jesus tell us to “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. Let them bring out the best in you, not the worst” – Matthew 5:44 (http://bit.ly/2O5pvjO). That’s really difficult to do.

Who does Jesus want you to love and pray for? Ask him for the strength to do it and see how God works.

Tall Girl

Jodi is super tall for her age, and her peers don’t let her forget it. We watch Jodi’s journey to self-acceptance, standing tall and proud about who she is.

The world speaks a lot about loving ourselves. In Matthew 22:39 (http://bit.ly/2NKlRvs), Jesus puts a spin on this concept. He is basically saying this: in the same way that we worry about ourselves – we are always thinking about our well-being, about what we want and need – we should be loving and concerned about others in this way just as much.

How do you allow Jesus’ love to change you AND those around you at the same time?

LOVE IS

We talk about love a lot. So much so that the meaning has been lost a little bit. It’s easier to say we love something than it is to live love and treat each other with love.

MiCasa puts it perfectly in their song “LOVE IS” (http://bit.ly/32oqTmn):
“So love is so much more than a feelin’
‘Cause feelings they drift like the wind.
See love is so much more than a passion
‘Cause passion doesn’t last forevermore.”

Jesus’ love FOR US is more than just a feeling or passion. It’s forever. It’s never-ending. It’s unconditional. It’s sacrificial.

Read 1 John 4:7-11 (http://bit.ly/2MlBits)
