God Saves

The Source of your life is Love.

~~~

Psalm 34:19

The Lord is close to the broken-hearted, saves those whose spirit is crushed.

~~~

Our culture teaches us from childhood that winning is all that matters.

Win, win, win…at all costs!

So if I lose…then I am a failure.

Of course when I win…others lose.

But Jesus says nothing about winning.

He tells us to love all people…as well as ourselves.

Jesus even tells us to love our enemies!

Jesus says that instead of winning…our objective in life should be to extend love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion.

Instead of a “win-lose” scenario…it is a “win-win.”

When we join the so-called losers, the outcasts, and the ones who are suffering…we know that Christ is near to us because those are the people that he spent his time with.

Jesus said, “Whatever you did for the least of these, you did for me” (Matthew 25:40).

And so if you are suffering or feeling rejected…if you are at the end of your rope…know that God is reaching out to you with a loving embrace.

Let go…and let God begin to heal and transform you with a love that is unconditional and unending.
