Be the Change


Love has no meaning…unless it ignites action.

(Listen to my song “Salvation” by clicking HERE)


1 John 3:16-18

The way we came to know love was that he laid down his life for us; so we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. If someone who has worldly means sees a brother in need and refuses him compassion, how can the love of God remain in him? Children, let us love not in word or speech but in deed and truth.


What more is there to say?

Jesus showed us what pure Unconditional Love is…by responding to persecution and even a torturous death…with love and forgiveness.

He showed us that death does not have the final say…but that it leads to transformation, resurrection and new life.

While on the cross…even though no one asked for forgiveness or deserved it…Jesus freely gave it!

Gaze for a moment upon Jesus hanging on the cross…while still extending unconditional love. This is how much God loves each of us.

You do not have to earn it.

It’s given.

It’s Grace.

Accept it.

Allow it to saturate your heart.

Allow it to change your life.

How can you resist sharing it with others?

    Amen brother, great meditation on John 3:16. God’s grace is amazing. But I really want to spend more time meditating on the resurrection.
