Every Life Matters to JESUS

maxresdefault  By Pastor Mike

On the news they were talking about the 12 policemen that were ambushed by snipers in Dallas. Five died and seven others were injured. This happened during a rally about a police shooting. There was one last week in Minneapolis I heard about when I was up there where another person got shot and killed by police. I prayed and will pray for all the people who lost loved ones in this crazy world. It’s happening more and more. JESUS wants it to stop.

The devil wants to always keep the prejudice alive in this country. He wants to get another civil war started only this time to have it with people against others of different color. The devil hates everybody and especially hates people who are living for JESUS and following JESUS.

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

GOD made the human race, not people of different races or different colors. We need to stand strong as Believers of the Truth to reach the lost of every color. Don’t be afraid to talk to anyone and everyone about JESUS. We need to keep looking at the hearts of people like JESUS does. That’s what matters to JESUS. That’s what should matter to us.

We have to stand strong for what we believe. We have to know deep down in our hearts that we believe the Truth. The Truth is the WORD. The Bible. JESUS loves everybody. JESUS heals everybody. HE delivers everybody. HE provides for all. The more we tell people about JESUS the more they will get a hold of HIM and HIS love. They will want to stop the hatred that’s out there. They will learn to love like JESUS loves. Are we that way?

You know what a chameleon is. It’s a reptile that changes colors from its environment. But it always is a chameleon no matter what color it is. Humans are humans no matter color they are. They’re still humans that need to be told about JESUS and HIS plan of salvation. JESUS did all HE did for everyone here on earth. HE wasn’t picking and choosing who HE died for. JESUS wants everyone to decide whom they will serve. As for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

Galatians 3:28

There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”

That’s the human race. It’s all about the choices we make. Do we want to be like JESUS and love everyone or do we want to pick and choose who we love and want to hang out with. Remember HE is no respecter of persons. It rains on the just and the unjust. HE treats everyone the same. Don’t matter who you are.

Ephesians 4:4-6

There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;

One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

The Cross

cross  By Pastor Mike

We should always remember the cross and what JESUS did on the cross. Also remember the beating, the suffering, and the humiliation HE went through. Never forget that HE went through all of this because HE loves us. I’ve seen crosses that are jewelry and I’ve even seen some churches display the cross with JESUS still on there. HE is not on the cross. HE IS ALIVE!!!!!

The Cross is a symbol of Life. JESUS chose us as HIS people, as HIS friends, as ones who need to be out there telling everyone about JESUS and the hope HE brings to everyone’s life.

Everything is based on the decisions we make. Decisions to whom you will serve this day. It’s up to us. No excuses. No blaming someone else. In Luke 23:32-43 we read about the two thieves that were next to JESUS. The one thief is like a lot of people today where they blame JESUS and want to use HIM for their benefit. They want JESUS to fill their wish list. Make sure our list is based on seeing the lost saved. People healed. People delivered. People building a relationship with JESUS.

We also need to deny ourselves and pick up our cross. Denying ourselves means to sacrifice what we want and give up our personal interests, our goals. Give up our will & accept GOD’s will – and make HIS Will joyful – make it a pleasure in your heart.

Remember if the cross didn’t happened we wouldn’t have the Blood and wouldn’t have the power for:

Healing in JESUS NAME

Deliverance in JESUS NAME

Comfort in JESUS NAME

Peace in JESUS NAME

Salvation in JESUS NAME

Redemption in JESUS NAME

Protection in JESUS NAME

Strength in JESUS NAME

Did you know the Cross is the greatest symbol of friendship.

John 15:13

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

John 19:30

“When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.”

So just before HE died, HE said, “It is finished.” The laying down of HIS life, sacrificing HIMSELF, for us. Now comes the plan of salvation. HIS work of redemption was over. HE took the punishment that belonged to us. ON the cross. Now HE is alive.
