"If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask GOD, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him." James 1:5

I LOVE GOD , I LOVE JESUS TOO ..... I JUST DON'T SEEM TO UNDERSTAND WHAT ALL THE " HOOPLA " IS ABOUT WHEN IT COMES TO PEOPLE AND GOD OR PEOPLE AND JESUS ..... I AM NOT PERFECT HOWEVER , I KNOW THAT WITHOUT THEM I WOULD NOT BE THE PERSON I AM TODAY ..... I ALSO KNOW THAT WITHOUT THEM I CAN BE SELF-CENTERED , INCONSIDERATE , SELFISH , DEMANDING , UNRULY AND JUST DOWNRIGHT MEAN ..... GOD'S WORD TELLS ME THIS IS TRUE WHEN I READ JOHN 15:5 , " I am the vine , you are the branches ; he who abides in ME and I in him , he bears much fruit , for apart from ME you can do nothing . " MY BROTHER JESUS AND MY FATHER GOD GIVE ME WHAT I CAN'T GIVE MYSELF OR OTHERS , UNCONDITIONAL LOVE AND GRACE ..... SO FAR IN LIFE I HAVE NOT MET ONE HUMAN BEING WHO COULD GIVE THOSE 2 ATTRIBUTES TO EITHER THEMSELVES OR OTHERS FOR ANY LENGTH OF TIME BEYOND A FEW HOURS OR DAYS ..... THAT'S BECAUSE ALTHOUGH WE ARE ALL GOOD AT TIMES AND WE DO GOOD THINGS SOMETIMES , WE CANNOT BE " GOOD ENOUGH " ..... JESUS CLARIFIES THIS FOR US WHEN HE SPEAKS IN MATTHEW 19:16-21 " Now a man came up to JESUS and asked , " Teacher , what good thing must i do to get eternal life ? '' " Why do you ask ME about what is good ? " JESUS replied . "There is only ONE who is good . If you want to enter life follow the commandments ." '' Which ones ? " , the man inquired . JESUS replied , " ' Do not murder , do not commit adultery , do not steal , do not give false testimony , honor your father and mother,' and ' love your neighbor as yourself . ' ''All these I have kept , " the young man said . "What do I still lack ? " JESUS answered , '' If you want to be perfect , go , sell all your possessions and give to the poor , and you will have treasures in heaven . Then come , follow ME . " ..... WE CANNOT MEASURE UP TO ANY PERFECT STANDARD .....THAT IS WHERE THE LORD CHRIST ENTERS INTO THE PICTURE .....THE UNCONDITIONAL LOVE AND GRACE GIVEN TO US MEET US RIGHT WHERE WE ARE IN LIFE AND TAKE OVER .....IT'S LIKE YOU'RE WALKING AND WALKING AND WALKING AND WALKING , AND THEN YOU START TO GET TIRED SO YOU NEED TO STOP WALKING BECAUSE YOU'RE TOO TIRED TO CARRY ON , BUT YOU KNOW YOU HAVE TO WALK SOME MORE .....WELL AT THIS POINT YOU CAN EITHER GIVE UP AND STOP WALKING ALL TOGETHER OR GIVE IN AND LET GOD AND JESUS DO THE WALKING FOR YOU .....IT HAPPENS SOONER OR LATER TO EVERYONE .....I CAN ONLY PRAY IT HAPPENS TO YOU SOONER THAN LATER ( YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN ....BEFORE YOU DIE ) .....BECAUSE THINK ABOUT IT .....DO YOU REALLY KNOW WHERE YOU ARE GOING WHEN YOU DIE ? MAYBE YOU DO .....BUT MAYBE YOU DON'T ..... GOD AND JESUS KNOW AND THEY WANT YOU TO KNOW TOO .....JESUS TELLS US THIS IN 1 TIMOTHY 2:3-6 , "This is good , and pleases GOD our SAVIOUR , who wants all men to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one GOD and one mediator between GOD and men , the man JESUS CHRIST , who gave HIMSELF as a ransom for all men -the testimony given in its proper time . "..... GOD REALLY DOES LOVE ALL MEN ," For GOD so loved the world that HE gave HIS one and only SON , that whoever believes in HIM shall not perish but have eternal life . " .....SO YOU SEE BELIEVING AND TRUSTING IN THE LORD JESUS IS NOT HARD TO DO .....IT DOESN'T MAKE US FREAKY EITHER .....IT JUST GIVES US WHAT WE CANNOT GIVE OURSELVES .....A GUARANTEE THAT WHEN WE DIE WE WILL SPEND ETERNITY IN HEAVEN WITH HIM AND GOD .....NOW THAT'S NO "HOOPLA " ...........................SUMMER
