#BLACKHISTORYMONTH "No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, & if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite." - Nelson Mandela

Quoting one of my favorite #Beatles songs; "Love is all you need." We’ve perhaps heard that many times, yet I wanted to take a few moments to share this reminder with you that love genuinely does make ALL the difference, especially when it’s the love of God being referred to! I believe today if we are ever going to share God’s love with those around us, we first need to experience it in our own lives.
As I was reading various scriptures having to do with the love God has for us, I came across the following which was a prayer the Apostle Paul was offering to God on behalf of the church at Ephesus while he was in prison for preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Ephesians 3:16-21 (NKJV)
16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through #faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height– 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 20 Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ #Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
While we may face persecution and challenges from this world we live in, there is something that will keep us through the storms and trials of life, and it is the unending, unfathomable, unexplainable love that God has for every one of us, & yes, even for this World.
The primary purpose of this letter to the #Ephesians was to talk about a “mystery,” and of course, this mystery was not intended to be kept that way. Paul’s purpose was to explain and reveal it by sharing about this thing called “the church” whose purpose it was to express the fullness of Christ on the Earth.
One of the ways this would be done was by uniting both Jew & Gentile which of course was another aspect of this great mystery. (Eph. 3:5) It had never been done before like this; yet, God was maturing a people who would take the victory Christ won at #Calvary

Series Quote - With The Heart - The Mystery Of The Kingdom "The mystery of the kingdom is simple;
THE HEART is the motivating factor of our life and that motivation is backed by beliefs.
Beliefs are a result of DOMINATING THOUGHTS and DOMINATING FEELINGS." - Pastor Nathan
I'm super excited about this next series coming to @grace.qc - You won't want to miss what God will be speaking during this season. A GOD DREAM makes the impossible commonplace. We rely on His strength and not our own.

Tomorrow will no doubt be filled with posts of Happy Valentines Day and sentiments of love for others. Because of the unintentional overshadowing of the start to the Lenten season, I wanted to share a few thoughts today. ---- The Lenten season differs in many ways from the Advent season: we don’t have a hanging of the greens, we don’t sing carols, and instead of anticipating the birth of the Christ child, we prepare ourselves for His death and resurrection. Now, I admit that putting it that way, this all sounds rather gloomy in contrast— but we can rejoice because we know He has risen, He has risen indeed! “I appeal to you, therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”—Romans 12:1-2 ---- Paul writes to the Romans that we believers are called to study, worship, and renew our minds and in so doing, we may know the perfect will of God. Just as we marvel over the circumstances of Christ’s entrance into our world during Advent, we can also find ourselves amazed at the ability, creativity, and love of God. During Lent, we ponder how Jesus left this world only to rise from the grave to sit at God’s holy, heavenly hand. ---- After spending forty days being tempted by Satan in the wilderness, Jesus stayed busy. During His last week on earth: he cleared the temple, cursed the fig tree, teaches the Sermon on the Mount—and that’s just the first two days. In fact, the majority of the Gospels focus on this latter part of Christ’s life. ---- In the days and weeks ahead, as we prepare our minds and hearts to concentrate on Christ’s death and resurrection, reflect on Lenten seasons of years gone by. What did God do in your life then—whether times were good, bad, or downright ugly, what beauty did the Lord create during Lent that year? Perhaps the idea of truly celebrating Lent is new to you this year. How have you seen the Lord at work in your life thus far as we approach Easter Sunday?
