Love Wins

When you do what is just and compassionate…you will never regret it.

Isaiah 49:4

Though I thought I had toiled in vain, for nothing and for naught spent my strength, yet my right is with the LORD, my recompense is with my God.

When you are called to do the right thing…what is just for the oppressed and the poor…you may not see “success” in the eyes of the world.

Remember…we’re not living for the world but for God.

We have a great role model in Jesus.

To the world…he appeared to be the ultimate loser.

He was rejected or abandoned by just about everyone (except for a few women), and was executed in the most cruel manner.

However…appearances are deceiving.

Jesus’ example is still being followed 2000 years after his death.

His teachings are still making a life-changing difference for many!

The way of Love is a force that patiently and persistently works.

It cannot be defeated.

This is the way of God.

It’s the way of Love.

Hang in there. New life is in the making!
