Abounding Love

Posted by Cheryl on December 16, 2015 at 8:35 AM

Have A Wonderful & Blessed Wednesday!!! Abounding Love!!!

 

1Thessalonians 3:9 For what thanks can we render to God again for you, for all the joy wherewith we joy for your sakes before our God;

1Thessalonians 3:10 Night and day praying exceedingly that we might see your face, and might perfect that which is lacking in your faith?

1Thessalonians 3:11 Now God himself and our Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way unto you.

1Thessalonians 3:12 And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all men, even as we do toward you:

1Thessalonians 3:13 To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.

 

When the commercials, and ads come out for Christmas it amazes me with the new nonsense of thins for adults and children that so many people realize suddenly they can't live without. Yhings they will stand in line for hours for their children to have "so they don't feel left out. Or so "they feel like every other adult". Where does all this time, and money come from. Just a month ago when the church needed help NOBODY raised their hand "Sorry Pastor I am so overbooked right now", and "Money I just paid my taxes". Now a Month later we are camping out in a line for 10hours to get that special deal.

 

What should we have more of at Christmas and the rest of the year? Love. Abounding Love for our Savior is what we need for Christmas and the rest of the year. We should care less of that new toy being offered to the first hundred people. We need to be the Christian that abounds in Love. What is a Christian that "abounds in love?" What kind of love are we to abound with?

When Paul urged the Thessalonians to "abound in love," he was speaking to a community that already had its capacity to love significantly challenged. Persecutions and suffering at the hands of the city’s pagan officials, condemnations from the Jewish synagogue and contentions within their own ranks had threatened to strain the loving nature of the Thessalonians. Perhaps the eschatological expectations of some of the Thessalonians had led them to focus too intently on the future and to fix too little on the dailyness of life lived within a community of faith.

 

How can we thank the Lord enough:(

First, Abundant Love must REBOUND. We must take whatever hits us and rebound it with love. The Christian’s challenge is to rebound love when we are clobbered with hate; to rebound love when we are jabbed with jealousy; to rebound love when we are shoved by pettiness; to rebound love when we are floored by dishonesty.

REDOUND- It entails a result. To "redound" something is to get a result, to have an effect, to contribute to the outcome. To make known the love of Christ takes more than words -- it takes action; it entails results. Sharing the love of Christ with others involves sacrifice on our part.

RESOUND -- When something makes a lasting impact, when it lives in memory beyond the normal length of its days, when it reverberates beyond space and even time, we say that it resounds. To resound something puts you on a grand scale. This may or may not be good news.

 

The best way to thank the Lord is to love him, live for him, cherish him, and not be ashamed of him. To be more concerned for him, than for ouirselves. If someone asks what do you really want for Christmas don't give a worldly answer, a materialistic answer give a answer that will be pleasing unto the Lord and mean it.



Love,

Cheryl

PRAISE THE GIVER OF ALL

Let us mingle our voices in chorus today;

The earth is rejoicing, all nature is gay,

And the stream in the valley goes laughing along;

How happy its beautiful song.

Praise the Lord, the Giver of all,

Praise the Lord, the Giver of all;

Let His children with rapture His mercy recall,

The bountiful Giver of all.

There is joy in the sunbeam that sparkles so bright

And calls the young blossoms to welcome the light;

And the bird in the greenwood is singing with glee,

As cheerful and happy as we.

Praise the Lord, the Giver of all,

Praise the Lord, the Giver of all;

Let His children with rapture His mercy recall,

The bountiful Giver of all.

Let us join the glad music and joyfully raise,

In purest devotion, our jubilant praise;

We are grateful to God for this beautiful day:

We’ll sing the bright moments away.
