Rest for the Soul

Love Me Tender

LOVE ME TENDER

Ephesians 2 v.4-7
4 But God, who is rich in mercy, for His great love wherewith He loved us,
5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us [made us alive]
together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together
in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
7 That in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace
in His kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

Speaking the Truth in Love



Speaking the Truth in Love 
A vital element of living a life of Godly love, is speaking the truth with Godly love. Think of the people who are closest to you. You certainly wouldn’t kill them or physically harm them. Of course not! Yet, so often people underestimate the power of words to kill or bring life - to injure or to heal.
Proverbs 18:21
Death and life are in the power of the tongue:
and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.

Rev. David Brainerd

REV. DAVID BRAINERD

Rev. David Brainerd was a Minister of the Gospel, a Missionary to the Indians on the borders of New York, New Jersey, & Pennsylvania, from the Honorable Society in Scotland, for the Propagation of Christian Knowledge, and Pastor of a Church of Christian Indians in New Jersey. He died at Northampton, New England, October 9th 1747, at Age 30.

I am of no denomination or specific religion. However, it seems to me that all born again believers form the one body of Christ, regardless of religious affiliation. The accounts of Rev. Brainerd's life, shed light on a unique perspective of Christianity. It is the story of a man, who struggled to spread the good news of Christ. We see his humanity and his difficulty, which is often hidden from the world in religious publications. It also causes me to pause and ask myself, If someone were to publish my diary, would it be profitable for others to read? Sometimes the darkest moments in life, are when God's light shines the brightest.

"Christ is with us until the world's end.
Let his little flock be bold therefore." 


"To have a faith, therefore, or a trust in anything,
where God hath not promised, is plain idolatry, and
a worshipping of thine own imagination instead of God."
