In my devotional time I read this by Jamie Carte: Topic “God’s Love” (He Cannot Help Himself). God Himself is Love. Love is who He is and what He is made up of. His character, His ways, HIM! Love Himself came to earth to show us that He would go to every length to have us. Love healed the sick, gave sight to the blind. LOVE fed people, freed people, suffered for us, bled for us, and finally breathed His last breath and died for us. Love loves us! He faced pain, torment, shame, fear, death and hell for us. Why? Because God is Love! And Love Himself loves us! He cannot help Himself that is who He is! Now He has left us here to continue what He began. Let Love, Jesus do His job through you today. “Because in the world we are like him.” Display and give some Love, some God out to others today! Place this Scripture in your “Heart.” (1 John 4: 16-17).

Continuing with: “The Sneaky Sin of Gossip.” It starts by coming in through our ears and then it gets in our heart. And from the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks! I don’t want an abundance of junk in my heart; piling up, building up pressure like old faithful, ready to spew out of my mouth. Have I repeated things that hurt others before? To my great shame, yes I have. GOSSIP becomes an accepted and even favored communication in today’s society. Our T.V. shows are infested with it. The magazine racks at the checkout are full of garbage, today’s latest lie about this one or that one. If we learn to love gossip about perfect strangers, why wouldn’t we hesitate to make it a part of our life involving the people that we know? Inquiring minds want to know, so they say (smile)… Well I don’t want to know! When I see people on the street, or at a family get–together, or worshiping with me in the church, I don’t want the lowdown on their personal lives. I don’t feel privileged if I have the “dirt” on you… or anyone else. If nothing else scares you about the danger of tale bearing, read Romans 1. The Apostle Paul names off a list of detestable Sins, and GOSSIP is among them. Oh my, then he concludes by saying that those who do these things are worthy of death! What a harsh sentence; but what a damaging thing we do when we verbally assassinate our fellow man. Kind of reminds us how important it is to our Father that we treat one another well, doesn’t it? Yeah, it’s that important. I leave you to read this scripture James 1:26.
Yesterday I had the privilege to attend the home going service of the First Lady of Inner Court Worship Church, Lady Tanya Marie Hithe–Saunders. What a powerful service. Pastor Julio Andujo, officiating the service, set things in order and Superintendent Charles E. Gibson, Pastor Breakthrough COGIC, of Moreno Valley, spoke from Job 19:25-27. His topic was “A home going for a saved lady.” Superintendent Gibson gave a very, powerful home going service for a saved lady. Let us keep Pastor Asa D. Sunders and the family in our prayers. One day we must all sit in that seat. Pastor Gibson thanks for following what God assigned you to do. So many of us were blessed.
