Worshiping God?

Submitted by Stephen Winters

I was raised as a Christian and thought of myself as that for many years. However, in recent years the "Christian" identity of God has changed and expanded for me. I have liked the way that Bishop Carlton Pearson said it in the title of one of his books: "God Is Not a Christian, Nor a Jew, Muslim, Hindu...: God Dwells with Us, in Us, Around Us, as Us"

Being A True Friend

Submitted by Stephen Winters

 

 

Can you be a true friend to someone if that someone  not acting honorably or is not being a true friend to you. Is reciprocity a requirement of true friendship?

A true friend does not help a friend to avoid consequences of wrong-doing. Rather a true friend will encourage and motivate you to do the right  thing within the context of accepting the consequences.

A true friend will not necessarily shun his friend who had done wrong. Rather, depending upon circumstances, the true friend may choose to walk with his friend through the midst of the consequences.

True love is from God and is based upon who He is; "God is Love." Because He is love, he is the source of all true love.

Now what does that mean? God loves because that is who he is. That is His nature. We are his children. As his children, we take on the character and nature of God: therefore we are love. We love because that is who we are. Also, remember,  love is a verb,  it is a "being"  and "doing" word.  Love is who we are and, because of that, love is what we do.
