The God You Really Believe In Is the One You See on Your Worst Days

One of the points in this article is that how we feel about God on our bad days ( “God hates me,””God is disappointed with me”), is actually an indication of how we truly feel about the Lord. And we can’t improve our understanding of and our attitude toward God until we identify our areas of doubt and weakness. From Grace Life International……….

God Is as Just and Holy as He Is Loving

A very important point: Even our secular culture wants to think of God as only loving. While the Word says that God is love because of the eternal loving communion within the Godhead, the Word also says that God is holy. I believe from these two foundations of love and holiness flow all the other attributes of God, including His justice. Another great article from Randy Alcorn and Eternal Perspectives Ministries………

What the Good Samaritan Can Teach Us – – – Dallas Willard

What the good Samaritan can teach us

In the story of the good Samaritan, Jesus not only teaches us to help people in need; more deeply, he teaches us that we cannot identify who “has it,” who is “in” with God, who is “blessed,” by looking at exteriors of any sort. That is a matter of the heart. There alone the kingdom of the heavens and human kingdoms great and small are knit together. Draw any cultural or social line you wish, and God will find his way beyond it. “Human beings look at the outer appearance, but Jehovah looks on the heart” (1 Sam. 16:7). And “what humanity highly regards can be sickening to God” (Luke 16:15).
