All Humans Are Alike

While I knew God created us all alike, this became obvious to me after advising people around the world.  What a miracle, we all have the same problems and need the same solution.

All humans in this world experience problems to help them grow spiritually, and this growth is evident when we have love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control.  We all make choices every day to be like this or not.

The easiest way to accomplish spiritual growth is when we have supernatural help.  I have done spiritual growth before knowing Jesus and after being with Him.

Before, it was hard work and limiting but, after, it was easy with His supernatural help.  His love, acceptance and guidance is only a prayer away.

Another Sign From God

My husband paints Christian scenes from the Bible and was unsure about its acceptance in the art world.  We had received a sign from God about doing Christian art at the last art show, so we prayed for a sign at this one.

All Christians need signs and wonders from God to build up their faith because this world provides constant discouragement and pointless distractions.  God gave us His miraculous sign when my husband won the highest possible award, "Best In Show," at the art festival.

Only with the Lord's direction can we be successful for eternal purposes.  His help is freely available for anyone, at any time and any where with sincere prayer.

Christians and Muslims

The two largest religions in the the world are Christian and Muslim.  Both groups of people claim to worship the same Creator God, trace their roots to Abraham in the Old Testament and know about Jesus.

The Muslims believe Jesus was a prophet and the Christians believe Jesus is the Christ.  As Christ, Jesus came to reconcile us to God by becoming our Savior from sin and the Lord of our lives.

Both religions teach a moral code of ethics to respect others and neither religion teach to kill people of other religions, unless in self-defense.  So why are we killing each other?

All humans have free will and a sinful nature.  Because of this, we can choose to do good and follow what God wants or we can give in to our sinful side and do evil.

When Jesus is the Lord of our lives, he gives us the love, strength, joy, peace and direction to be the unconditionally loving people that God created us to be in all circumstances.  This miraculous free gift of help is only a prayer away.

Be Like Christ

Christians are called to be like Christ.  This is actually what the name, Christian, means.

But when a Christian acts like Christ, it is a miracle.  Most Christians act like everyone else in the world.

Christ Jesus told us the Commandments of love to follow, and commandments are requirements.  When we do this, we stand out.

We, Christians, must love God first and everyone else second.  This type of love is unconditional, which means generous, with pure motives, no expectations, never critical, always encouraging and totally forgiving in thought, word and deed.

This high standard is impossible without Jesus leading our lives and when this miracle happens, everyone will notice.  Jesus Christ's help is only a prayer away.
