Before and After

Room renovation: do you take before & after pictures?

What about before & after the transformation of accepting Jesus Christ as your Savior? What’s changed in you?

“You are all sons of light and sons of the day.  We are not of the night nor of darkness.” Paul charges in 1 Thessalonians 5:5.

“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.” Isaiah 60:1-3 (KJV).

I Need That Jesus – A Pastor’s Testimony

Being the eldest son, he was going to inherit all his father’s idols.

One day, he heard a woman preaching the gospel & he said, “I need that Jesus.”  She sent him to pray with her Pastor.  He did and he was filled with the Holy Ghost, set free & shown the true way of life.  He forsook his old beliefs and never looked back, his problems cleared up.

Today, he prays right away for someone, male or female.  They have to be willing to be delivered into freedom.  He is the son of Christ everyday, not one day on & one day off.  Through & through, delivered, born again, saved: the Lord’s (1 John 4:4).

“Then He said to them all: “Whoever wants to be My disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow Me.” Luke 9:23 (NIV).

Love is the only force…

…capable of transforming an enemy into a friend” said Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Greater love has no man than this that He lay down His life for His friends,” John 15:13.

“Love covers a multitude of sins,” 1 Peter 4:8 (NIV).

“Charity suffers long, and is kind; charity is not puffed up, envies not, vaunts not itself, does not behave itself unseemly, seeks not her own, isn’t easily provoked,” 1 Cor 13

“That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fulness of God,”  Eph 3:17-19
