He died for love, he died for the lost, he died for all and paid the ultimate cost.


 

 
 
 
I saw an old man; he was putting donated food in his truck. His worn hands were trembling, from suffering in life.
 
A Christian brother was beside me, he mocked the old man. My brother said of the old man “His suffering was self caused.”
 
I felt pain that morning, I felt pain of life. I felt pain of the suffering of the one on the cross. He died for me, he died for you, he died for the old man, he died for truth. He died for love, he died for the lost, he died for all and paid the ultimate cost.
 
My brother I do not judge, he is in my prayers. For the old man, I cried a few tears. How can we judge, what we have not lived? How can we judge, when we all have sinned?
 
The old mans life, was a gift from God. How the old man lived, is between him and the cross. I am not the one to judge, I am not the one to cast stones, I am the one to cry and plead before the great throne.
 
I confess my sins, here this day. I confess my sins and pray them away. I confess my anger, I confess temptations, I confess my envy, I confess my pride. I plead for mercy, I plead for love, I plead for the old man and pray he finds love. I pray for my friend and ask he finds mercy. I pray for this world and all who are thirsty. Let’s not judge, but find love for each other.
 
The fountain of life is free for the asking, drink from it and finds love everlasting. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.
 
 
-Peace
 
1 John 4
God's Love and Ours
7 Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.
8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
9 This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.
10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
12 No one has ever seen God; but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
13 We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.
The Voyage of Billy Buckins

You make some good points here, Richard. Thank you. Love and blessings to you,

THIS IS A GOOD EXAMPLE OF HOW PEOPLE HASTILY JUDGE OTHERS...I AM GLAD THAT THE SPIRIT THAT RIDES WITHIN YOUR VESSEL DID NOT LET YOU DO THIS...YOU ARE A TRUE CHILD OF THE KING! THANKS FOR SHARING AND NOW YOU HAVE TWO BROTHERS TO PRAY FOR; THE OLD ONE AND THE JUDGING ONE. BLESSINGS TO YOU AND YOURS. LOVE, JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS

How can we judge, what we have not lived? How can we judge, when we all have sinned?

Amen to that, my friend.
