Loved. Part-Two.

Show, not just Saying.

The world today has made the word love so cheap and easy to say, with very little meaning to it anymore? It has become all about self, what ‘I want, Me, love this and that and so on.

But we as believers by faith in God must try to be concerned and show care first for our own brothers and sisters, rather than make excuses.

Ruth 2:10,  18,  Psalm 34:14,   Acts 11:23,   Romans 12:9-10.

This is something to be considered on the eve of Saint Valentines day, tomorrow!

Saint Stephen.

December 26th marks Saint Stephens Day.

Saint Stephen is attributed as being the first ‘Christian Martyr’ of the Church. We learn about Stephen in the book of Acts, were a group of men become jealous of his correct teaching about Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit in the individuals life. So instead of tolerating him, they form a mob and stone him to death. Acts 7:1 -8:1. Saul is there approving Stephens death, this is before his own encounter with Jesus on the road to Damascus. Acts 9.

The reality is ‘that all believers in Jesus as the Son of God, died for our sins on the cross/stake and arose from the dead will be persecuted, if not killed. To be a real believer is not about keeping traditions or set beliefs, it is about having the faith to put them into practice. More about the doing than the saying.
