Imagine, you are sitting on the side of the street begging for money, food, clothes, or shelter. You watch as the people walk by acting like you’re not there, ignoring you. To caught up in there own lives. How would you feel? Put your self in that persons shoes next time you walk by someone on the street. You as a Christian it is your job to help. Helping will not only help you and the person but it will help you reach the kingdom of God. Every time you help someone God remembers. Yes, he forgives you for the bad things but he also remembers the good things we do. When you help someone, it is like helping Jesus Christ himself. How? Jesus is in everyone. Everybody has a bit of the Lord inside of them. If you turn down someone who needs help it is as if you just turned down Jesus himself. If you help him or her, it is as if you helped Jesus. If you ignore someone, God will ignore you in the last Judgment.

All that is written above will also help you in the second coming. The Second Coming is when Jesus visits earth again. We believe that when Jesus comes back to earth for a second time (Second Coming) there will be a judgment. The judgment is called The Last Judgment. The last judgment is when you are being judged on whether or not you are going to be with god in heaven.…...

One of the Things I Love About God

...One of the things that I love about God’s word the most is that it is so timeless. Perhaps the reason is, that even though the world changes around us constantly, human nature tends to remain much the same. This evening, I would like to show you what I mean, as we look at a story in God’s word. John 9 Can you imagine what it must be like to be blind? This man was born that way. How do you begin to describe to a blind man, the simple things we take for granted? How do you begin to describe the colors of autumn leaves? How do you describe the yellow buttercups or the white dogwood blossoms or redbuds in the spring? How do you begin to paint a baby blue sky with white fluffy clouds in the mind of someone who has never seen the light of day? How do you describe to him what his parents look like or what he looks like? I wonder, how many times did this young man sit and wonder, “oh, if only I could see?” If only I could be like everyone else. If only I did not have to rely on others to bring me down town where I have to sit and beg. If only I could see so that I could get a job. If only….. Imagine? I’m sorry, but I cannot. In this story that we have just read, is a man, just like that. He is blind and has always been. Along comes this man, the Son of God, who gives to him the one thing that he has never had, his eyesight. Immediately, some of the folks around town notice. Isn’t this the beggar who was blind? Some said, “yes, this is him”. ......

...Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been in situations where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 101%? What equals 100% in life? Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these Questions: If: A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z Is represented as: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 2122 23 24 25 26 Then: H-A-R-D-W-O-R- K 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%   and K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96% But, A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%  AND, look how far the love of God will take you L-O-V-E- O-F -G-O-D 12+15+22+5+15+6+7+15+4 = 101% Therefore, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that: While Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it's the Love of God that will put you over the top!

For the Love of God

...“For the Love of God” In 2007, artist Damien Hirst exhibited a work at the White Cube gallery in London, which is reputed to be the most expensive contemporary artwork ever made. “For the Love of God”, a platinum skull set with diamonds, is one of Hirst’s important and widely recognized works. Its raw materials define it as an artwork of unprecedented scale. The 32 platinum plates making up “For the Love of God” are set with 8,601 flawless diamonds, weighing a massive 1,106.18 carats. The teeth inserted into the jaw are real and belong to the original skull. For Hirst, famous pickled of sharks and bovine bisector, all his art is about death. This piece, which was cast from an 18th-century skull he bought in London. Entitled “For the Love of God”, apparently in response to a question posed by Hirst’s mother (“For the love of God, what are you going to do next?”) Inspired by Aztec turquoise mosaic skulls held in the collection of the British Museum, Hirst thought it would be great to create a diamond version, but was originally deterred by the prohibitive cost. Upon further consideration, he decided that the ludicrous expense could actually be the work’s rationale. Since it was first exhibited in 2007, “For the Love of God” has become one of the most widely recognized works of contemporary art. It represents the artist’s continued interest in mortality and notions of value. A reminder of the fragility of life is the main idea of the work. “For the Love of God”......

Love

...Nurturing Love Love can alter the existence of ones life perhaps through the birth of a child or marriage. This thing human’s call love can empower the mind, body, and soul. I am a firm believer that love does exist. Love means that deep intense emotion of affection, along with acceptance regardless of any flaws, and a safe place in one’s heart. Love is subjectively applied in differnent relationships.That is my interpretation of what love is. I will explain love between my six year old duaghter Aubrey, and myself. She has come to my bed in the middle of the night knowing mommy loves her and will keep her safe from anything. My examples of love will contain imagery of every day occurences that she and I have had. As well as referencing theological versus to really help her grasp the concept of what love is. I will aslo incorprate the variations of love with a child, the love of God, and love with a spouse. Aubrey’s counter argument is going to be if all these examples are true, than how come you and my dad do not love anymore? Aubrey: Mommy please wake up, begged Aubrey as she slid into the right side of the bed. Cindy: Are you ok Aubrey, go back to your bed. Aubrey: No! Please I am really scared can’t I just stay her tonight with you pretty please mommy excalimed, Aubrey. Cindy: Sure, Aubrey you want mommy to protect you from whatever is scary in your room?

When You Love You Should Not Say "God Is in My Heart, " but Rather, "I Am in the Heart of God."

...When you love you should not say, "God is in my heart," but rather, "I am in the heart of God." When you love you should believe that you are in his/her heart. For me these quotations teach us to have trust in our love once just like when giving trust in God. Trust is the very thing that everybody in this world desires, or at least should desire from one another. Who wants to have a friendship or relationship without trust? Nobody does. Without trust, there is no friendship, and without friendship, there is no love. I believe that trust is an even greater compliment than to be loved! I believe George Macdonald said it best when he stated "To be trusted is a greater compliment than to be loved." When I read this quote for the first time, I thought to myself, "Wow that is so true. How can you be loved if you are not trusted first?" It is a special thing to be trusted by someone. Having trust is very important. It’s a big part in a relationship. Being truthful is the key to establishing trust in any type of relationship. In a romantic type of relationship, jealousy can be a major cause for a lack of trust. Both parties must have trust. In any case of relationship, trust is built, earned, and maintained. For example: If you had an ex who cheated on you, you might start experiencing trust issues in relationships with others especially when you get close to one another. It may be difficult and you may end up not being able to trust the other person. When someone loses your......

The Gods

...The Role of the Gods in the Iliad In the era of Homer, divine intervention was thought to be typical, and one of his foremost works, The Iliad, reflects this. Nearly all of the Greek gods are involved in the outcome of the Trojan War, which happens to be the background story of this epic poem. The gods are used by Homer to add twists on an otherwise standard plot of war. Evidently, the gods will be a powerful source of divine intervention and their actions certainly have significant outcomes on the Trojan War, and more importantly, the story of The Iliad. Zeus, very untypical of a Greek god in his lack of involvement in the Trojan War for selfish reasons, was portrayed as the father figure, being impartial and fair to both sides of the war. He remains this way to serve as a check for the other god's involvement in the war. Without the presence of fate controlling the inner circle of Olympus, it is likely that the activity of the Trojan War would have become chaotic, possibly even becoming a playground of war for the gods. The power of fate, above all of the other gods combined, is a power that not even divine intervention can prevent. This theme of fate and how it controls the god’s actions is quite befitting to the storyline of The Iliad. The Iliad, in essence, recounts the story of part of the tenth year of the Trojan War. It recounts of the anger of Achilles, the greatest warrior present at Troy, and of the background battle that is ensuing. The reoccurring theme in the......

God and Love

... The Benefits of Owning a Sports Utility Vehicle Morgan Martin Liberty University Education APA format Abstract "Did My Car Join Al Qaeda" by Woody Hochswender is a well written persuasive argument that powerfully portrays his point of view. All three types of appeals are presented within the essay to attract all different styles of readers. Hochswender starts the essay with an ethical or ethos appeal, “I drive a large, for-wheel vehicle. Does that mean I’m a bad person” (Muller & Wiener, 2009, pg. 154). It is quite obvious that Mr. Hochswender has received cruel comments about owning an SUV since he is considering himself a bad person for possessing a particular type of vehicle. Although some people do not agree with Hochswender choice of owning an SUV he is very passionate and vibrant in his view about his rights to own an SUV. He then goes on to explain logical or logos by explaining how in many situations SUVs are safer than normal cars, “However, if some drunken driver veers across the center divider- a situation I have no control over- I would prefer that my 9-year-old and I not be inside a Corolla.”(Muller & Wiener, 2009, pg. 155) Even though SUVs waste a lot more money on gas, in the event of an accident the chances of survival in an SUV would be much more than a small car. He then concludes the essay by explaining how he does know of other way to conserve energy, but the safety of him and his family is prioritized above...

Eros God of Love

...Eros Eros was the Greek god of love, or more precisely, passionate and physical desire, whose Roman name was Amor or Cupid. The Romans borrowed Eros from the Greeks and called him Cupid (Latin cupido meaning desire). Eros was depicted as a blindfolded male, who, carrying his bow and arrow, could target any human being and make them fall in love with the first person they would see. Eros could be found in the Theogony that is the history of the gods. Eros was the son of Aphrodite the goddess of beauty and Ares the god of War, Eros himself was deeply in love with the Greek goddess Psyche, the goddess who incorporated human emotions. Psyche was renowned for her divine beauty, which was said to be even greater than the beauty of Aphrodite. Eros had one daughter that was Voluptua. His brothers was Anteros, the god of requited love, also he had half-brothers and half-sisters which were named Harmonia that was her half-sister and Deimos and Phobos that were their half-brothers. Eros was the youngest of the gods, generally the son of Aphrodite by Ares or Hermes, always a child, thoughtless and capricious. He is as irresistible as fair, and has no pity even for his own mother. Zeus, the father of gods and men, arms him with golden wings, and with bow and unerring arrows, or burning torches. Eros is usually depicted as a young winged boy, with his bow and arrows at the ready, to either shoot into the hearts of gods or mortals which would rouse them to desire. He possessed two......

Commentary for Love God Love Neighbor

...Love God, Love Neighbor – Matthew 22:34-40; Mark 12:28-34 34 But when the Pharisees heard that he had silenced the Sadducees, they gathered together. 35 And one of them, a lawyer, asked him a question to test him. 36 "Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?" 37 And he said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets." – Matthew 22:34-40 28 And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, "Which commandment is the most important of all?" 29 Jesus answered, "The most important is, 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.' 31 The second is this: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." 32 And the scribe said to him, "You are right, Teacher. You have truly said that he is one, and there is no other besides him. 33 And to love him with all the heart and with all the understanding and with all the strength, and to love one's neighbor as oneself, is much more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices." 34 And when Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he......

Love

...Love From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search For other uses, see Love (disambiguation). Archetypal lovers Romeo and Juliet portrayed by Frank Dicksee Love is an emotion of a strong affection and personal attachment.[1] Love is also a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection —"the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another".[2] Love may describe actions towards others or oneself based on compassion or affection.[3] In English, love refers to a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes, ranging from pleasure ("I loved that meal") to interpersonal attraction ("I love my partner"). "Love" may refer specifically to the passionate desire and intimacy of romantic love, to the sexual love of eros, to the emotional closeness of familial love, to the platonic love that defines friendship,[4] or to the profound oneness or devotion of religious love[5], or to a concept of love that encompasses all of those feelings. This diversity of uses and meanings, combined with the complexity of the feelings involved, makes love unusually difficult to consistently define, compared to other emotional states. Love in its various forms acts as a major facilitator of interpersonal relationships and, owing to its central psychological importance, is one of the most common themes in the creative arts.[6] Love may be understood as part of the survival instinct, a function to......
