Five Years of Truth: 2012 He Owns The World

I committed my life to Jesus five and one half years ago. Each year He has given me new and wonderful things to learn, to feel, and to do.

Join me in reminiscing.

 

2012 He Owns The World

Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God.
1 John 4:7

thursday2012 was a very special year for me. I went on a mission trip with ZMI to the Dominican Republic. Many wondrous things happened on that trip. God took me on a great adventure.

This was the year I learned that He is so much bigger than we can imagine. God owns everything, and He is in complete control of it, too.

Looking back on that trip I understand what He wanted me to see was not the geography but the people. There are approximately 7 billion people on earth. All of them created by God. All of them loved by God. Not even one does He want to perish, but He wants all to repent and be saved.

He wants us to love them, too. He wants us to love the people of the world. He wants us to love each other. For me it is so easy to love God. What about people? Don’t we sometimes find that a little difficult?

Jesus died a cruel death because He loved the people of this world. While He was here he taught over and over again about love. Before He left He gave us the command to go out into the world and tell all the people the good news of salvation.

I am so thankful for the missionaries of this world like ZMI that carry the Gospel to the darkest corners. How about the dark corners where you live? Where I live?

Lord Father, Help us to love those around us the way you do. Show us how to open our hearts and be your hands and feet.

If we open ourselves to others God will fill our own hearts with immeasurable joy.

I love that about God!
