Learning to walk the trek of Jesus is not a Sunday morning handyism. Rather, it is likely one of the most challenging assignments coming from Father above. We are to....
We are to hate the sin and love the sinner. This is a most fundamental call of Father to any who determine to follow Him. Hate another's sin; but love them dearly. Only Jesus could demonstrate such a wild call.
It is upon this biblical calling that we will often find to be so challenging. If not very careful, we will dismiss it completely. And why? It's easy to love any sinner whom we really love. But it's just as easy to fail to offer the same flow of the Spirit toward the one(s) that we, frankly, just don't like.
To overcome this selective favoritism is to make a major breakthrough for the Kingdom of God purposes as one walks the daily road. Our likes and dislikes must not be moody. We are to always dislike the sin...and to always love the sinner.
Clearly we are able to practice this...but often it's only with those whom we love. And such an inconsistent "practice" is telling. It is telling us that we have much work to do; faith work to believe in one another especially when the "another" is off the spiritual course.
We all find ourselves strolling in both and then the other and back again. May we develop a living faith that truly detests the sin while, simultaneously loves the sinner. This is the calling, the very challenging calling, of Jesus the Lamb who died upon the Cross to demonstrate just how extreme faith is to look.
May. We. Carry. Our. Crosses. Daily.

 Jeremiah 9:23-24

23 Thus says the Lord, “Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; 24 but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things,” declares the Lord.

And He was saying to them all, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me."
Luke 9:23
Days of smoothicity and troublelessness are deeply desired by each of us. Yet, not one reader is unaware that our days are unable to escape the "rubbing of the wrong way" moments in addition to problematicalistic struggles. Such an observation is not intended to be negative; but it is to place before you the idea that negativity does reside on our streets, huh?
As one grows into the framework of Jesus, it seems that the "grindier" life will become. Why? Because His mission was to rescue the broken, build the abandoned, and...and to save the sinful.
Thus, we find ourselves in a dualistic setting where we are doing what we can to bring relief to all around us who are stymied by the sin-mark while, simultaneously, in deep need of His forgiveness for our own personal abrasivilistic miscues.
Jesus hit earth with a mission to rescue in order to encourage a deeply broken people. And then...and then He handed off His mission to any who would buy into such a marvelous concept. Simply believing involves carrying heavy weight due to grueling determination to give a boost of hope to those around us who are seemingly buried in malfunctionalistic stress and struggle.
May we join the many who continue to labor at following the road of the Cross so that all people of all lands may have opportunity to experience the beauty of Jesus' fantastilistical mission...of rescuing the world. And, yes, such a road is mighty, mighty rugged. So...

 LET THE BELIEVING BEGIN!!'s a new day! Welcome to the world of possibility and potential. I pull alongside of you with understanding that many of you face deep and wide stress and struggle. I, therefore, wish to join the voices around you to hopefully give you a boost.
"Believing" must not be relegated to churchilistic concepts. It is to be a way....a true way...of life. Believing is one's conviction regarding reality when the "seeing" part isn't yet on the table. Believing is the eyesight of the heart....and it is truly real.
While the idea is older than the hills, to believe is to do our walk with a most endearing creative element. Believing causes things that "aren't yet" to eventually come into existence.
Let the believing!!
