GRACE - Love your neighbor and be free!

COME:
Matthew 5
43 "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' 44 But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, 45 that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet your brethren only, what do you do more than others? Do not even the tax collectors do so? 48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.

HEAR:
LOVE and GRACE. This whole chapter is demonstrating what it takes to walk in THE BLESSING. It starts out "BLESSED are those...". BLESSED means empowered to prosper. So Empowered to Prosper are those who walk in these things. Those who are poor in spirit are those who realize and acknowledge that on their own they are nothing and have nothing; therefore they rely on God's gift of Grace. By Grace I am NOT an old sinner. I WAS an old sinner but I am saved by GRACE!

I can't be both at the same time. I am either an old sinner or I am saved. I can't be both. Through GRACE I have access to the Kingdom of Heaven, and ALL the resources that the kingdom of heaven gives me access to. This great grace is an amazing thing. I am delivered from the law and trying to walk according to it's statutes. But Darrell? Doesn't the chapter go on to tell me that the law has been enhanced and that I have a deeper obedience to the law. Not only must I love my neighbor but also my enemy? AH yes! But this isn't out of white knuckled obedience. The GRACE of God has been given to you. You are full of the Holy Spirit. The LOVE of God has been shed abroad in your heart. You walk in LOVE not out of obedience but out of your new nature. You have been made a new creation.

How do I walk in this LOVE? I've been saved for years and I keep failing to walk in LOVE. That is because you haven't realized who you are IN HIM. When you understand the TOTAL GRACE that has been given to you all sin begins to melt away from you. When you say: "I'm so unworthy. I've been trying to change for years but I can't seem to. I am such a failure." You hear the voice of God in response to your words saying: "I'm not against you. I LOVE you. I am not holding your past, present, or future against you! Stop looking at that and start looking at my LOVE. What you look at is what you become. Look at my LOVE and become my LOVE."

As you start to meditate on the LOVE of God for you all the other stuff melts away and you become that which you behold. You become perfect as The Father is perfect!

DO:
Find every place the bible talks about LOVE, IN HIM, IN WHOM, IN CHRIST and meditate on these. This will radically change your life. Get Kenneth Hagins mini book "In Him". Listen to Joseph Prince, he majors on Grace. Meditate on this until the LOVE of God for you is bigger than anything else in your mind, heart, or life. Until you're immediate response to sin is GRACE! When that happens you won't to things to harm others or judge them. You will dispense GRACE to them, just as your Father in heaven does.

PRAYER:
Thank you for your GRACE, Father. Blow up that GRACE in my heart. May I be like you!

Darrell G. Wolfe

  • Saint: A Paradise Novel (here) by Ted Dekker (Author). He's an assassin, or is he? He finds a secret to his past that unlocks supernatural abilities, at a cost.
  • For a full list of all my book suggestions, see my Amazon Store.

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

The Bell Tolls For Thee... Perspectives on Pain and Suffering

No man is an island,  entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were;  any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee. John Donne Meditation 17
We are All Connected 
Before cell phones, WiFi, Social Media, Email, Cars, or even Electricity... small rural towns had the Church Bell to communicate mass messages. The Bell Tolls to communicate something important has happened, and get our attention.
John Donne, a pastor-poet in 1635, was suffering from an illness he was sure would lead to his death. He wrote the above quote after hearing the Bell Toll for the passing of his neighbor. He wondered if he was so ill his family tolled it for him, thinking he was dead.

When he says "it tolls for thee", Donne rea…

No Hiding... My Story

Why am I writing my story? So... here's the thing. The Pure Desire, Seven Pillars workbook asks me to write an addiction story. When I was __ this happened. Then this happened. Timeline style.

The workbook and videos also break down the limbic system, and how desires, fears, and auto-responses were mostly created early, before 6 years old, give or take.

I've been thinking about my history and timeline for years, wondering why I am the way I am. So this sounds like promising homework. I started in on paper, but the deep level I want to travel will take more space. I plan to outline every relevant (or possibly relevant) moment.

Also, I'm inspired to start again because of a KPBS special "Meet the Patels", in which Ravi Patel (as shown through the lens of his sister's (Geeta Patel's - Film Maker) camera. It's a long story, worth seeing. It showed the struggles of American dating vs the arranged or partially-arranged type marriage systems their culture us…
