We live in a day were it seems that "mass killings" just happen, and some seemed to be desensitized to it. I write today following a night of a mass shooting that took place in Dallas Texas, I describe it as a mass shooting because four police officers lost there lives. That is four families that are missing someone that they love to night, four people who affected many lives when there life was taken. And then protesting that took place around the country in different cities, one protest demonstration that I heard about took place nearly about thirty minutes away from where I live. And as I drive into work I pass an overload of law enforcement as  they work to ensure safety and prevent future acts following these events. This situation gets me to thinking this morning, where has love left us? The thing is, it hasn't left us anywhere.... WE have LEFT IT! 

If you sit back and think about it, people today will kill another over the simplest thing. We have forgotten that God LOVES us ALL, no matter race, gender, ethnicity HE LOVES US...ALL! And we have to show LOVE. We are called out in His word to not only Love our neighbor but to LOVE HIM, because of the fact that He first Loved us... Truth is He, Jesus,  loved us enough to lay down His own life for us... And God loved us enough to Give us His one and only Son that we would have the opportunity to have and accept eternal life that can only be found through Jesus.

God Loves us So much that he knows the number of hairs that we have and doesnt want us to ever face a place the Bible describes as Hell, an eternal death. But He wants us to choose life, He wants us to Choose LOVE and to share Jesus with the World.

So on that note, "WE", we meaning us as "Christians" followers of Jesus for those of us who accept Jesus and the reward of eternal life, we cannot be conformed to this world, be should even want to be like them that don't choose Him, that choose hate over love, that choose death over life, but we should be TRANSFORMED by the renewing of our minds. When we do this we discover God's will in our lives and can live the life that He has layed out for us...

Today, I want to ask you to BE AN EXAMPLE of LOVE to SOMEONE... Show them what LOVE is, LOVE that can only be found through JESUS. After all they will too know us by our fruits..

Pray Today for all those affected by the Tragedy in Dallas Texas, the families and friends of those who lost there life. Also pray for this Country that we live in, it truly doesn't matter who the president is if we don't turn back to God. There is NO president that can restore us like Jesus can.


1 John 4:19 (NKJV)

19 We love Him because He first loved us.


Luke 12:6-7 (NKJV)

“Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.


Romans 12:2 (NIV)

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.


Matthew 7:15-20 (NKJV)

You Will Know Them by Their Fruits

15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorn bushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.
