Come home.


http://Kirk Cameron Reminds Us Just HOW Much God Loves Us from worshiphousemedia on GodTube.

 

Ty, a young man that feels he has committed an unforgivable act, is on the run and not sure where to turn for help. But what he doesn’t realize is he is being pursued by our forgiving and loving Heavenly Father! God’s love is relentless and ever pursuing. No matter who we are, or what we’ve done, He still loves us and wants us to come home. This video with Kirk Cameron will touch your heart!

 

While on the cross, Jesus prayed “Father forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing,” He said it without any bitterness, anger or resentment in His heart for His accusers. He was able to pray this prayer with a pure heart right in the middle of his own pain.

Forgiveness is an act of love and the heart of Jesus towards His accusers and killers was a heart of love. The disciples as they watched Jesus forgive his enemies on the cross must have wondered what He really meant when He taught them, “ Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you” – Luke 6:27-28.

We do not know


F.B. Meyer once said that when we see a brother or sister in sin, there are three things we do not know:

  • First, we do not know how hard he or she tried not to sin.
  • Second, we do not know the power of the forces that assailed him or her.
  • Thirdly, we also do not know what we would have done in the same circumstances.

Conviction and compassion – it’s not a binary concept of one or the other. It is both strength of conviction and depth of compassion that will enable us to be the “salt of the earth” and the “light of the world” that God has called us to be.

(From a sermon by Mark Opperman, “Improving our Vision” 1/12/2009)
