TRUTH AND LOVE MINISTRIES
We're Taking a Hiatus
Dear TLM Members,
It has come time to shut down Truth and Love Ministries, at least temporarily. Where I am spiritually is not in a place where I can effectively run Truth and Love Ministries. I need to take at least two weeks to spend time in prayer and consider redesigning the website as well as considering expanding the TLM Team to be a team again if that is what the Lord wills. Unfortunately, I can't say any details about that right now and will send out an email when TLM is ready to relaunch.
The Truth and Ministries website is currently down with this website as a substitute. During this time, I'll reassess what parts of TLM need to stay and what parts need to go.
More importantly, while the fully functional website is down, I'll be spending time catching up in school and spending time with the Lord.
I hope that when Truth and Love Ministries returns that we will be more effective at our mission of sharing the Gospel to the online world.
Thank you for being with Truth and Love Ministries all this time and being supportive of the mission of the Gospel being spread online.
COMMITTING TO GOD'S GRACE AND LOVE,
LITTLE BIBLE MESSAGES #7: LAST WORDS
My Last Words to You For Now; We'll Be Back
No one is promised tomorrow, and even if God grants you tomorrow, you don’t know what events in your life could happen that could change your life. So, if you knew you would never see your friends again after today, what would you say to everyone as your final goodbye?
I would tell everyone this: Love God and love your neighbor as yourself. It’s so easy to get caught up in offenses that we stop loving our friends and, as a result, stop loving God. When your friend upsets you, remember your commitment to love God and ask Him to help you to forgive that person since the Lord commands it. The Lord says, “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you” (Matthew 6:15 NKJV). When people sin against you, forgive them; seek reconciliation just as God does from you. Go to the person directly and alone. Don’t gossip about your friend (or anyone for that matter) or first go to higher authorities; seek reconciliation first and foremost, not punishment. As Jesus tells us, “…if your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother” (18:15). Life is too short to hold onto grudges; remember that by seeking a restored relationship with your friend in private, you are honoring God as your Lord and honoring your friend as your brother or sister.
If I never write to you again, remember this: love the Lord and seek reconciliation with all men. If I have done anything to offend and upset you, I’m sorry for any harm I caused, and I ask for your forgiveness. Come to me privately, and let’s work things out.
COMMITTING TO GODS’ GRACE AND LOVE
