Psalm 61

Psalm 61


1 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.

2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.

3 For thou hast been a shelter for me, and a strong tower from the enemy.

4 I will abide in thy tabernacle for ever: I will trust in the covert of thy wings. Selah.

5 For thou, O God, hast heard my vows: thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear thy name.

6 Thou wilt prolong the king's life: and his years as many generations.

7 He shall abide before God for ever: O prepare mercy and truth, which may preserve him.

8 So will I sing praise unto thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.

Removing God

Something always takes His place. 


There is a move in the World, not just America, but in the entire World, to remove God from Public Life. It is most notable here, in the Country where we "Celebrate" the Freedom of "Religion." But it is not confined to here. There is still a very active Anti-Semitic move around the World, with entire Countries being threatened. However, if you look closely, you will see a growing movement to wipe out anything Christian as well.

Entire groups of people are being tortured, enslaved, and murdered for one sole reason. They profess the name, Jesus Christ. Entire Countries are being taken over, and all references to God, or more frequently, the Christian God, is being removed and in God's Place, they insert all kinds of things from False Religions that give authority to the Leading few to torture, enslave, and murder, those they disagree with. Or they fill the void with Worldly, anything goes, feel good, nonsense.

In this Country, the Country that was formed BECAUSE of, and FOR, Religion Freedom, there has been a movement to actively remove God from public life. Oh, we still have Laws to Protect the "Freedom of Religion" to a degree, but many have twisted and used this very clause in the Constitution to restrict and attack the "Christian God." We will still protect Jews, to a degree. However, do not dare say anything about Muslims. Do not even think about insulting someone for a made up Holidays or "Holy Days." But God, the Bible, and Jesus? Seems to be open season. Why? Think about that. Why?

You see the truth is simple. Simple to understand, but very hard for some to accept. Jesus said in John 14:6-7
"I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him."
Jesus also told us this plainly in John 10:7-11,
"I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep."
This is why we have active Senators and Congress People attempting to create a Law where Schools must have a Praying area for Muslim Students. Yet, Little Johnny wears a "Jesus loves you" T Shirt or Cross around his neck is sent home. This is why so very many have attempted to suppress Christianity. They use the guise of Compassion, Equality, and Fairness to attack Christianity. "We must not offend others. Everyone has a right and a freedom to worship God in their own way. If we allow Jesus, then we would have to allow all, so we allow nothing and ask you to keep Jesus to yourself.

The whole reason we are here as a Country IS Freedom of Religion. It IS Freedom in general. We were founded on Christian beliefs. God has been the reasons, why we have been so Prosperous. Why we became the most powerful Nation on the Earth. But this is changing. Why? Because we are removing God. The very reason we were formed.

Do you know the Cities of the Plains? God was totally removed in these Cities. Sodom and Gomorrah, Admah, Zeboim, and Bela. These five cities, also known as the "Cities of the Plain." They all but Bela, totally removed God, His Law, His Will, and His Way. They replace Him with themselves. They started to do whatever they chose. They produced the Works of the Flesh. Which if you remember are "Sexual Immorality, Impurity, Sensuality, Idolatry, Sorcery, Enmity, Strife, Jealousy, Fits of Anger, Rivalries, Dissensions, Divisions, Envy, Drunkenness, Orgies, and things like these." {Galatians 5:19-21}

For this reason, God sends Two Angels and the Lord Himself came. They made a deal with Abraham if merely Ten people could be found in these Cities, God would spare them. They found none. The Word declares that four out of these five Cities were totally destroyed, leaving Bela alone. Some say that it was spared because this is where the Angels brought Lot and his Daughters.

Paul warns us, all Nations, that if we do the same, we will receive the same Judgement from God. Romans 1:16-32
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them."
Look at America today. This movement in America to not only justify, but also rather glorify, Homosexuality and to accept it as normal. To vilify anyone that speaks out against it. Especially if they quote Scriptures. More people are falling for the lie that it is Commission. That it is a Right to allow Gays to Marry. That they deserve Equality to all others in America today. By doing this, America is multiplying its Abominations in God's eyes. Not only do we remain silent, we are attempting to Justify Sin. Make no mistake about it. Homosexuality is Sin.

That is not the only Sin that America is Justifying. Abortion is Murder, yet we have declared that it is a "Right" of a Woman, to Murder her Child. We have opened the flood gates of Acceptability, to attack, mock, and make fun of anything Christian and even the Religion itself. Any other Religion in this Country that does not have Christ in it? Well, they are still very much protected. Speak out on one of those and you can be charged with Hate Crimes.

But Jesus? Mock. Attack. Belittle those that believe? Denounce. Have at it. After all, in this Country that was founded on the Bible, Presidents are sworn in on the Bible, "In God we trust" is on our money, our legal system is based on the Ten Commandments, we have built a "Wall." All other Religions are protected, but Christ and or Christianity is an open season?

This is why they are starting in the Public Schools. They want total control over teaching your kids, there is no god. Setting aside that the Theory of Evolution is both Scientifically and Mathematically impossible, there is no god. That we simply came from a Single Celled Organism floating in a puddle of goo, which also came from nothing, and all things as we know, from Hot to Cold Blooded, to Trees, to everything else Evolved from this. Despite the fact we know this is also Scientifically impossible, due to our advancement in DNA research and understanding, God is still barred. There is no god.

The reason for this is simple. As we have discussed many times. No God, no devil. No devil, no Sin, no Hell. No reason for a Saviour. Live as you will. Concentrate on you. If it feels good, "Do it" See all Equal to you. No one special or unique. Live and let live. Paul continued, warning that Child of God must not fall into the trap of Worldly Thinking...

Romans 2:6-12,
"Who will render to every man according to his deeds: To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life: But unto them that are contentious, and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, indignation and wrath, Tribulation and anguish, upon every soul of man that doeth evil, of the Jew first, and also of the Gentile; But glory, honour, and peace, to every man that worketh good, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile:

For there is no respect of persons with God. For as many as have sinned without law shall also perish without law: and as many as have sinned in the law shall be judged by the law;"
As a Child of God, it is up to you to be a Sower of the Seed. A Teller of Truth. We are in the World but we must not be part of it. Remember what Jesus told his Disciples when He sent them out. Don't waste your time trying to change nations. Simply tell the Truth. Turn to Mark 6:11
"And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a testimony against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city."
In America today, we have removed God. in His place, we have Sexualization of our Culture. Paris Hilton, Britney Spears. Miley Cyrus has gone from being a Role Models for young girls, to out of control Sex Symbols. Wardrobe malfunction. Online pornography. Girls Gone Wild. Viagra. Erectile Dysfunction Ads. It used to be I had to sneak a peek at my Uncle's Play Boy Magazine to see nudity. Now I can just point and click.

We no longer have to strive for the best things in life. Average Joe and Jane Americans enjoy $6 cups of Coffee at Starbucks, guzzle bottled water at $2.00 to $3.00 a pop, feast on Godiva Chocolates, drag Suitcases on Wheels, sit on Heated Car Seats and let GPS Systems guide them. Anything you want can be yours.

It has also become all about YOU. Cellphones are Computers. Want Music? Down load it instantly. The Internet opens the floodgates. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snap Chat, Blogs, it's all about "look at me." Shop and watch TV programs when you want. Capture every moment and play it for a Worldwide Audience. Remember going to Dinner at a nice Restaurant without a few hundred people SEEING your meal? I still do not get that. But it is all about ME.

In the Society we have created, 24-7, no boundaries, limits, and very loose rules, we have a whole generation growing up with High Anxiety. Prozac, Paxil, Xanax, Zoloft, Ritalin, Adderall, are prescribed freely to anyone at nearly any age to help them cope.

Also, in the Psychology Field, we have highly paid "Professionals" that strip away Personal Responsibility by labeling bad behavior as Diseases instead of poor self-control. It's no longer your fault when you commit Crimes against Humanity. You're just sick. It's not your fault. Take this Pill. All will be alright.

Because we, as a Nation, are going down the same road as other Cities, such as Sodom and Gomorrha, shall we then not expect God to react the same way towards us?

Ezekiel 16: 47-52
"Yet hast thou not walked after their ways, nor done after their abominations: but, as if that were a very little thing, thou wast corrupted more than they in all thy ways. As I live, saith the Lord God, Sodom thy sister hath not done, she nor her daughters, as thou hast done, thou and thy daughters.

Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.

Neither hath Samaria committed half of thy sins; but thou hast multiplied thine abominations more than they, and hast justified thy sisters in all thine abominations which thou hast done. Thou also, which hast judged thy sisters, bear thine own shame for thy sins that thou hast committed more abominable than they: they are more righteous than thou: yea, be thou confounded also, and bear thy shame, in that thou hast justified thy sisters."
God holds America even more guilty than Sodom, for not only do we commit the same Sins, we JUSTIFY them. We create Laws to PROTECT them. We create Laws limiting God in Public Life and tell our Kids, there is no god. It is any wonder why the Country is in the state it is in? Well, the problem of teaching people that nothing is their fault, and there is no God, that they should live as they will, you get what you get. If you say anything goes, then anything will go.When you remove God, something else WILL always, take His place.

Is America's destruction inevitable? As long as it keeps going down the same road? Yes. There is only one way to save it. That is simply put God in America again. That is the only chance we have as a Nation. But as a Child of God, you must refrain from becoming like them. If the day comes when God sends Angels to seek out people in America that are Righteous enough to spare America Itself. Be one of those they find. Make sure your name is written in the Lamb's Book of Life. Trust in Him, and not in Government. Trust in Him, The Creator, and let the Creature trust in itself.

Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray.

"Oh heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins. Please send the Spirit of Adoption into my life. Help me to get to know the real you. Save me. Please. In the name of Jesus, Amen!"

That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be. You are now a Child of God. A new Creature. You "have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." {Colossians 3:10}

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. {2 Corinthians 13}

Until next time, be Blessed, be a Blessing, and Jesus IS Lord

Psalm 60

Psalm 60



1 O God, thou hast cast us off, thou hast scattered us, thou hast been displeased; O turn thyself to us again.

2 Thou hast made the earth to tremble; thou hast broken it: heal the breaches thereof; for it shaketh.

3 Thou hast shewed thy people hard things: thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment.

4 Thou hast given a banner to them that fear thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.

5 That thy beloved may be delivered; save with thy right hand, and hear me.

6 God hath spoken in his holiness; I will rejoice, I will divide Shechem, and mete out the valley of Succoth.

7 Gilead is mine, and Manasseh is mine; Ephraim also is the strength of mine head; Judah is my lawgiver;

8 Moab is my washpot; over Edom will I cast out my shoe: Philistia, triumph thou because of me.

9 Who will bring me into the strong city? who will lead me into Edom?

10 Wilt not thou, O God, which hadst cast us off? and thou, O God, which didst not go out with our armies?

11 Give us help from trouble: for vain is the help of man.

12 Through God we shall do valiantly: for he it is that shall tread down our enemies.

Serving God, True Compassion

Compassion can be twisted.


We have discussed this before. There is a difference in True Compassion and Compassion used by the Devil to protect Evil in the World. Compassion sounds great.

Compassion = Sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others.

Sounds good? How can having Compassion be bad? God so loved the World,,, So on and so forth. So how can I then make the statement, that Compassion is a tool of the Devil?

Because twisted, Compassion IS, a tool of the Devil. False Compassion. Misguided Compassion. Taught feelings of Compassion. What do I mean? Remember when we were talking about being Strangers in a Strange Land? Look at this

God says;

1 Have no other god before God.
2 Do not commit Idolatry.
3 Do not take the Name of God in Vain.
4 Remember the Sabbath.
5 Honor your Father and Mother.
6 Do not commit Murder.
7 Do not commit Adultery.
8 Do not Steal.
9 Do Not Bear False Witness.
10 Do not Covet.

The World says;

1 Any god will do. All are equal. Do not offend anyone. Have compassion for those who disagree.
2 Statues of Saints, Mary, and Jesus, can and have worked Miracles.
3 It is only belief and Language. No big deal. Again, keep your "Religion" to yourself.
4 Who cares? We live in a 24-7 Society we want everything NOW or yesterday.
5 Nursing homes and Retirement Centers. Don't judge. Have compassion. You do not understand.
6 Abortion. It is Legal and Compassionate. Who are you to Judge Little Susy.
7 No big deal. Hey, you need to understand, if all are ok, who cares.
8 Depends on reason. Maybe justified. If the Rich are being taken from for the Poor?
9 Gossip. Even entire entertainment venues about Gossip.
10 Greed is good. Keeping up with the Jones is normal, healthy, and good.

Let's look at some of these. "Thou Shalt Not Murder." WE say, "But wait, what if little Suzy is minding her own business, and some old evil guy rapes her? She should not be punished with a Child for the rest of her life. What if that old evil guy is her own Father? It is Compassionate to say, that we have the ability to 'correct' that mistake and end her Pregnancy. As a matter of fact, for whatever reason, it should be a Woman's Right to chose what to do with her body. Right?"

God says Thou Shalt Not Steal. How is it Compassionate to see little Johnny struggle to pay the Electric when the CEO is making 2 Million Dollars a year. It is not wrong to take some from the CEO and giving it to Johnny.

Here is one, God says Homosexuality is Sin. WE say "How can a long term, loving, kind, relationship be evil. And while we are at it, why can't these two Marry. Is it not Compassionate to want 'Equality' and is it not compassionate to say, they should not have to hear what they are doing is wrong? So shut up about it already."

What about God? Jesus says, there is only ONE way to get to Heaven, and that is??? Through Him. WE say "That is a narrow-minded, exclusive, Hate Filled, ignorant view. Compassion tells us that all Religions are equal and that people can believe whatever they want. Your 'Truth' is no better than anyone else's 'Truth'. So keep your 'version' of Truth to yourself."

It is Twisted Compassion that says, we cannot call Sin, Sin. Twisted Compassion tells us we must live and let live. Twisted Compassion tells us we must allow Females to be part of all Male Groups. Twisted Compassion tells us that Companies must hire Minorities, regardless of Education, or Experience, to make sure that we have some color in their Leadership. Twisted Compassion tells us that not only do we now have to accept Sin, but we must honor, and celebrate, and even protect, Sin. Twisted Compassion tells us that if something is offensive to someone, we must change it or ban it.

Look in the news today. Someone becomes offended, and entire History is being erased. Flags banned. TV Shows Banned. Merchandise Banned. Speech silenced. Christianity is attacked at an ever growing rate. God mocked and Jesus denounced. Children of God attacked Personally, Financially, and yes, even Physically.

While this is all going on, some very good people, {Worldly Sense} are Standing, Cheering, and Applauding, because they have been taught, this "FEELS" right and just. Compassion. If it "FEELS" right and just, then it must be right and just. If it "FEELS" good, then do it. Compassion. And if you disagree, then YOU will be seen as a trouble maker. YOU will be seen as a problem. YOU will have to be dealt with. Why? Because Twisted Compassion tells us this.

Here are some Verses that you really need to read for yourself. Abortion? Exodus 20:13, Exodus 21:22-24, Psalm 139. There is no Compromise. There is no Compassion in the Slaughter of the most innocent of all lives. Homosexuality? Leviticus 18:22, Leviticus 20:13, Ezekiel 16:48-51, {Think America} Romans 1: 18-32. There is no Compromise. The Word is crystal clear that Homosexuality is both an Abomination and Sin to God, and against Nature itself. It is not Compassion to tell someone, go ahead, you are as equal and right, as everyone else. While you know, they could very well be on their way to Hell.

Jesus IS the only way to Heaven? John 14:6, Matthew 7:21–27, John 6:63, He promised that those who believe in Him will have eternal life John 3:14–15. He is the gate of the sheep John 10:7; The bread of life John 6:35; and the resurrection John 11:25. THERE IS NO OTHER WAY.

You MUST Forsake your Sins. The Word tells us in Isaiah 55:7
"Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon."
Jesus IS Eternal Life. Romans 3:22
"Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference"
It is NOT Compassionate, to NOT tell someone that if they walk through the Fire, they will get burned. It is not Compassionate, to remain silent and watch them burn. It is not Compassionate, to accept the lie, and allow others to accept the lie. It is not Compassionate to sit and remain silent in the face of so many losing their very Right to Live.

You see, there is only ONE Truth. There is only one Way. There is only one way to find Life itself. It is not exclusive. It is INCLUSIVE. It is not narrow-minded. It is not Hate Filled. It is not Discriminatory. Chauvinistic, or anything else.

Look at John 11:25-26
"Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die."
Jesus said "whosoever"

Peter said this in 2 Peter 3:9
"The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance."
Salvation is open to everyone. Open to all. However, in order for people to accept the Truth, Accept Jesus. Accept God. They have to first HEAR the Word. Remember, Romans 10:17
"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."
It is not Compassion that that keeps The Word silenced. It is something else entirely. It is evil. It is a twisted sense of Compassion. Not real Compassion. You must be careful that you do not fall into this trap. You must be bold enough to say, NO. It is not Compassionate to sit silently and allow so many to simply walk into the fire. It is not Compassionate to justify Sin. It is not Compassionate to allow Man to rewrite, change, and or twist, The Truth to suit their desires.

There sure is a Spirit of Compassion sweeping through the Land. However, if you test it, you will find it is NOT of God. Compassion can be a good thing. However, Twisted Compassion can be, and often is, a Tool of the Devil.

Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray..

"Oh heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins. Please send the Spirit of Adoption into my life. Help me to get to know the real you. Save me. Please. In the name of Jesus, Amen!"

That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be. You are now a Child of God. A new Creature. You "have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." {Colossians 3:10}

Psalm 59

Psalm 59



1 Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God: defend me from them that rise up against me.

2 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men.

3 For, lo, they lie in wait for my soul: the mighty are gathered against me; not for my transgression, nor for my sin, O Lord.

4 They run and prepare themselves without my fault: awake to help me, and behold.

5 Thou therefore, O Lord God of hosts, the God of Israel, awake to visit all the heathen: be not merciful to any wicked transgressors. Selah.

6 They return at evening: they make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.

7 Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords are in their lips: for who, say they, doth hear?

8 But thou, O Lord, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all the heathen in derision.

9 Because of his strength will I wait upon thee: for God is my defence.

10 The God of my mercy shall prevent me: God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies.

11 Slay them not, lest my people forget: scatter them by thy power; and bring them down, O Lord our shield.

12 For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and lying which they speak.

13 Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be: and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth. Selah.

14 And at evening let them return; and let them make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.

15 Let them wander up and down for meat, and grudge if they be not satisfied.

16 But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble.

17 Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defence, and the God of my mercy.

Serving God, Serving Others

It's not about you. 



Last time I made this statement.
"Not only did Jesus, AKA God, go to be Baptized by John the Baptist, wash His Disciples Feet, teaching them that He Himself came to serve us, He went to the Cross without even a thought of stopping it, which He could have easily done. at any time."
When Jesus was asked, "Who will be the Greatest in Heaven?" He answered this way.
"And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever, therefore, shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me."
Now, this is a two fold answer. First Jesus says "Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven."

Stop. Why? I have three Kids. I am their Father, they are my Children. I love them unconditionally. They trust me without question. If I were to tell my kids, go up on the roof, jump off, you will fly, they would most like do it without a thought. Why? Daddy said so.

This is the kind of Relationship that God wants to have with each and every one of us. That we see Him as our Father, we are to be His Children and we are to have no fear, no doubt, no question. If God tells us to do something, or that something will happen, then we are to accept that as absolute FACT. Why? Because Daddy said so.

Then Jesus said "And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me" Why? Because Children need what? To be Loved, Served, and Taught how to Grow. We are to serve others in the Name of God.

Then we see in three different Books, Jesus tells us plainly
"just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”"{Matthew 20:28}

"For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”"{Mark 10:45}
Then in John 13:13-16 Jesus explains it a bit more.
"You call meTeacherandLord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one anothers feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them."
Jesus was the ultimate example of Humility. Jesus, who has been here from the beginning Genesis 1 on. Some examples, Genesis 1: 26, John 1:1-18, John 5:39, John 8:48-59, Luke 24:27 Just a few. He laid down His Godhood and came to Earth. to do what? Serve. He did not "come to be served, but to serve"

It is in the very service to Others, that God is able to equip you and bless you. It is not about you. It is ALWAYS about serving others. Always. You cannot say you serve God if you are not serving others. Let's look at Matthew 20 a little bit more.
"But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister, And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many." {Matthew 20:25-28}
Again, Jesus is using Himself, God, as an example. Remember last time we talked about Serving God by living as an Example. One of the things we, as Children of God, should be doing is imitating Jesus. Jesus even told us that we would do even more than He did. Look at John 14:12–14
"Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do, and greater works than these will he do because I am going to the Father. Whatever you ask in my name, this I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask me anything in my name, I will do it." 
What did Jesus do? Teach, Preach, Show the Way. He came to serve us. He came to serve us to the point of His own Torture, Abuse, and Death. What have you done for your fellow man lately?

Jesus came knowing the end result was all He went through, because of His Love for us. You have a hard time handing someone $5.00 to buy a Sandwich. Let's get real. Sometimes it is even a challenge to get up and go to Church one day a week.

Make no mistake about it. You are to be Serving Others. You, as a Child of God, should be putting others first.
"Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves." {Philippians 2:3}
We, even Children of God, have the Human trait of Me and Mine First. Or we seek to have respect and admiration of others for our actions. It ought not to be that way with us. We are to Serve God. Which means, God comes first in our lives and it means we should be putting others first before ourselves. To Serve God, Live as an example, and Serve Others.

Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray..

"Oh heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins. Please send the Spirit of Adoption into my life. Help me to get to know the real you. Save me. Please. In the name of Jesus, Amen!"


That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be. You are now a Child of God. A new Creature. You "have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." {Colossians 3:10}
