One of my favorite songs.
JESUS IS LOVE
Song by The Commodores

Father, help your children,
And don't let them fall by the side of the road.
Mmm, and teach them to love one another,
And heaven might find a place in their hearts;
'Cause Jesus is love.
He won't let you down,
And I know He's mine forever,
Ah, in my heart.
We've got to walk on, walk on through temptation,
'Cause His Love and His wisdom will be our helping hand.
And I know the truth and His word will be our salvation.
Lift up our heart to be thankful and glad
'Cause Jesus is love.
He won't let you down,
And I know He's mine deep down in my soul.
Jesus is love.
I want to follow your star wherever it leads me,
And I don't mind Lord, I hope you don't mind.
I want to walk with you, and talk with you,
And do all the things you want me to do,
'Cause I know that Jesus, Jesus is love, I know,
And if you ask, I'll show love is the word forever,
Ah, in my heart, help me, heart, heart.
I know, I know, I know, I know His love's the power,
His love's the glory forever, ever, ever, ever.
Who can bring you love?
Who can bring you joy?
Who can turn your life around?
Oh, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,
Who will pick you up, ooh, where you fall?
Who will stand beside you? Who will love us all?
Hey, Jesus, Jesus.
Who can heal your body? Who can make it strong?
Who can help you to hold out a little while longer?
Oh yeah, Jesus loves you, Jesus wants you,
You can call Him, He will answer.
Call Him in the morning, call Him in the evening

WASH ONE ANOTHER'S FEET (The Passover Supper)

At the last supper, at a time called the Passover, before his cruxificion, Jesus left this with his disciples, indicating how they should treat one another. "If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you." He further explained that "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that receiveth whomsoever I send receiveth me; and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me." This act depicted how the followers of Christ should be hospitable to everyone they encounter, even their enemies, but especially to each other. (John 13:14-20).

As you probably already know, the washing of feet was an act of hospitality in that day. After traveling on dusty roads in sandals, guests would be received by washing the dust and dirt off their feet, thus refreshing them. As pointed out in the latest issue of "Our Daily Bread," Jesus even washed the feet of Judas, who betrayed him; but being deeply troubled in his spirit, even we are deeply troubled at the perverseness of this world and many of its people.

Yet, we know that Jesus was appointed to this suffering at the hands in sinners, that he might make known the way of salvation. And, that his followers show mercy just as we have been shown mercy. Jesus showed, by his death and resurrection, that there is life after death.

Therefore, let us, who believe, show all hospitality at all times, and let us follow the example left us (Jesus took the cup... and took the bread and gave thanks,... and gave unto them, saying, "This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me..." (Luke 22 17-20); and honor his sacrifice until he returns as set by the Apostle Paul, "For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come." (1Corinthians 12:26).

HAPPY EASTER

WHAT'S GOING ON?*

Mother, Mother
Far too many of you crying
Brother, Brother, Brother
There's far too many of you dying
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some loving here today, well

Father, Father
We don't need to escalate
War is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some lovin here today

Oh, picket lines and picket signs
Don't punish me with brutality
Talk to me so you can see

What's going on?

Mother, Mother
Everybody thinks we're wrong
Oh, but who judge us
Simply cause our hair is long (skin is dark, where we're born, etc.)

Oh, you know we've got to find a way
To bring some loving here today

Talk to me, so you can see
What's going on?
What's going on?

UNDER ATTACK-WARFARE

"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled." (2 Corinthians 10:3-6)

I am reminded of this saying of the Apostle Paul, and while I have some understanding (in the midst of the battle), it doesn't always register immediately when you're under attack. I don't mean attack by outside forces, but those from within (in the mind) when you are least aware. We judge that we see, hear, touch, with our senses, but what of that we don't see? Spiritual, thinking to strip us of our faith, hope and peace? (Ephesians 6:11-18) For example, you are at peace, suddenly some word or thing comes to you that totally blows your mind. Now you're upset, possibly even angry at the person or the situation. Your mind is now engaged in this drama and you can't stop thinking about it all day. You might even lose sleep over it and it can go on for days. If you stop a moment to think, you might see this as an attack. The devil comes only to kill, steal and destroy. The story of Job is a good example of the saying, "the devil may have brought it, but the Lord sho sent it."

If we apply the principals of 2 Corinthians 10:3, we might be spared the aggravation, and be aware of what is actually happening.

1) Cast down our imaginations (we can think up some horrific stuff)
2) And every high thing that is against the knowledge of God. We know what God has said concerning forgiveness, faith, peace, afflictions, and the like. (2Corinthians 6:2-10; 1Thessalonians 3:1)
3) Bring into captivity every thought. If we have been taught of Christ by the Word of God, we know how we ought to obey and our thoughts should follow. For Jesus said, "Why do you call me Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?" (Luke 6:46)
4) and be ready to revenge all disobedience, WHEN YOUR OBEDIENCE IS FULFILLED. We need to check ourselves out BEFORE we react to someone else's acts.

I am reminded that evil enters a man through the mind (Matthew 12:43-45) So we must guard our hearts and minds; and pray always. (Philippians 4:7) In Jesus we have already won the battle. (John 16:33)
