Think on These Things: The love of Almighty God

In the book of Ezekiel we read, “I will gather you from the nations and assemble you from the countries over which you have been scattered

In the book of Ezekiel we read the following, “I will gather you from the nations and assemble you from the countries over which you have been scattered, and I will restore to you the land of Israel. I will give them a new heart and put a new spirit within them; I will remove the stony heart from their bodies and replace it with a natural heart so that they will live according to my statutes and observe and carry out ordinances; thus they shall be my people and I will be their God.”

“What has this to do with me? Let everyone do what he will; my sustenance is safe, and my horror to.”

In his great love for us He sent His Divine son to redeem us by suffering and dying on the cross, was buried and rose again from the dead. So that now we all would have a chance through baptism to be filled with his grace, and if we die in his grace to go to Heaven. Yet it is so sad that so many people today have no time for God or for his church. They throw his great love right back at him by their indifference and their unwillingness to accept his love. My good people remember the price that was paid for each one of you. Is it too much to give Him one hour of our love and talents each week? As Jesus says, “What good will it do if you gain the whole world, but lose your soul? We all will die one day and have to stand before him who created us and tell him how we returned his love or failed to do so.


May He in his love richly bless you and your families.
