There is nothing that we can do to earn God’s Love, God’s Mercy.. It is earnestly and freely given. God Loves You. God Wants You where you are & as you are. The biggest trick is actually not doing in a manner where we think we have sole control. God calls us to realize our need for our Creator God’s Love, receive LLJJ, the Light, Love, and Joy of Jesus, and become empowered OnVine with the Root of Jesse. The Old Testament chronicles people becoming too full of themselves, forgetting their need of God, and falling. This is followed by their realizing their need of God’s Love, asking forgiveness, receiving God, and flourishing.
Need the Need!

Bear with one another; forgive each other as soon as a quarrel begins. The lord has forgiven you; now you must do the same. Over all these clothes, to keep them together and complete them, put on love. And may the peace of Christ reign in your hearts, because it is for this that you were called together as parts of one body. Always be thankful.
