The purpose of "Love Like Giants" is to reinforce and practice Agape Love as revealed in the New Testament of the Holy Bible. We accomplish this as directed by the Holy Spirit. LoveLikeGiants shares scripture, prayer, testimony and resources to provide for those in need and create life habits in believers to help keep them on the narrow way that leads to eternal life.
"Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it." -Matthew 7:13-14
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that He lived a perfect life and willingly accepted the punishment due to each of us for our rebellion against God. He overcame death, is seated at the right hand of the Father and has been given all authority in heaven and on Earth. When a follower of Jesus Christ earnestly and intentionally seeks to Love God and to Love their neighbor as themselves in response to this grace, far reaching and lasting change is a natural consequence. Loving the Father and Loving others in this way will always reveal Christ.
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." -2 Corinthians 5: 17-21
God is Not Your GenieGod is not a wish maker, magician, wizard or genie. He doesn't exist to bring us a winning lottery ticket or even our best day. God loves us and we do experience great joy in serving Him, but clearly, God is for doing God's will. My mission as a follower of Christ is to seek the will of the Father, follow His direction and glorify Him in all I do.
This fact may paint God as an overlord or seem unfair, and it absolutely would be if God was like us. But God is God, the one and only. He doesn't strive for perfection; He is the standard for it. God has no restrictions or boundaries; He is the creator with command of every ominous thing. God is by no means held to account for His actions; His thoughts are the perimeters from which justice and mercy are defined.
God is God, and to even entertain the notion that He owes me something, that He needs my good deeds or my ideas to accomplish anything is nothing short of ludicrous. And as long as we are being honest here, I am certain He intervenes in the best of our service or good deeds to prevent an otherwise disastrous or impotent end. God is definitely not a genie or cruel dictator. His will and His desires are far beyond what you or I have capacity to either justify or criticize.
When we catch even a glimpse of Jesus Christ we are awe struck and will
bubble over inpraise.
I pray God reveals Himself as we hear His word.

For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven, And do not return there without watering the earth And making it bear and sprout, And furnishing seed to the sower and bread to the eater; So will My word be which goes forth from My mouth; It will not return to Me empty, Without accomplishing what I desire, And without succeeding in the matter for which I sent it. Isaiah 55:10-11
