Understanding God’s ‘If, And’s, or Buts’ RELATIONALLY! Part 1

Covenant Love

In this Gospel Message entitled ” Understanding God’s ‘If, And’s, or Buts’ Relationally!” Part 1, Pastor Timothy Brassell of  New Life Fellowship of Baltimore, Proclaims The GOOD NEWS of the LOYAL GOD Revealed in Jesus Christ!

Because God gives Himself and His own Relationship to us as His Gift to us in Jesus, then God Himself is His own Good News! God Himself is our Great Blessing and Reward! Practically speaking then, the best way for us to understand what God is saying to us, even in scripture, is to understand more about God Himself, and especially as Revealed in Jesus His Son! Jesus Revealed that God IS Father, Son and Spirit not a doctrine! To understand God’s Relationship is not academic, or ivory tower stuff only because in Christ God is Revealed to be THE Way, THE Truth and THE Life!

It is in that Gospel context that we begin to understand that:

  • God does have some “If’s, and’s & but’s”  BUT only in His Unconditional Love for us!
  • We can only have a proper understanding of those words in the Light of God’s own Relationship, which has been shared with us in Jesus!
  • As we understand Who God is, and who we are in Him, we have to reconsider and toss out our broken views of “If’s, and’s & but’s” and receive them for the Good News that they are!

In short, hear about the God of Loyal Love and of God’s love that makes a choice for no particular reason! Yay!

    I love this! It is so right on.

    It’s not a question of doing, it’s a question of being and then doing from that source of being and relationship.

    So simple, and yet so profound when we catch it in our hearts and spirits instead of just affirming it intellectually and not changing.
