    Love such a big little word, what is it?
    This morning one of my little ones stomach wasn't feeling good and they threw up on the floor and I was cleaning it up and he came and asked me are you mad at me I'm sorry that I made a mess.
    I told him I loved him and even though cleaning up the mess wasn't pleasurable by any means, it didn't change how I felt about him in fact because I knew he was in pain and discomfort, (thankfully he felt better after) I had compassion for him and love for him.

    Am I in love with God do we have compassion for how God feels and if we really love him we will understand or at least want understand how he feels and then we do something. We can say I love all day long but love is felt when we do.

    Jesus proposed to me once again and once again I said, YES! We renewed our vows. In many relationships there are times when people grow distant or the love isn't as strong as it once was and in order to make it better you have to work at it. For some people they renew their vows. That's what I felt like was happening between Jesus and I on Sunday. I began to realize the first time I said Yes to Him and we began our relationship, I held pieces of myself back. I never meant to but I have, just as I do from other people. Many times people can be rather careless with other people's hearts and I have experienced a lot of that in my life, so much so that I built walls to protect myself and yet at the same time was always searching for someone who would love me no matter what and walk with me even when I wasn't doing all that great. Jesus has been that for me, yet as much as I have let Him in more and more over the years, and as much as He has healed me in my mind and emotions, I realized I still hadn't let Him in all the way. Now I am. I'm not holding back anything from Him anymore. People are another story but I don't want to live anymore of my life holding back in my relationship with Jesus. Sometimes I have to hope others love me because they don't tell me and their actions don't always show it, so I'm not always sure. I don't want Jesus to ever wonder whether I love Him or not so I keep His commandments and I tell other people about Him.

    I "loved" this message ;) This message really caused me to evaluate how much I really love Jesus and the Father. When Bishop asked the question in the beginning of this message, "how do you know you are in love?" The immediate thought that came to my mind was my relationship with my wife. I do love my wife based upon the "criteria" Bishop talked about in the beginning. (If you are unsure of what he said, go back and listen to it!!!! Trust me, you will love it!)
    As Bishop preached, a statement my wife said to me a few years back when her father died came rushing back to me. She said "I am not afraid of dying but I cannot imagine living my life a day without you!" It made me cry and caused me to fall in love with her more but Bishop message caused her statement to take a different meaning. I began thinking about her statement and how it reflects my relationship with the Father and Jesus. I am definitely not afraid of death but do my actions reflect a relationship with the Father and Jesus that demonstrates to them that I cannot live another day without them, unfortunately, I came up short. Thank God for renewed vows and a different passion that started on Sunday because of this message.
    How do I know I am in love with Jesus, I talked more about Him this week than I have and have more boldness in front of "strangers" than I ever had.

    Ps. Aaron, I so appreciate your story about one of your little ones making a mess from a stomach being upset. That really is a great example of love that we need to be able to show people, especially today because that is what a whole lot of people are doing---making messes from getting sick. I know I've personally done this as I have been working out my salvation, as it were. Allowing God to open my eyes to see and to bring me to a new place of love for Him which leads to a new love for people. As you said, if we really love God we will do something. Just as I made a mess with my words and the Father lovingly cleaned me and the mess up, I want to be there for others who need cleaning up and show them the love and compassion of Jesus and in turn know that by doing something it shows my love for Him.

    Min. Ryan, as always I so appreciate your post. I can relate to your wife's statement to you because I have felt the same way about my husband. And of course your post caused me to take stock of my love for our Father and Jesus. Just as you said, I came up short as well. And like you I am so thankful for the renewed vows. I found myself just finding ways to talk to people about God or about Jesus. I couldn't help myself, I had to say something. Now did that translate into giving a card or video-no. Over the last few days I have found, as Rev. Connie said, some rust, and that I've been in need of some oil. However, I know the more I talk to people and the more time I spend with the Father, the better I'll get at hearing what He's saying and doing and truly becoming effective and fluid instead of kind of clumsy and rusty. Honestly I have kind of felt like a toddler that is just learning to walk and falls a lot and trips over their own feet or really just the air!, but I am also just like that little one who keeps getting back up because they want to learn to walk and then run. That is where I am, learning to walk evangelism every day and pretty soon I'll be running:) . Maybe I can finally catch up to you!! LOL!

    Pastor Aaron:

    Great example of God's love and we extend that to 0our children and relatives but how well do we extend that type of love to others we meet and know? I believe this is something we each must examine. Love never fails!

    Elder Christy

    True we continue as the journey continues to see parts of ourselves we have hidden come out and dissolve into what He wants. But it is something we need to expect and continue in.

    MinisterRyan Welker

    You hit the key . " I don't want to spend another day without you!" It becomes more and more like that every day. God shows us so much every day of his life and His love for us!!

    We need to understand what that scripture "Love never Fails".

    Great job every body.

    Roll on with Jesus!
